The trails themselves are covered by other reviews. Not very exciting, but they work in a pinch. The draw to this area is the opportunity to get creative. If you make the climb to the very top, you're able to drop in over the sides of the hill for a moderately fun downhill experience. I wonder if it would be possible for the trail builders to actually carve a path down the main mountain?? The sheer size of "Mt Trashmore" would be perfect for designing a few downhill thrill trails.

Head over to Lower Landfill Hill where you'll find a skills area for beginner-intermediate. If you're comfortable launching through the air, this won't excite you. But the small rock gardens, skinnies, and wall ride with a mellow slant are good for getting toes wet on features. I would LOVE to see some mellow tabletop jumps or small drop features added. Raleigh just doesn't have many places to practice these skills.

Charge down the SE corner of the Lower Landfill Hill for a straightline downhill plunge which has been cleared of weeds and loose rock. You can get going pretty fast; just make sure to hit the brakes close to the bottom because there is no run out!

Rode this today since everything else was closed. It’s not like Crabtree or Forest Ridge or anywhere else. This is like if you just need to get out for a quick ride and have 10 or 15 minutes it’s VERY much like Regency trails (if you know you know) but without all the fun. It’s a makeshift ridge line trail alongside a fence on a slope. It’s almost like you’re riding in the woods back behind someone’s house. It’s fun for a quickie if everything else is closed, or for taking the kids or family. It’s got a lot of paved path options.

Two of the three main trails are "out and back" trails that will end up in congestion, and are not long. As compared to other nearby options, it just wasn't very fun. I took my 11 and 9yr old daughters, and they much prefer Crabtree, Harris, and Williamson to this.
