Umstead Loop

This 30+ mile mixed terrain ride heads west from OCCP through Downtown Raleigh past North Carolina State University and Meredith College to the Rocky Branch Greenway, North Carolina Museum of Art, Schenck Forest and Umstead State Park. There are two water fountains and a bike repair stand in Umstead and many service along the route in an out of town. Start your ride at Yellow Dog Bread across from the shop and swing by Boulted Bread on South Street on the way back into town before returning to OCCP. You'll need the fuel. Umstead is hilly and a blast to ride it's crushed limestone trails. Yield to horses and pedestrians.
