Location: Fayetteville
Miles: 7+
Skill Level: Intermediate
Directions: HEFNER TRAIL IS NOW OFF LIMITS. TICKETS are being issued by Forest Service Rangers and military officials. and most people thought these trails were legal. Hopefully, folks in Fayetteville will build some more trails, legally, as the flat, sandy soil makes for some fun riding.

They are constantly adding more single track to this trail. The forest is a little different than you might see in the Triangle. It's sandy and the trees are spread out. A good place to ride if everything else is covered in mud. It has great flow and there are a couple decent climbs but for the most part, it's flat and fast.
