Ebeneezer Church Rd + ADD NEW ROUTE
- Trip Toolbox
From the intersection of Edwards Mill Rd and Duraleigh Rd. Go northwest on Duraleigh Rd. and keep to the left. Turn left at the next intersection onto Ebeneezer Church Rd.
It runs along the border of Umstead Park and crosses Crabtree creek. There are some nice turns and one "S" curve. When you get to the intersection where you see the church, turn around and ride back through the other way!
This route borders a state park. It is well forested on one or sometimes both sides of the road. There are some homes and developments opposite of the park but tastefully landscaped and some grassy mounds to block road noise. The church itself is a quaint building reminiscent of a bygone era. A nice ride through the woods in the middle of a city.
This road is mostly straight with small elevation changes, some nice twisty parts spaced out, and one "s" turn. The road is very well maintained as it is an access point for the state park.
There is a shopping center near the start of the road. There is a Harris-Teeter and several nice restaurants and stores. there is a gas station to fill your tank as well. It is a little less than five miles before it intersects with Glenwood Ave. Glenwood has more amenities than can be listed here. If you go past Glennwood there are many good motorcycle roads up past rte 540.
I take Leesville past rte 540 and ride on Norwood. It is especially nice past Creedmore. run down Six forks to Mt Vernon Church and take that to wherever. It is just beautiful riding in that area.
