Description

This ride starts off Herrons Ferry Road near a kayak launch beside the Catawba river on the Piedmont Medical Center Trail. After a mile on the greenway, the ride turns right and continues with a lap of the Riverwalk Blue Loop followed by a lap of the Riverwalk Green Loop, and concludes with a modified green loop that includes the extremely fast downhill section of the Green Loop Access Road and a three mile cool-down on the way back to the parking lot on the Piedmont Medical Center Trail.

This trail has some challenging climbs and is extremely rooty, but the downhill sections are mostly off camber and there are very few berms to keep your speed, so flow is a bit lacking. 95% of the trail's singletrack resides on the Riverwalk Blue Loop. The trail is fairly new and needs much more traffic to break her in but definitely has potential with a little trail work.

This trail system is a pretty good ride that anyone can do. It is challenging enough to keep it interesting but just not quite long enough. Fun time for all. Jun 5, 2014
