Overview

Fisher Farm is built on a moderately sloped hill that goes from the highest point in the north part of the property to the low-lying southern part of the trail. There are not many flat sections of the trail so you are ascending or descending most of the time.

Need to Know

The last option black diamond can be very difficult to ride when wet, since it is a very rooty technical option that zig-zags through a few ravines that hold water after rain.

Description

To access this trail, take the Main Loop on the east side of the parking lot behind the kiosk. Take the left fork and enjoy the incredibly fun downhill section (20mph+) that leads to the first intersection of the ride. Take Old Blue on the left as the Main Loop continues downhill on the right.

After a short climb on Old Blue, another choice awaits. The right option, Old Blue, skips the final climb so stay left on Thunder Road for the longer blue option with an optional black diamond rock garden descent, Rock Rumble, that has a few "safe" lines down it. It's one of the most unique and challenging rock features in the Charlotte area. From this point it's all downhill!

The trail meets back up with Old Blue 1/3 of the way down and with the Main Loop about 2/3 of the way down the hill on fastest part of the trail. Speeds here can exceed 25 mph as you approach a clearing that has a few high speed whoops. As the trail approaches the woods, take the left path which leads to the lower section of the trail.

The lower section is fairly rooty and has two optional sections. At the first intersection of the lower section, stay to the right to take Enchanted Forest after the trail reenters the woods after the downhill section through the clearing.

After Enchanted Forest and the Main Loop converge, an optional log skinny on the left side of trail leads to the most technical, difficult and rooty segment of the trail, Wild Hare. This part of the trail winds through a ravine and can be very difficult to ride clean when wet.

Wild Hare and the Main Loop reunite and continue out of the lower section to the final climb back to the parking lot. Take the left option, Reservoir Loop, for the longer, more technical climb back to the kiosk and the end of the ride. Note that just prior to Reservoir Loop, there is a fairly challenging, sharp switchback and climb over rocks and roots that beginners may find challenging, despite these obstacles being on the main/green loop.
