The Shotgun trails are located just outside Raleigh, N.C., about two hours east of Greenville. Named "Shotgun" because the locals commonly find shotgun shells in the dirt from the previous landowner, the trails are now privately owned. The new owner allows the locals to ride and dig there freely and they've quickly become an amazing set of trails. The locals are super friendly and the pros in Greenville frequently ride there. With a heavy crew of riders including, Rob Darden, Josh Perry, Rob Armour, Vince Byron, Scott Wirch, Nick Digeroloma and Jeremiah Smith, here's what went down during our visit to the Shotgun Trails.
