Trails

New trail development (and maintenance of existing trails) is important to the preservation of open space and encourages a healthy lifestyle for bikers of all ages.   As dedicated stewards of the environment, TORC employs the International Mountain Biking  Association’s (IMBA) trail-building best practices.

TORC has built strong relationships with Parks and Recreation Departments in Wake, Durham, and Orange counties.  We also have a working relationship with a private land developer.  These partnerships provide local mountain bikers with opportunities for trails access while protecting the future of existing trails.

    How do I find out if a ride has been cancelled due to rain? Im scheduled to ride tonight at 5:45 for the ride like a girl and I don’t live that close. Can someone let me know please as soon as possible. Thanks

    Hello and thanks for doing what you do. Just stumbled across this inspiring site and have a burning question: Where can I find the best off road trails to suit my Surly Cross Check? I’m new to the Triangle and live near Wake Med/Waverly Place in South Cary. Thanks & Speed Safely! – Josh

      Hi Josh!

      Welcome and sorry about the late reply! There are several options for you and your Cross Check around here. Generally speaking, Umstead Park is a great place to ride your cross bike. Depending on how confident you are on your steed, you could also ride some of the lighter single track like Lake Crabtree or Lake Harris county parks.

      Ride on!
