The newest trail in the WWC system that is a good mix of punchy climbs, flowing downhill, and tech.

Description

The Academy Trail starts off of Hawfield Rd. and WWC Parkway at the entrance to the overflow parking lot. The trail starts with a short climb followed by a half-mile descent and then crosses a creek over a huge wooden ladder bridge. The trail climbs for a half-mile to the back of the adjacent school property by the ball fields then sharply descends for one-tenth of a mile.

The trail comes out to the clearing under the power lines and connects with the Carolina Thread Trail for one-tenth of a mile before branching off to the left and heading back up the hill under the power lines. The trail ascends for another six-tenths of a mile before a quick tenth of a mile descent that takes you back out to Hawfield Rd.
