Love!

little bit confusing but nice trail.

Not very hard, it is along the creek, very nice.

A nice section of the US National Whitewater Center near the Catawba River...overall it is a great place for all kinds of outdoor activities (rafting, kayaking, adventure courses/canopy tours, zip lining, rock wall climbing, mountain biking and hiking...with sixteen trails in all). There is a $5 day or $40 annual parking fee that lets you explore the facility and trails. There are passes for different activities and also season passes if you plan multiple return visits.

A wonderful place for all kinds of outdoor activities...rafting, kayaking, adventure courses/canopy tours, zip lining, rock wall climbing, mountain biking and hiking to name a few. There are sixteen trails in all. I combined parts of eight for an 8.1 mile track back in June (with one other trail completed later). It made for a fun and strenuous hike.

Good for cycling, jogging, walking. No baby strollers.
