Q: Is this a good trail for begginers? -Guest

A: It is definitely the easiest intermediate trail in the charlotte area I would say. It is a step up from the green trails at lake norman (monbo, hawk, etc). It is slightly more challenging than the lake loop at white water center. There are a couple rock gardens/technical features that may present a challenge to beginners.

Review: Not the most technical, not the easiest, but probably the best trail in the Charlotte area. Tons of traffic of all skill levels on the weekends.
Take it easy if it's your first time.

Review: Sherman is a great trail. The main loop crosses the emergency road several times, making it easy to bale out early, if needed.

Review: There are no boring parts of any of this trail. Short climbs into fast twisty sections with jumps and obstacles for different skill levels.

Review: My first time out at Sherman Branch while in Charlotte 5/11. I did the main (yellow) trail and highly recommend it to all who are in the area. I'll be back for more!

Review: Awesome place to ride. I'm a intermediate rider from West Virginia and this place blew everywhere I've ever rode back home out of the water. In single track anyway. Very flowy some rocky sections, man made obsticals and jump through out.

Review: As a novice, there were several areas on this trail that were out of my league but there was always an "easy out" which made them super enjoyable. High berms, really great flow, the uphill isn't too steep. My favorite trail I've ridden so far!

Review: This was a fun trail with many options for jumps and stuff like that. Overall it was fun but could be better so that's why it has a 4 star rating.

Review: One of my favorite trails to ride in Charlotte, it is well maintained by the TTB and is an absolute blast to ride. Its very flowly and easy to keep a fast pace through most of it. Roots and rocks are present but not terribly, there are some drops, log bridges, jumps, and berms littered through the trails. if you have time to ride one trail in charlotte for the day I recommend this. Its fun as something for everyone!

Review: Pretty good trail very well maintained. Easy enough for beginners and has challenges for the experts. Very little climbing. I have young kids that ride frequently they really liked this trail and were able to ride everything this place had to offer.
