If any of you guys in WNC make frequent or infrequent trips to the Lenoir/Hickory area or even down to Charlotte/Statesville there is a great little trail you need to check out.

I had to go to Charlotte this weekend and had time for a couple hour ride on the way down. The trails are amazing with super flowy sections, alot of optional jumps, skinnies, etc. Fun, punchy climbs and a jump line as well with big tables, gaps, and nice pump track.

Its well signed and easy to access off of I-40 or NC-321.

Big props to the Northwest North Carolina Mountain Bike Alliance and those involved building this trail. I'm sorta jealous we dont have something like this in WNC.

Its definitely worth checking out if you are in the area or as a place to stretch the legs on a road trip.
