Any good trails around Clayton/Raleigh, NC?

I am somewhat new to enduro riding, not in my twenties any more, for sure. Love riding the trails around my home and am blessed with some good ones but I would love to go explore new trails...preferably some dry ones, which is admittedly hard to find this time of year in NC.

I'm a huge Romaniacs and Hell's Gate (as well as all Hard Enduro) fan but lets not kid myself. I am a pretty casual trail rider and pretty new to this all so I need trails that are nice but okay for someone pretty new to all this.

Any recommendations?

I just moved to this area and was wondering the same thing. Moved from Western NC where there are many trails. I will watch this thread to see if anyone post anything!

I'll be interested to see if anything pops up. I just picked up a KLR after an eight year hiatus from riding and am looking for some dirt roads/ trails, too.

Kawi-Mike, have you been to Uwharrie? Sounds like it might be fun, but I'm not sure I want to compete for space with 4x4's, is that the case there? If you've been, or anyone else?

Thanks....


Jeff

Near Troy, NC, looks like two hours from Raleigh, where I'm located.

http://www.stateparks.com/uwharrie.html

I watched a YouTube vid of some two stroke dirt bikes tearing it up on some trails, but it looks like they have different levels of trails as well as hiking trails, etc. Like I previously posted, I'm just getting back into motorcycling and was really mostly a street rider, so.....

I'm going to ask around, but I'd like to find something more local for starters.

I am located in Knightdale (6 weeks now). I have not heard of that but sounds like a good place to check out. I have a KLR and a KLX. Both 650's. I do not ride as hard as I used to. The wife and I hit a deer on the KLR 2 years ago and I still have some pain issues. 3 months in the hospital.

Hope you feel better soon, Kawi Mike. I, too, would like something more local for the time being. Maybe something will pop up. Thanks guys. :)

I used to ride Uwharrie all the time and it's a great place. You can ride all day and not cross the same ground twice. I never worried about the 4x4s as they were a courteous bunch. Go ride there . . . . you won't be sorry.

Thanks for the well wishes. I am almost back. I can do 100% of the things I used to do just not at 100%.
