I had a great time on this trail. There was a variety of terrains and obsticals that would keep anyone entertained. At the beginning of the trail were hilly runs with switchbacks. Later in the trail were a few manmade obsticals like a see-saw, a log bridge, and a 3-foot wheelie-drop. The third part of the trail features a line-up of four or five whoop-de-doos. This is a not a great trail for honing technical skills, but it IS a great trail for having a lot of fun!

Summary:
This trail has gotten better very quickly over the past year. The crew has dramatically improved the drainage of this otherwise fun trail. The new features are sturdy and fun although I've not gotten the guts to do them all as yet. The flow is great for a compact area with a great variety of terrain packed into the design. If you haven't been there in a while definitely check it out. Also disc golf back nine surrounds the trail with dangerous interaction unlikely.

Recommended Route:
Gravel lot at trailhead, one enterence, follow arrows, do the whole thing including circuit city (counterclockwise).

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Lake Norman, Poston, USNWC

Summary:
About 9 months ago their was intrest in maintaining this trail. But, like many old trails, newer trails have taken their place. This trail is city owned, but they only do upkeep if provoked to do so. Bike shop used to have a weekly ride, but I think they moved it to Lake Norman State Park. It was a fairly good trail.

Summary:
Since moving to Statesville, I have been alternating between this trail and the one at Lk Norman State Park. From what I gather, this is built on a landfill. So the vegetation makes it look a little run Down. It also cicles the Statesville Park and Rec Maintenace area. Seeing it is a city park,you would think they would mow the lawn on a more regular basis. But I see the workers at the soccor field during girls soccar games or at Bo Jangles,more then I see them working. But the trail has new signs thanks to the new disc golf course that weaves through. The trail is a little over 4 miles in length. I cut out a mile,because I've picked up a couple of ticks in the tall grass by the water treatment plant. The trails has the same charecteristicks as the Fisher Farm trail down the road in Davidson(although regular riders of that would tend to disagree. A lot of roots rocks,small log jumps,1/2 foot drop offs. It's a trailt that keeps you pedeling. A good aerobic workout. The more I ride it ,the more I like it. Great after work ride with many watering holes nearby to grap a cold one afterwards

Other recommended trails in the same area:
LNSP Monbo trail,Overmoutain Victory Trail,Dark Mountain Trail,HoBBy Park, Riverview, Uwarrrie, Bent Creek

Summary:
Rode this trail today while up at my parents for Thanksgiving. Looks like I am the only one to have ridden it in the last 2 or 3 months. Really overgrown and no maintenance at all. Shame it has a lot of potential. All trails are overgrown with grass and thorns. Pretty soggy too.

Summary:
I rode this trail in July 2004 and I hated it. It is in dire need of some maintenance. There are trees and weeds growing across the trail, making it difficult to navigate. It appears as if it was once a great ride, but not this season. At one part of the trail, there were weeds with thorns growing across the trail, causing me to end the ride with 2 flat tires (slow leaks). Save yourself the headache and go ride the Itusi trail on Lake Norman instead.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Itusi, Renaissance Park, North Mecklenburg Park
