Indian Trail Power Trail

Average Rating:    (3.33 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 3

Once you have crossed the creek bed, turn right and ride a rollercoaster power easement with jumps, and many natural options. About 1/2 way through you hear a noise. It dead ends at a pump house, you can venture on or turn around and go to the other end passing your point of entry for about 5 miles of total ride. Lots of hills, water and jump options along the way. Several side tracks along the way, but that may be private property... does not hurt to try.

Trail Directions
Take 485 to the Matthews exit. (Depends on which way you come) Go 4 miles towards Monroe on Old Monroe Road, (away from Matthews). Go 4 miles and enter the Brandon Oaks Subdivision. Go down Brandon Oaks Parkway and park at the Pool Clubhouse parking. Ride your bike less than 1/2 mile on asphalt to the dead end, go past the dead end about 30 yards then turn left and go another 30 yards or so and look for a path / creekbed on your right. Carry your bike just over the man made ditch and begin your ride over a 2-4" creekbed with water.

Summary:
Great beginner/intermediate ride. Much better in dry conditions. Has a tendency to get sloppy. The area is growing with development and the scenery and trails change every weekend. Rode today 1/13/2002 and it's messy. Send me an email when you want to check the condidtions. I live a half mile from the trailhead. Always updated on it's condiditon. Later and happy trails..........

Recommended Route:
I485 to exit 52. head south on old charlotte hwy for 6 miles and make a right on wesley chapel stouts road (at the Texaco station) go a half mile and park at sun valley middle school. Ride across the street into Holly Park and numerous trails to follow near the back. Just look for the powerline and hit a trail.

Summary:
Did my first over the hadle bars today on one of the steep downhills, rolled about 12 feet and knocked the breath out of myself... that was fun! This is a great little track to practice that wieght balancing. Email me, I'll be glad to take you on the trip up to 6 miles. (Maybe you can give me some balance tips)

Recommended Route:
Ok I have now ridden this thing 4 times. IF you do come in from the Brandon Oaks side, go right 1.2-2 miles as described above, as you turn to go back, follow the clay road (with bumps, jumps, etc) all the way back towards Sun Valley High School.
