    Flow, Field, and Technical Loops are all packed with fun features and lots of switch backs! Ballantyne is quickly one of my favorite places to ride! Tech loop has a huge wall ride that is AMAZING!

    First time here. Loved this trail. Even though I lost a retaining nut on my pivot bolt. Nice rolling terrain. Parked by Morrison Family YMCA. Parking was packed due to middle of day kids activities. Took couple minutes to find trail head. Nice berms and bridges. Nothing too crazy or narrow. Pretty easy to find your way. Tailhead is near gravel parking lot. That seems to be a good spot to park and repair station and kiosk is there. Ballantyne District Park @ 9405 Bryant Farms Rd, Charlotte, NC 28277. GPS should bring you right to this park and gravel parking just of Bryant Farms Rd. No major climbing. Good beginner to intermediate trail. Enough to keep it interesting but not crazy.

    This was a great trail that is well maintained. They have some fun parts such as the berms and the couple jumps that are there. I did not rate 5 stars because I wish there were more jumps but overall a very good short trial I take after school. The wooden part is really fun as well.

    Easy, mostly flat 0.9 mile loop with some rolling hills and trail features such as low-bermed turns and a pump section. Trail is new and needs some tires on it to get broken in good. Great place to get a quick workout in.
