“Get your ROCK on at Headwaters”

Description
Built on a peninsula that is surrounded on three sides by the Yadkin River, Headwaters is the most technically challenging trail at Kerr Scott.

The quickest way to get out to Headwaters is to park at the back parking area off of Boomer Ferguson School Road, and take the Warrior Creek Loop (clockwise). Soon, there will be a connector trail between two of the campgrounds that will shorten the route by a couple miles.

Headwaters is designed to ride one-way because of its challenging rocky sections that include chutes, boulders, and stacked slabs. The trail also has a nice mix of drops, berms, and jumps to tie it all together.

When designing Headwaters, BMCC sniffed out the most rugged areas for an advanced trail, and during construction, rock was hauled in where there wasn't any. As a result, alternate lines are more difficult than the main line in many cases.

It's worth taking it slow the first time through to scout it out, but it may prove tough to clean even on your second pass. The best part is that more is on the way. Plans are underway to develop more unique trail in the Headwaters area.
