Review: really fun intermediate trail. there's a great flow and not a lot of elevation change, so it's fairly fast. a couple obstacles sprinkled around, but the trail is predominantly smooth. really nice trail maintenance and interesting, well-built features.

Review: Incredible trail especially being in such close proximity to Charlotte. Nice,smooth, rolling terrain. Not too technical, but fun and fast! Will make a point to hit it up every time I come to Charlotte!

Review: Best trail in the charlotte area in my opinion. Although not the most challenging in the technical aspect it does have a few places to challenge you but is the best place to just have fun and enjoy a ride. Not too many bad roots and has a few good rocky areas to tackle. It is always worth the trip to ride.

Review: I was just out there and it was clear except once you got on Roller Coaster I had some trouble in the mud with spinning or slipping around but it wasn't bad overall. Nice berms and bridges.

Review: This is my new favorite in the Charlotte area. Great mix of just about everything. Some fast flowing sections, great bermed turns, some fun technical features (all have workarounds). No steep climbs but a few long gradual ones. This is a great trail for an intermediate rider to work on their skills and get better. I for one figured out that I need to learn to ride rock gardens A LOT better.

Review: I live 3 miles from this trail so when I need a quick ride this is where I go. When I first moved to Charlotte 6 years ago I thought this trail was too easy and didn't like it. I have grown to love it's flowy corners and constant upgrades. This trail is extremely well maintained. There is always something new and problems are fixed very quickly. This trail is just doggone fun!

Review: Thus is probably the best trail I've ridden so far in and around the Charlotte area. Very fun. There were some difficult uphill rock gardens on the lake loop which were too advanced for me. I am by no means a beginner but definitely not an advanced enough rider for those areas yet. Hopefully I will get there after I get used to my new bike. Maybe I will try them with my hard tail 29er. Definitely an intermediate trail system with a few expert areas - in my opinion.

Review: Fast and flowing trail. A couple of jumps, and wooden features... Rollercoaster loop is like a rollercoaster, lots of up and down. The main loop is just plain fast and flowing and the lake loop has a couple of challenging rock sections.
