A short 2.5 mile loop with decent flow and a lot of potential in the heart of Charlotte.

Description

Southwest District Park is a short loop that is intended to be ridden in the CCW direction. The start of the trail is to the right of the trail kiosk on the left side of the parking area. There is a wooden bridge that spans a creek that has an optional creek crossing on the left shortly after you enter. After about 1/4 of a mile the trail splits. Take the right branch to ride in the counter-clockwise direction, although this trail is decent in both directions.

There are a few log overs and one challenging log skinny but other than that it is mostly a beginner friendly trail. The counter-clockwise direction has two flowing downhill sections and the clockwise direction has one good downhill section near the end. The terrain is similar to BYT / Marion Diehl but with less elevation change. This trail is fairly new and does not see much traffic, it could be a pretty great ride with some added berms and trail work.

I just rode this trail today. Was one of three on the Tarheel Trailblazers site listed as open the next day after rain. The Log Skinny pictured above wasn’t there. Probably replaced by a long man made obstacle that was similar. This trail has had extensive work since the description. Several man made bridges and two or three obstacles, too.There is also a 0.5 mile loop that has been added. Had I know I would have taken several pics and done a trail update. Will plan to do so next time I’m there. This is a great ride centrally located for someone who wants to get a quick ride in for the day. Feb 5, 2018
