Trail shared by Logan Watts

A fun, fast and flowy 6 mile loop through the Lake Norman State Park.

Features -none-

This trail is reversed every year -- Clockwise on even years and counter-clockwise on odd years.

Description

Monbo is fantastic in both directions (although a lot of folks prefer it clockwise -- on even years). The trail dips and turns through the forest to create a winding and flowy singletrack favorite that can be ridden 2-3 times back to back and still keep you grinning.

From the trailhead at the parking lot, follow the bi-directional connector to the rod and take a left. After crossing the lake bridge, the trailhead will be on your right.
