Trail Description
About this trail
Great single track. Very narrow in sections. Has just about everything. Trail is 6.5 miles long. Not many climbs, but was a great trail overall. Kudos to the TTB for keeping it up. Be aware of the loose sand, and ride it more than once to learn where the jumps are located.

Review: Trail had good flow and we'll marked. I did not ride the green trail. The blue trail was pretty good. It had a lot of rooted technical sections. The black trail was nice. I was able to challenge myself with thi go I have not tried before. Great use of the limited space. My only gripe Is there were so many unmarked trails branching off it got confusing at times. It was worth the hour trip up.

Review: This trail is a blast! Lots of little kickers and a few small drops on the main trail, and the black Diamond has a few wooden structures that are super fun! Although I wouldn't necessarily rate it black Diamond. Definitely one of my favorite trails in the Charlotte area. Just watch out for joggers and walking traffic

Review: This was A LOT of fun! Did everything but the black diamond today (first time there). Some very smooth sections and some very rooty sections too. There are a number of six-to-twelve inch drop-offs on the beginner loop that my "beginner" girlfriend wouldn't think were "beginner" so be advised!

Review: Being this was my first ever mountain biking experience I have to say it was a blast. I don't have anything to compair the trail to since this was my first ever ride. Expect a few hikers with dogs. Spotted a few large deer. I did notice there is a paved path if you'd like to bring your younger kids for a family day. It's a little confusing of where to go in to and ride. There are a few areas where you can get a little air and get some speed. I plan on making getting some more time in here.

Review: Definitely agree that it's a great place for intermediate riders to get lots of miles in. I don't necessarily agree with the black diamond rating for the difficult loops, but there were some tech sections that were gnarly, so I'll give them that. Great place overall! Lots of people out on the trail too, and nearly all very nice people.

Review: Forts time and it's stayed on the easy/beginner trail as I'm still at that level. Very nice and well maintained. Was a little confused early on as the signage was a bit spotty when some of the higher level trails crossed, but that was only one spot that I had that issue. Overall a nice trail and a place I would return to.

Review: Good overall trail that loops relativity well. Difficulty is not consistent throughout on the Intermediate and Expert Trails. Several slightly annoying technical rocky uphill bits.
