I parked in the parking lot closest to the highway and took the service road to start my ride. Wood Run trail is on the right after about 1/4 mile. There is signage.
Wood Run ends in another parking lot for the entrances of Supertree and Keyauwee.
I started with Supertree (it is to the right). I rode for about 1/2 mile and looked for a trail to the left. (White Tail) It won't be marked, but it is certainly worth the turn. You'll know you're on the right trail when you encounter a few "bike" bridges shortly after entering the trail. After about a mile or so, you'll intersect Supertree. Take a right and finish Supertree - about another 4 miles. You'll end up back in the parking lot.
From there, I headed into Keyauwee (to the left) and started that loop. At the "top" of the loop, you can either continue on Supertree or take the Wood Run Road (it is a service road) and end up back in the upper parking lot. I then took the service road back to the parking lot closest to the highway. Total mileage was 15 or so. It was hot and the service road was a good cool down.
Wood Run Trail was nothing special, but a great warm up after being in the car for an hour. I recommend.
Supertree was a lot of fun. Once you finish the tight single track climb and decent of White Tail, it is mostly all downhill. (Clockwise)
Keyauwee is rocky and a lot of climbing. Not tough climbing, but a lot of it. The downhills are more technical than Supertree. There are a lot of rocks and some interesting switchbacks. I would not consider this a beginner trail. (Supertree is more on the beginner side)
All and all, this was a great option to Charlotte trails. You get a little bit of everything; uphills, rocks, decent descents and well groomed trails.
If I had to do it again, I would have started with Keyauwee and continued on Supertree for a big clockwise loop.
