Great endurance trail for running in the shade on a scorching hot day. Also a tremendous leg workout with all of the drop offs downhill when your legs are fatigued.

Good trail only reason I am giving 4 stars is the back section by the lake is not that well marked. Got lost trying to figure out the trail back there. Just needs more markings or signs. Fast trail not much traffic at least when I was there.

Fun fast intermediate trail, and good challenging beginner trail. Great ride without having to travel to the mountains.

good trail for beginners looking to build technical skills and fun fast intermediate ride.

Excellent trail. Several options mid trail as well as dozens of jumps. Highly recommended!

Pretty and very well-maintained. It can get somewhat crowded on pretty days.

Well-maintained trails thanks to volunteers. Little easy to get turned around at the Forks and find yourself making against the flow. Nice mix of cruising trails and some technical pieces.

Good Hike was great with The Family

The path being maintained now is different than the one shown here, so while you can still find the old path, it would be better to attempt to follow a more recent recording. And even then it's so easy to get off track that trail running was ridiculous, always stopping to see if I'm still going the right way.

Very easy which is why I can’t bring myself to call what we did hiking. Not much to see along the way. Very poorly marked. Great for beginners, small kids but don’t expect to be wowed.

Nice greenway rolling hill stretch through the wooded neighborhood.

Had a great time. A little more for MTB but still a good workout.

One of my favorite places to hike in Charlotte. You have to watch out for mountain bikers, but they have signs that encourage the walkers to go one way and then bikers opposite direction so you can see them coming. And if it’s getting too long, lots of switchbacks that you can cut across.

Not the greatest/most scenic trail in the area but never that busy and always plenty of parking. A lot of room to run and great when you don’t want to have to drive far or battle Uptown traffic.

Great trial with optional loops like the rollercoaster and lake loops.

Great trail to run, very technical so be ready for a challenge. Just make sure to run/hike the opposite direction of the bikers and you shouldn't have any issue seeing each other. Taking all of the black diamond bike routes should put out a distance just over 4 miles.

Good track to ride only during light traffic times. Sunday’s have heavy walking traffic.

Everything has been burned down so not pretty at all. Stay on rocks there is not a loop as shown. Will not go back.

This isn’t quite accurate. There are numerous trails to explore. It totals over 10 miles of fresh tracks. As far as difficulty is concerned, there are parts that are very challenging. I highly recommend it for intermediate trail runners!

Dusted off the old Giant and took her for a spin. First time in a looong time mountain biking for me and thought there was plenty of good trail for all skill levels. Will probably go back again soon

Meh it’s nice for a quick walk

Part of the Whitewater Center, bring $5 for parking. Multiple routes and trails in the area. Weekends are busier, but only saw a handful of others on trail. Great dog route choices for active dogs

Mix of paved and gravel, you can get up to 17 miles by combining connecting trails.
