Q: Is this a good trail for begginers? -Guest

A: It is definitely the easiest intermediate trail in the charlotte area I would say. It is a step up from the green trails at lake norman (monbo, hawk, etc). It is slightly more challenging than the lake loop at white water center. There are a couple rock gardens/technical features that may present a challenge to beginners.

Q: Iv heard there is poison ivy on this trail in the summers is that true? -Daniel Lee Dault Jr.

A: Yes, there is lots of poison ivy, however, I've ridden it extensively during the summer months and have never had any problem with it. Just stay aware when you pull off the trail.

Review: This trail is a very flowy and fast. There are plenty of features, natural and built to keep things interesting. Somehow the trail builders were able to keep you in the "sweet spot" of the Main Loop so as to make it feel like you were always pointed downhill. I highly recommend this trails system.

Review: This trail has a great mix. Short moderate climbs, short down hills, Switchbacks, small jumps, and berms. There are a few obstacles that are not to crazy (not sure why they are diamond). You can ride around them if you are not comfortable riding them. One way traffic. May run into a few hikers with dogs.

Review: Not very hard but not too easy, just a whole lot of fun! There's no real climbing and a lot of fast, flowy sections with some jumps, small drops, and a few wooden obstacles thrown in. Not to say that it's all fast and smooth. There are plenty of rooty areas and some fun little rock gardens as well. All in all, Sherman is a very well laid out and maintained trail that is tame enough for a beginner yet still has something to offer a more seasoned rider.

Review: Good trail, need to sweat to do all 11 miles. Mostly its intermediate with few black areas and some jumps. It's not for beginner (unless you rally confident with a bike) Had plenty of fun with my ~300$ hard trail :)

Review: Not the most technical, not the easiest, but probably the best trail in the Charlotte area. Tons of traffic of all skill levels on the weekends.
Take it easy if it's your first time.

Review: Sherman is a great trail. The main loop crosses the emergency road several times, making it easy to bale out early, if needed.
