​Trails feature the best of Bear Wallow Trails with beautiful single track that weaves through the forest at Long Ridge.

The Battle at Bear Wallow was established in 2012 as an annual fundraiser to support Access Health Africa, a non-profit organization that provides quality, integrated health services and education to communities in Malawi, Africa.

Access Health Africa is the new face of World Camp, founded 15 years ago at UNC-Chapel Hill by a group of undergraduate students. In fact, their world headquarters was once located at Long Ridge Farms!

Today, Access Health Africa has become a leader in providing health education, HIV/AIDS youth support services, and advanced healthcare in Malawi, Africa.
