  2. The ultra-fast and flowy multi-use trail system at Lake Norman State Park is also among the longest in the area. Without few technical features and plenty of long run-ups, the 30 miles of trail are a great run for getting speed.

    The longest run, the nine mile Laurel Loop also has some of the steepest climbs. Stick to the northern trails for shorter, quicker runs.

  4. Approximatly eight miles of singletrack loop through the historic grounds of the Anne Springs Close Greenway. The moderate trails flow fairly well with some rooty and rocky sections plus a few bridges to keep things interesting.

    For the best of Sherman, try the shorter Roller Coaster loop.
  7. The single track at Fisher Farms packs plenty of tricks up its five-mile sleeve. Tight and tree covered, this medium technical trail is a great step up for intermediate riders.

    The trail system grows every year. There are currently more than 20 miles
  10. Eight miles of ill-mannered singletrack crammed with skinnies, jumps, rock legdges, and tight, twisty turns. The Backyard Trail is not for the faint of heart of weak of leg.
