Mountain Biking Huntersville Athletic Park

**   Add a review
#279 of 544 mountain bike trails in North Carolina
#7,393 in the world

Moderate neighborhood trail, managed by Huntersville Parks & Rec division, which uses the woods surrounding athletic fields of Huntersville Park. Trail begins as an out-and-back which opens into a small network of interconnected trails. Trail marked by red arrow trailblazes. Several bridges, small ravines, climbs, and some rooty sections. This trail had not been ridden in a couple of years. Last entry was 2018. A lot of work has been done to create an alternative to NMP while it is under construction. It is now about 1.5 miles.

Rider questions

Q: We just tried to go on it but there is nowhere to go. Where is it?
A: Trail starts by the trash dumpsters to the right of the entrance. It runs through the woods and then opens up by the truck training center. Head towards the woods and take a right past the guardrail to continue the lap. It runs along the recycling center with a "flowy" section and then a bridge across the creek. The next section is a loop that has some rooty climbs, some quick down hills and a fun jaunt through the ravines. The trail then doubles back on itself across the bridge and back to the start. More work is being done to make it a full loop.

    Trail was fun ride but too short. Some contruction going on which cut the trail off in a couple of spots so it was hard to follow in those spots.

    The best part of this Parks & Rec maintained trail are the great "MTB Trail" signs at the trailhead! The trailhead misleads the rider that there is actually a managed trail out there. This trail could be a good one - similar to nearby N. Meck Park. There are some decent hills, shallow ravines to dip into, and bridges throughout the trail...a couple being over a small stream. The trail is currently covered with debris(leaves, pine needles, sticks) and there are several trees down across the trail in sections. There is also a new road being developed on the south side of the park which cuts through the current trail. This trail has good potential with available land to use and some fun variable terrain which would be fun for novice-intermediate riders. The new road could be traversed as was done at the Francis Beatty Park trail. The greatest concern here is Huntersville Parks & Rec needs to decide to either develop/maintain this trail OR close the trail and remove the trailhead signs. To leave those signs out there and not arrange for safe maintainance of the trail is a danger to riders and also conveys a negative message of what a "posted" mountain bike trail should be.
