Greensboro Mountain Biking Trails

The Greensboro Parks and Recreation Department is fortunate to have so many well-maintained mountain biking trails within parks and surrounding the City's Watershed Lakes. Greensboro Fat Tire Society, our local mountain biking club, has helped build and maintain many of these fantastic trails.

country park by Robert SethOur City has almost 40 miles of mountain biking trails to experience. These trails provide recreational enjoyment for the experienced BMX biker, those just starting out in the sport, and everyone in between. 

The trails are preserved in a primitive manner and are linear -- you ride out and back along the same path from the trailhead where you started. Parking is available at most trail entrances, but is limited to roadside parking in some areas. Most of these trails are shared with hikers so make sure to check out proper mountain
biking etiquette
before you ride. 

Due to rain and other weather conditions, mountain biking trails will sometimes close. Check the Greensboro Fat Tire Society website for current trail closure reports or call the Trails Rain Line at 336-373-2MTB.

Keeley Park Pump Track
Visit the Keeley Park Pump Track for a continuous dirt loop of rollers and berms designed for bicycling without the use of pedals. The pump track is an awesome way to build skills and fitness in a safe, fun and low risk environment. All ages and levels of experience can enjoy these two pump tracks, one for adults and one for kids plus a skills course.

Skate Parks for BMX
Latham Skate Park opens in May. This park includes 10,000 square feet of bikeable area for all levels of experience and an eight foot bowl. Stay tuned for more details on the grand opening.

Bikes are also allowed at the new Glenwood Skate Spot. It is a 4,000 square feet park with quarter pipes, boxes and rails. Check it out, but don't forget your pads and helmet.
