Lake Crabtree has the biggest and best Pump Track in the region (in fact they have two), plus a very nice Skills Area and 5 miles of mellow singletrack. Down by the lake, you'll find a connector trail leading to Umstead State Park and 13 miles of easy doubletrack winding through the forest. For some, Umstead's real attraction is exploring the many non-sanctioned trails that riddle the hardwood hollows. Right or wrong, these renegade trails with their scavenged bits and pieces are testament to the tenacity and creativity of urban trailbuilder's art.
$50 per person, includes lunch, snacks, coffee, water, Gatorade.
