Weekly MTB Ride at Harris Lake - ALL SKILLS

  • Harris Lake County Park

    2112 County Park Drive, New Hill, NC (map)

    34.253414 -78.003372

  • Let's meet at Cypress Shelter parking lot (paved lot to left all the way into the park).
  • Let's go mountain bike Harris Lake! This will be an intermediate skills ride. We will separate into groups depending on the average speeds of the participants. Please post your average speed (be honest) in your comments when you RSVP. This will help us figure out how best to separate into groups.  If anyone is willing to possibly lead a group please let me know that as well in your comments.


    Trail rating: Beginner-Advanced
    Estimated distance: 8-12 miles
    Estimated time: 1.5-2 hours

    We will spend some extra time in the black diamond section, say 15-20 minutes, which will allow riders to pick the routes of their choice through this area.  There are about six different ways you can go through this section and if you reverse the direction it gives you even more options.

    Helmets are mandatory. Bring plenty of water. Check the trail status on TriangleMTB.com  or call the Park Office at (919)[masked] before leaving. Please be ready to ride at 5:45 PM.


    Harris Lake Trail Description from TriangleMTB.com: Like Lake Crabtree Park, Harris Lake's mountain bike trails are close to a lake, made up of several loops that connect to a main trail, and are managed by Wake County Parks. The breeze coming across the water can be quite refreshing on a hot summer day! The major loops here are signed as "beginner", "intermediate" and "advanced", and can be enjoyed by all skill levels. A few optional "double black diamond" loops have been added near the advanced section. This trail has something for everyone, from the "just got my first off-road bike" beginner to the more seasoned rider, and all obstacles have optional ride-arounds so that beginners and veterans can enjoy the trails together. In short, this is just a good set of single-track trails. Currently there is approximately 8 miles of bicycling trails.

    I think Steven will be working late as well. Feel free to ride. Just check to make sure the trail status before you leave. More rain is expected.

    I didn't pack my bike this morning on the way to work because it was pouring. I looked at the radar and did not expect it to clear up. Enjoy the ride.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.

Rafaël, started French Conversation Group
