Description
Currently 4 miles(Phase II) of tight twisty single track broken up with a few field climbs and some added optional challanges: some nice sweeper turns, water-bars, rock gardens, bridges, and a rock drop-in.



Follow the red arrow blazes with the Tarheel Trailblazer logo for the recommended route throughout the trail.



Trail turf is mixture of clay and light dirt/sand mix, pretty well packed. Appears to dry very well, but hold off for 24hrs after a rainfall. Trail is maintained by the Tarheel Trailblazers. With the completion of Phase I in Spring 2005, f**ing of Phase II will begin. Construction will start in Fall '05 on Phase II and will add 3-4 miles of trail, making for a total length of almost 6 miles.

Review: I recently started mountain biking and this trail was awesome. Lots of downhill during the first half along with twists, turns, breaks, and more speed! The second half is more technical. It is also a lot of uphill and challenging. Very nice trail!

Review: This is a pretty solid trail. Well-maintained with plenty of fast sections and some technical stuff on the black sections. Considering the region and the terrain, this is pretty good stuff.

Review: Very short trail and not the easiest to follow. The few black diamond sections are fun but the rest of the trail just doesnt seem to flow to good. If it were closer for me i would probably like it more but there are too many better trails just as far of a drive that i would much rather ride. Cant see myself making the drive again anytime soon.

Review: This is one of the best trails in Charlotte. The Tarheel Trailblazers keep the trail in great shape and the new phase III really adds to it all.

Review: At first it may be confusing for some people, but once you've ridden it, it become pretty easy to understand. The technical obstacles really make things interesting and can test you if you're a good rider. If you're a bad rider, the obstacles will let you know quickly. It is very well maintained, the Tarheel Trailblazers are doing a great job keeping it in shape. If you are a beginner this trail will test you and probably cause you to fall down a couple times. If you are an expert, then you will have a fun trail to ride on.

Review: Great group of trails. The options are good for more experienced riders and the climbs make for a nice quick burn. most of the trails are fast and flow quite well. this is a great place to thrash after work for a quick ride or to do loop after loop. The town of Davidson is a cool little village with some fun shops and places to eat. Nightlife in the area of Lake Norman is awesome with all the bars and lots of live bands.

Review: The Phase 3 section is open and has kept with the theme of continuous improvement that is the trademark at Fisher Farm! The Phase 3 section makes use of the massive sloping ravine which you see on your left(of the gravel road) when you are driving to the trailhead parking lot. This latest addition adds at least a couple miles to the trail, so total length has to be close or exceeding 6mi now. Phase 3 also makes use of some huge boulder sections, constructed bridges of significant length, and some tight switchbacks up and down the face of the ravine. While each trail is like a fingerprint, I couldn't help thinking of the Roller Coaster section of Sherman Branch as I rode parts of it. But Fisher's Phase 3 section offers a fast, hard-pack clay surface with very few roots. You can access Phase 3 a couple ways, but the most fluid is by taking the left option into the small ravine after the first open field crossing, just under 1mi from the start of the trail. While this direction is a bit vague, it's hard not to 'trip' into the new section. Fisher Farm has firmly maintianed itself as one of the BEST local trails and best kept secrets of the Charlotte area. If you're traveling I-77, you can be on the Fisher Farm trail within 10min of taking Exit 30...There are some great restaurants/eateries in the Davidson downtown area for a post-ride meal(my fave is The Soda Shoppe), see the "Travel" tab above and enjoy! By the way, show your support for the hard work that has gone into this excellent trail by stopping by "The Cycle Path" bike shop just down the road in Cornelius: http://thecyclepath.net/about/ Look for the WHITE painted bike on the east side of N Main Street.

Review: Phase III trail building is underway!! This excellent trail owes its 'hidden treasure' status to the efforts of volunteers...if you've ridden this trail or plan to in 2010 - please get involved! Phase III is going to be unique from the rest of the trail and will include many more bridges, TTF's (technical trail features) and rock gardens. Plus there will be plenty of heart pounding, lung burning climbing. For more information... http://www.thecyclepath.net/about/

Review: This is a fantastic trail. I love that it begins with some fast descents and it keeps you on your game. Great job! Good for a newbie but not easy by any means.

Review: Fisher Farm is a fun trail to ride. The first half is pretty fast, but the second half slows down quite a bit. Once you make it the the Expert only part, Beware! The end of the trail is my favorite, you get towards the end, and you think that you could do another lap and then the final climb out leaves you in perfect shape to plop the bike on top of your car feeling just right about yourself. Not too worn out but not wanting to ride anymore.

Review: FISHER FARM PHASE 2 IS NOW OPEN!!! The Tarheel Trailblazers have added an additional 2 mile section bringing the full trail to about 4 miles. The NEW Phase 2 section includes an advanced section which is a switchback climb that crosses a ravine about 4-5 times, obstacles included. Get out there and enjoy!

Review: This is trail has been a labor of love since it's inception. As you might guess...I'm the one responsible for the design and layout. It was a lot of hard work not just by me but by dozens of other people who have volunteered their free time to help build it. Special thanks go out to Edward, Chris,Barb and Bob. They have tirelessly worked beside me to help finish this project up. Come out and check out the 'Farm! PS By the way...I'm not going to rate this trail because it would be biased and there are far too many trails around that I love to ride as well. :)

Review: TRAILWORK HAS BEGUN ON PHASE II of the MTB trails at Fisher Farm!! Trail has been f**ed, cleared, and should be ready for riding in the near future. Phase II should add an additional 2-3 miles to the Fisher Farm trails. There is also an "Advanced" option that will be included in the second phase. If you are interested in volunteering, see "Trailwork Schedule" at http://www.tarheeltrailblazers.com/ If you have further questions about the trail, see: http://www.tarheeltrailblazers.com/cgi-bin/yabb/yabb.cgi
