Trail Reviews

Date Ridden: 11/06/2016  -  Keith of Charlotte, Nc
Route Taken: Super tree trail (counterclockwise) to the Keyauwee trail (counterclockwise).
Opinions: I'm a relatively new mountain biker and I enjoy faster smooth trails like super tree. Some of the sections of this trail are really fast and fun (to me.) The other side Keyauwee trail is very different. Some fast up and down sections. Lots of rocks. Lots of climbs in 1st gear. Overall awesome ride. Both sections were just over 13 miles. If you hate faster smoother trails, don't do Supertree. If you like them, then it's a nice trail. It's kinda that simple. Happy riding!

Route Taken: Supertree CW from Keyauwee
Opinions: Thanks to Ed Sutton for the great work on Supertree. I hadn't ridden at Uwharrie since Nov '15, so what a surprise this re built trail was! Super fas and flowing CW.Suppertree can easily be ridden now with a cross bike including the singletrack.

Opinions: Supertree has been reworked by Ed Sutton/Trail Dynamics...I've ridden the new Supertree twice. It looks like Ed Sutton's group re-worked Supertree from the intersection at Woodrun Hunt Camp to the "end" of Supertree way out on Woodrun road....that's all of Supertree not counting Woodrun road. They added 4 short single track sections...one of those was partially done 4 years ago....they finished it. The fire road sections remain but all of the rutty and muddy sections have had drains added or gravel. I understand that the project used 64 tons of gravel....that's 4 truck loads. The construction includes numerous humps or "rolling grade dips". Eds team cleared all limbs and logs from the trail. It was a great job. I hope he comes back a lot.

Route Taken: Woodrun pkg lot to TH; Supertree C C/W
Opinions: Combination of fire roads and singletrack. No roots... a nice break from Charlotte trails. Not the most exciting ride, but constantly climbs and drops so it is a nice warmup for Keyauwee.

Route Taken: Tom of Kannapolis wrote this describing what we call Whitetail. "Supertree clockwise from the Woodrun Camp. Up the FS road to the junction and Right to Supertree. About 1 mile up is a single track that bisects the old Super tree loop. Take this for some fast fun cruising. THere is a couple climbs. Comes out at the bottom on the road and take a right about 1/2 mile back to the camp." http://www.sorbauwharrie.org/trails.cfm is the link to a map showing the location of Whitetail. It's a short cut through from one side of Supertree to the other
Opinions: Very nice overgrown fireroad that was converted into singletrack. It has so far escaped the "fireroad upgrades" in the area.

Opinions: THis is a fairly new section of singletrack. It has rocks and berms. The single trak here drains very well and is rideable when most everything in the area is closed. The old Supertree runs into logging road much further up. THis new section is fun.

Route Taken: Counter C/Wise Supertree to Keyauwee.
Opinions: Supertree c-c/wise is boring and mostly just fireroad...next time will try clockwise and see if the other reviews are correct. Keyauwee = best trail near Charlotte...Awesome payoff, but prepare for a tough ride and some sore legs. But dont bother riding Supertree Counter Clockwise unless you like boring gravel fireroads...

Route Taken: Wood Run Road to second entrance of Supertree Loop, rode Supertree clockwise
Opinions: If you dont like gravel, this trail is not for you. 70% gravel fire roads with 30% of decent singletrack. A decent workout, but not very exciting. The variety of good singletrack around Charlotte and Lake Norman is better.

Route Taken: Started on Keyauwee (clockwise) and continued on Supertree (clockwise)
Opinions: SUPER...super fast, super fun, super smooth. Not a lot of roots and rocks. Not too technical, an overall great ride (exact opposite of Keyauwee)

Route Taken: From the woodrun parking lot take the fire road to woodrun camp. Bear right onto Supertree or take a left and hit Keyauwee first. Follow the loop through and you'll be grinning from ear to ear :)
Opinions: Its National Forest riding. Its awsome - not sure why there are not more posts here. It has alot of variety, distance, good elevation and some sweet descents! More is to come as new trails in the forest get approved! Where else can you go to ride in a National Forest that is less than an hour from Charlotte :)

Route Taken: Counterclockwise, riding Supertree and Keyauwee as one loop.
Opinions: Thanks to Frank and the Tarheel Trailblazer plus others, this trail is much improved. The twenty worst mudholes or bogs were drained or repaired. As of today, conditions are excellent. There are two trees down on Keyauwee, advance riders can ride over or bunny hop these obstacles. Supertree is ok...fast and dry. For more information visit www.rideumba.com

Route Taken: From trail head at road, head up double track logging road to camp grounds, on right pass by gate continuing up double track. Hill climbing starts a little hear, but trailbed itself is good for adventerous (but good shape)beginners. Trail continues right at sign, and stays double track for another 1-2 miles. Last 3-4 miles are smooth, fast, mostly downhill, singletrack, with one or two decent uphills, and a small river crossing.
Opinions: This trail is a great trail. Just don't expect technical, rooty, log pyramid, drop off from hell riding. If your wanting to take that new girl you just met on a ride in the country, or get a decent leg workout (note the climbs, and do it twice), this is the trail for you.

Route Taken: Supertree Loop a never ending gravel road with great single track in the middle.
Opinions: I was highly disappointed in this trail. I had no idea that it would be 70% gravel road and only 1.5 miles of trail.
