Major Charlotte Trail!!!

Average Rating:    (2.33 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 3

Its right in front of your faces!!! Just hit the new 485 Outer Loop construction!!! Go on a Sat or Sun or after 6:00PM when all the workers are gone. There are literally 40-50 miles of very rough, very technical terrain for the taking! And there are side trails everywhere! The road is roughly graded in in most places where the future outer-loop will go, especially where it meets major roads, but there are still miles of singletrack that the bulldozers haven't hit yet. This wil only be available to us for a little longer, so make REAL use of your tax dollars...ride what you are paying for!!!!!

Summary:
look out at points the mud is so bad that if u hit it u will sink so make sure u stay aware at the times that there is standing water but this trail is way worth it if u do not like rideing long hills with mud in ur face all the way very very fun must ride

Summary:
Dude, This trail is so damn sweet. IT would make the Pope kick out a stained glass window to ride here.

Hooter girls to the left of me, Mickey Mouse and water rides to the right. Sick drops of 60 feet and the hills are only 3 feet high. The marzocchi show girls wax the bike & stem after an awesome ride beyond compare. I've caught air so high, I could adjust the seat and eat a power bar before landing. Every 5th Saturday, local bike shops provide free lunch and beer. OH WAIT A MOMENT - this trail DOESN'T EXIST - I must be sniffing degreaser again.

Recommended Route:
From New Zealand take a plane to LAX then Charlotte

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Papa Smurf's fantasy romp and the back trail to Stiffler's Mom

Summary:
I have ridden the section from I-77 to Brown Grier road. (It is now paved and open to traffic) It was a blast. Great side trails, technical climbs, remote areas, you name it. I plan to ride more sections when I get a chance.
