    Is there an actual address I could enter on the GPS? I've never been and I'm new to the area...

      1400 Aviation Pkwy, Morrisville, NC should bring you to the entrance of the park. the parking lot we're meeting at is above the boatramps, near the end of the roads going into the park. next to the trail entrances for loop 5/lake connector. (There is also a fenced in area with RTP High School sailboats next to/in the parking lot.)

    Interested in riding this evening. Are the trails at Crabtree open? The Triangle MTB site shows closed, but that was posted yesterday

    March 20, 2013

    • david

      I cannot say for certain that it is open, but by looking at the condition of my local trails, I would be very surprised if Crabtree is closed. If it is, the meetup will probably be moved to Umstead.
