Trail Description
About this trail
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: Not a beginner trail if you want to go fast. I know because I'm a beginner. It is challenging but very fun. I had to try several sections a second time and still couldn't get them right. Lnsp, uswwc and north Meck are easy compared to Farmers but the challenge is why I'll return here for sure. Def. recommend

Review: This is not a beginner trail. Do not go here thinking it is a beginner trail. This is definitely on the more advanced side of the intermediate spectrum, especially for a trail so close to the city. The trail is typical of most charlotte trails in that it has many roots. I like that the trail offers optional challenges and trails to test your mettle on when you feel like you have mastered the easier trails. There are other trails around that offer more flow and more technical sections, but this is a good mix of everything. My only gripe is that the green trail really should be rated blue. The hardest switchback in the entire ride (and one of the hardest sections of the entire trail if you include the rocky climb right after it) is on the green loop. Overall a good trail with good people maintaining it. There are supposed to be new sections coming soon, so keep an eye out for that.

For easier trails head to LNSP, north meck, USNWC, and other trails in the area.

Similar Trail: rocky river trail, some of the more technical parts of USNWC

Review: Very tight and flowly single track, has a decent amount of roots, the black diamond trails have a lot of rollers and small jumps in between the tight switchbacks. The rest of the trails are rated blue and are a blast. Not a lot of technical sections, great for beginners/intermediate riders! Wish it was longer

Similar Trail: Francis Beatty Ford (roots), Denver XC Trail (flow and layout)

Review: Overall a pretty decent trail. Seems to drain / dry better than other trails in the area and is very well maintained. Offers some fun challenges however a few are really hampered by HUGE roots. I realize that roots are a part of mountain biking but they seem to be a bigger factor here. I few features that would otherwsie be fun to hit are overly complicated by roots (ie big roots in the landing area of a drop off). I would go back during the wet season when other trails are often a lot more muddy, but during normal conditions there are better options in the area.

Review: If the roots take away from your experience than you need to work on your riding skills. :)

Review: Yes, there are roots at Fisher Farm. Yes, roots are part of MTB'ing. Yes, those roots in certain areas are difficult. But the trail is like a puzzle or riddle begging to be solved. Those roots are some of the challenge to riding the trail cleanly. The drop off with the roots in the landing are fine...if you choose the right place to land. Otherwise,keep practicing until you clean it. Fisher is not a fast, smooth, wide open trail like LNSP or Sherman Branch. It's just different. :)

Review: I agree with you it is really rutty and that takes away from the fun experiance one such choice is North Meck Park in Huntersville its not as rutty (still got some ruts but not nearly as much) another better option is lake norman State Park in Troutman

Similar Trail: North Meck, and Lake Norman State Park

Review: Awesome trails. I think it is rated a little easier than it actually is. Lots of roots but tons of fun. This is not an easy or beginner trail. It is the precusor and little brother to the backyard trails. It would be nice if different areas had trails ratedin order of difficulty or trail progressions. Start at lake norman, wwc, north meck, francis beaty, signal hill, fisher farm, backyard trails. Rocky river is easier than fisher, EXCEPT for the three monster climbs.

Review: Fun trail. I really like the Enchanted Forest section. Little bit of climbing, lots of tight twisting sections and a few fun challenging sections. Definitely worth checking out if you are in the area. It is a bit of a drive for me for the lower amount of miles that it has to offer. Coming from the Park Road Shopping Center area, I frequently get caught in traffic on the way up there.

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!
