Description

North Main Trail is mainly two climbs and three speedy descents (20mph+) as it weaves along the Catawba River. You enter the trail along the back side of the whitewater channel into a rocky descent (watch out for hikers). At the bottom of the entry hill go straight to connect to Figure 8 and Carolina Thread or make a left to continue onto North Main. This trail connects with the South Main Trail just past a flatwater access dock on the Catawba River. This trail was newly updated in 2014. They added two new sections and rerouted the end of the trail a bit.

Lots of climbing and not a lot of reward. Pine straw and roots. Hard to go fast. No jumps. 3.3mi
