“The main trail of Tanglewood Park has plenty of berms, log-overs, and TTFs to keep it interesting.”
— Vinnie Connors
This trail starts out by the trailhead parking lot on Campground Road and travels in the counter-clockwise direction. This loop is the most technical and longest trail option of the Tanglewood Park
system. This trail is very XC friendly due to its high speed, flowing layout and lack of elevation change. This trail has similar feel to Sherman Branch in Charlotte because of all the berms and man-made features. The trail is slightly under five miles in total distance and exits right near the entrance at the trailhead parking lot. The Main Loop connects to the Northern Loop
by crossing Campground Road at the trailhead parking lot.
