The trail is great for beginners but might be boring for some experienced riders as there are no jumps or drops and no berms to keep your speed going. The trail is always having new things added but is not maintained that well and used to have poor irrigation but that problem has been solved and there are a few muddy spots after a rainy day but the over all condition is good.

Very enjoyable trails for the whole family. Mostly shaded and fun to look for the different rocks. Really enjoyed the Enchanted Forest Trail section. Really beautiful.

This area is a hidden gem here in the Charlotte area. Very awesome for families and interactive (i.e. bring and move painted rocks). Highly recommend!!!
