About Our 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. Piedmont Fat Tire Society, our local mountain biking club, has been helping build and maintain many of these fantastic trails since 1995.

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 Piedmont 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.

Two Skate Parks for BMX

Bikes are allowed at the Glenwood Skate Spot, a 4,000-square-foot park with quarter pipes, boxes and rails. Bikes are also allowed at the Latham Skate Park. This park includes 10,000 square feet of bikeable area for all levels of experience and an eight-foot bowl. Check them out, but don't forget your pads and helmet!
