Trail Description
About this trail
Currently 4 miles(Phase II) of tight twisty single track broken up with a few field climbs and some added optional challanges: some nice sweeper turns, water-bars, rock gardens, bridges, and a rock drop-in.

Follow the red arrow blazes with the Tarheel Trailblazer logo for the recommended route throughout the trail.

Trail turf is mixture of clay and light dirt/sand mix, pretty well packed. Appears to dry very well, but hold off for 24hrs after a rainfall. Trail is maintained by the Tarheel Trailblazers. With the completion of Phase I in Spring 2005, f**ing of Phase II will begin. Construction will start in Fall '05 on Phase II and will add 3-4 miles of trail, making for a total length of almost 6 miles.

Review: Fun trail, lots of optional lines with techy spots. This trail is very well marked. Some of the climbs are punchy with tight switchbacks. Overall fun trail. Will be back

Review: Allison Farm segment adds a little extra mileage(maybe 1.5mi?) - that is a twisty tight section that makes good use of a wooded hillside descent to a creekbed...many quick ups, but no major climbs.
The older sections at Fisher Farm have really suffered from erosion, significant root exposure and the transitions to many constructed features have become very rough. Many of the "expert" obstacles I used to ride through with no problem I am now walking through...and I almost endo'd 2 or 3 times because the obstacles are so inconsistent, just not as fun anymore.
I have volunteered for trailwork here before and would again if some of the work is devoted to bringing the obstacles back to what they were ( not 'dumbing' tgem down, just rideable).

Review: There are so many varied features and optional loops here that it never gets old. Skinnies, drops, ladder bridges, log piles, rocks, and yes roots; all add up to one heck of a trail.

Review: This is a great mountain bike trail for all levels of riders! Fisher Farms has a great mixture of man made obstacles and roots which makes for a challenging/ fun ride. The tarheel trailblazers definitely do an excellent job of keeping it in good shape.

Review: If you like roots...this is your trail! Lots of roots and logs to jump, or bounce over. It's a fairly tight path, with no berms in the corners.

Review: Great trail!! The Trailblazers did an awesome job on this one!! I am "new" to mountain biking and this is the third trail I have been on and it is by far my new favorite. It's long, definitely has some technical parts with obstacles thrown in, VERY rooty, and definitely has some long drawn out parts to gain some GOOD speed!! It probably has the lowest elevation with the "easiest" climbs that I have been on so far too. It didn't totally kick my ass like Big Leaf Slopes did. The "Enchanted Forest" part of the trail was really cool too. If you hit Fisher Farm, just be aware of the roots. They are definitely in number and some of them are big. I didn't mind it, all part of the ride. This trail is also VERY well marked and laid out. The signs are in place to guide you to the different parts/areas of the trail. There are beginner, intermediate, and black diamond areas of this trail. I stuck to the beginner/intermediate areas. All in all, I had a great time for my first time at Fisher Farm and I will definitely be returning for another go at it!

Review: I love fisher farm! It's my go to morning ride. Yes it has roots (you are in the woods). This trail has some great tight sections some great fast sections fun obstacles. This is a great trail that really makes you focus on your line choice. I'm normally here in the AM I have done some afternoon rides but this trail never really seems to have a bunch of people on the trails all at one time. Enjoy the ride and have a great time!

Review: Not a beginner trail if you want to go fast. I know because I'm a beginner. It is challenging but very fun. I had to try several sections a second time and still couldn't get them right. Lnsp, uswwc and north Meck are easy compared to Farmers but the challenge is why I'll return here for sure. Def. recommend

Review: This is not a beginner trail. Do not go here thinking it is a beginner trail. This is definitely on the more advanced side of the intermediate spectrum, especially for a trail so close to the city. The trail is typical of most charlotte trails in that it has many roots. I like that the trail offers optional challenges and trails to test your mettle on when you feel like you have mastered the easier trails. There are other trails around that offer more flow and more technical sections, but this is a good mix of everything. My only gripe is that the green trail really should be rated blue. The hardest switchback in the entire ride (and one of the hardest sections of the entire trail if you include the rocky climb right after it) is on the green loop. Overall a good trail with good people maintaining it. There are supposed to be new sections coming soon, so keep an eye out for that.

For easier trails head to LNSP, north meck, USNWC, and other trails in the area.

Review: Very tight and flowly single track, has a decent amount of roots, the black diamond trails have a lot of rollers and small jumps in between the tight switchbacks. The rest of the trails are rated blue and are a blast. Not a lot of technical sections, great for beginners/intermediate riders! Wish it was longer
