    Back yard trail in Charlotte

    Have to spend 3 days in Charlotte and was thinking of taking the bike. In the local bike shop someone mentioned riding the "back yard". Recently moved to Charleston SC and am still looking for fun more technical areas. Not sure if this guy was giving me BS or not. Is this place any good?

    I've been a few times. It's worth it. Trail system is in an old sewage treatment plant area. Miles of trails packed into a small area. You get to ride some interesting features, like the old push cart trestles. Go. It won't disappoint.

    Backyard is definitely challenging though a few miles of trails have been recently lost due to greenway construction. Everyone in charlotte has a different opinion of what the best trails are but my goto trails are BYT, WWC (white water center) and Poston. Like BYT, Poston also has several gap jumps and other challenging features. WWC is where you go if you want miles of flow with some good elevation (for Charlotte at least).
