Summary:
This trail is listed as Signal Hill in trail guides (see list above). This trail was really enjoyable and had lots of opportunity for speed. It wasn't overly technical, but had a variety of challenges, including a few steep climbs, several man-made obsticals and a long straightaway with some whoop-de-doos. I'd recommend it for riders of all skill levels.

Recommended Route:
From the gravel parking lot, I'd take the path off to the left and travel clockwise.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Beech Springs, Hobby Park

Reviewed by: Morpheus , from Statesville

Summary:
This trail has a few technical spots, a few short drops and a few uphills (nothing big), but there is trash everywhere. The jumps are nominal. There is a wooden ramp built at the bottom of one of the hills, but overall, not that much fun.

Recommended Route:
Follow the gravel road to the trail behind the bleachers near the remote control airplane field.

Summary:
this was a f'n awesome trail that was only 20 minutes from my house. it was a terrain park for mountain bikes. not a huge lung burner, but the physical workout you would get hurling through the gullies and over and around. now the woods are GONE. Thank You Capitalism. there is still the rest of the trail, but it's not even worth and it is by far the closest trail to my house. there was even a jump park, and i figured i could get some miles doing laps and get my adrenalin rush in the bmx park. WRONG. they freakin' took that as well. i don't get it. the woods were CLEAR cut 'cuz some guy was leasing the land and $'s must have come a callin'. the bmx park had nothing to do with that and now that is gone. even though that was by far the closest trail to me in this sprawling city of charlotte, i doubt i'll ever back.

Recommended Route:
either go in by the transformer or go all the way down the gravel road and enter the trail behind the plane guys shack

Summary:
Extremely enjoyable. You can push it hard for a good physical workout or you can just take it easy and enjoy the scenery. Very beautiful ride along a creek. It is a technical trail but still most relaxing. This time of the year with the leaves falling, some portions of the trail were somewhat difficult to identify. Could be better marked but still a trail well made. Lots of trees and shade.

Summary:
This is actually a neat little trail. Not much in the way of marking, but it really gets very little traffic despite being a decent ride. Yeah, it's not a major exertion, but who wants to cough a lung every ride. First part is the twisties. Lots of roots and logs. Then you go through the BMX section (watch those little asphalt buggers). Next is kind of a scenic singletrack climb. Very decent. Finally you go by the transformer and do about another mile or so and you are done. Very unconventional MTB trail but overall a very decent ride.

Recommended Route:
Park in the shopping center and drop in by the dumpsters. (how appropriate)
