  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.

    For the best of Sherman, try the shorter Roller Coaster loop.

    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.
