This is a greenway and not a trail. It's paved or gravel--no dirt. For this reason it can get really hot in the summer compared to a wooded trail because the vast majority of the trail is not shaded. It's an okay trail for getting a feel for your mountain bike if you've never ridden before, but even beginners will be board to death on this trail in my opinion. This is a take your kid on their training wheel bike trail. So for that sort of thing it’s perfect. Or maybe not, given that there is an unbelievable amount of dog poop and duck poop on the trail. Magnitudes more poop than on any other greenway or trail we've ridden in the Charlotte MSA. Never seen a more poopy trail in my life.
