The outdoor adventure park, which opened in 2007, has an extensive high quality trail system. There are over 100 miles of trails for riders of various skill levels. Trails are marked for difficulty from green to black diamond. Trails wind through the woods, over hills, and into valleys. There are some stream crossings. Some trails are wide enough for two vehicles and other trails are quite narrow. There are ten miles of dedicated Enduro trails, single track dirt bike only trails.
Carolina Adventure World has a lighted and timed drag strip measuring 300 feet. There is also an oval track featuring three banked turns. Motocross riders will enjoy the junior and vintage motocross tracks that cover challenging terrain. Extreme riders may want to try one of the park’s mud bogs. Those who prefer rocky terrain may enjoy the challenging Rock Crawl, Grizzly Hill, or Mammoth Hill areas.
The park allows all terrain vehicles (ATVs), two person utility terrain vehicles (UTVs), and dirt bikes. Jeeps and three wheelers are not allowed. All riders are required to wear helmets. There is an on-site storage facility for ATVs. Carolina Adventure World rents vehicles and equipment. Races are held at the facility throughout the year.
