It was well-traveled but not too crowded to enjoy. I parked at Herndon Park and rode north. Trail was easy to follow and very flat for this area. I can't wait to go back and ride the entire trail!

Loved riding the trail, as ever! Not too busy, felt safe, friendly riders and walkers as well as ourselves. Went late in the day on a Sunday. Perfect afternoon.

The trail is superb-tall trees on both sides ensures you are always in shade even on the hottest of days. A flat long track that is well used by runners, cyclists, walkers. If you are into nature - this is a great trail to try....More

This is a nice straight trail. there are a lot of families and people on the trail on the weekends so not ideal for a fast ride, but good for some exercise and a long straight trail.

Yeah the one at New Hill looks closer, especially if your starting point is to the west of Holly Springs. Otherwise taking 540 up north and going to the Wimberly Road entry point shouldn't be too far either.
