Description

Middle Third now starts off of the Sugar Creek Greenway as of the start of 2018 but still can be accessed from Farmbrook Rd. like before. This section of trail is probably the most fun and technical offering in the Charlotte area. The Tech Loop can no longer be accessed from across the Service Street like before since it only connects to the Sugar Creek Greenway now.

This trail still has the OG jump line as well as the new Bumblebee Dirt Jumps if you are into defying gravity on your bicycle. Many thanks to Paul, Josh, Scott and all the other Tarheel Trail that helped constructing the new jump lines at the Bumblebee Dirt Jumps.
