Mountain Biking Itusi @ Lake Norman State Park

Awesome new trail. Textbook version of what IMBA teaches. As far as construction, this has to be the most amazing trail you can find: bridges, crib walls, bench cuts, etc.

As far as riding, it's not technical excpet for the occasional root cluster to bunny hop. There are some short climbs that seem to flow with the terrain that give you a short break. The downhill sections are wide and flow with the shape of the land. There are plenty of whoops to keep it exciting. This trail can be a challenge if you want to ride really fast; really makes you work on technique in corners, switchbacks. Just watch out for the runners (esp. the ones with headphones that can't hear you coming up from behind).
