Walking trails and mountain bike trails in Briar Chapel
The miles of trails are a big attraction for Briar Chapel. When the neighborhood is complete there will be 24 miles of trails for both walking and biking. There are 14 miles of trails right now. The Briar Chapel trails connect to other neighborhoods. There is also a lot of road biking in this part of Chatham County because of the beautiful rural landscape and light traffic. The two types of trails are very different. The walking trails are wider and paved and mulched in places. You can see an example of the mountain bike trails in the photo above.
My client Shad Lawton tells me about the mountain bike trails in this video.
A ride on the trails
Here is an amazing ride on the Briar Chapel mountain bike trails with Scott Gerstl. I love it! It’s about as close as I’m going to get to a ride on the trails. My bike is a beach bike that I keep at Harkers Island.
