Review: Good trail, be careful after a rain, I have found that there is quite a bit of shade which will make the trail/bridges slick. You can move pretty nicely thru the trail but also has some technical sections.

Review: May morning, 60s, overcast -- honeysuckle, briar blooms, and, in the low spots, lake scent of fish spawn. Lovely trail for the soft feel of air by the ears, flat and clear and lightly rolling. Be friendly to the walkers and pat the dogs. Take a romantic hope uninterested in bikes: she'll enjoy it and maybe you can build a relationship. A word: the rider in the picture is not likely on this trail.

Review: Nice little there-and-back run in Belmont, very close to the Stowe Botanical Gardens. Trail is very well-traveled and for the most part flat without much change in elevation. There are no technical features to speak of if you don't count roots and saplings close enough to high-five as you ride by. You'll do a small incline here there and there but it's nothing serious at all. There are some good spongy switchbacks and a few spots where you can really grind a turn if you get a head of steam, however anyone who goes to this trail should know that when I was there, it was crowded and the path ain't real wide. Around ten-thirty on a Sunday I passed one other biker and four separate groups of hikers, many with kids. Bearing that in mind, while there are leaves on the trees the visibility is not fantastic and really opening up back there is a Bad Idea.

All gripes aside, the scenery is cool. The trail runs right along the edge of Lake Wylie and you'll come to a few vistas that are well-worth the trip.

Highly recommended if you're looking for a laid-back cruise by the lake.

Review: Great recovery trail, flows rather nicely once your beside the lake, a few jumps if u mash hard. Can easily carry to much speed in any turn (no berms) best beginner trail ever if you know your limits. With no leaves on tress yet u can see 75ft ahead. However People with families walk/run both ways & mostly yield to MTBs but it's posted that MTBs yield to pedestrians. Parking for 14 so if lots full beware & be careful sometimes there's kids out there.
