Congratulations are in order for of the SirBikesALot community, Jim Pryer of BC P&R, and Dave Staebler, for their efforts to bring mountain biking to Brunswick County! Steve Mangiacpre and Greg Brinson of Cape Fear Southern Off-Road Bicycle Association (SORBA) have a Memorandum of Understanding with our Brunswick County Parks and Recreations Department to produce mountain bike trails within our new Brunswick County Nature Park. It is located half mile north of the Town Creek Bridge just south of Leland North Carolina, on Highway 133 (google link). Preliminary plans are to have six miles of exciting beginner to intermediate single track constructed very soon, by some talented Sorba professionals and volunteers. Sorba members are asked to join in the construction beginning around 4/17/10. Contact SirBikesALot for exact details.
The 3.4 miles of hiking trail are now wide enough to entertain bikers who can fully respect the nature lovers and dog walkers who enjoy our new nature trail. There is only one sketchy section about 200 yards north of the kayak docks, with a narrow down hill left turn. Be sure to bring your water bottle and come enjoy the new trails!!!
