Route Taken: Main Loop and Old Blue
Opinions: First time riding this trail for me and I will definitely be back. After reading the reviews I was a bit worried about the roots but it really was not bad at all. As a beginner, I thought that there were no more roots here than North Meck (my home trail). There was a mix of faster flowy sections with some tight technical areas. I thoroughly enjoyed my ride, even though I almost ran over a copperhead. I look forward to trying out some of the more advanced sections/obstacles as my skill progresses.

Opinions: If you're looking for a fast, smooth trail Fisher/Allison Farms isn't it. However, this is an awesome trail system that requires some skill to do completely. Too bad some have given it poor ratings which I expect are due to their skill level. It's a haul from my house in Concord so I don't get there often, but love it when I do.

Route Taken: All of it. Including Allison Farms.
Opinions: To RyanW. I'd recommend when taking your family on a new trail that you pre ride it before hand. The trail nor the volunteers that built it are responsible for your bad experience. Only you are. Maybe reevaluate your parenting techniques and teach your children how to deal with adversity and not coddle them and their emotions. There are plenty of adults and children that ride that trail on a regular basis that have a good time. Maybe take your family back to LNSP or a greenway. It seems to suit you better.

Opinions: Overall, Fisher Farms is a good trail. Not overly technical, but not a walk in the park either. I don't particularly like the flow, to me it doesn't seem like the trail has it. Lots of different sections with a different feel, makes it overall disjointed.

Addison Farms is a bit more technical. Lots of tight uphill corners made by someone who wants the glory days of the 26" wheel back; NOT much fun for 29ers. Only trail I've ever ridden making me wish I had a shorter wheelbase.

Opinions: All trails--very technical but fun trail. I am a beginner and had to walk several sections, especially most of wild hare. It was still a little wet but not bad just more advanced than I've ridden. I tried all obstacles and fell a few times but I will def be back to test myself and see how my skills progress. Slower overall trail but great challenge.

It has plenty of just haven't found it yet. But be my guest to whine and complain about roots and narrow trails that won't allow you to average over 20MPH on the trail.

Opinions: First of all that new section, what the f#%*? Terrible flow lots of good terrain but was not used real well. The whole tail flows poorly. One of those fake deer scared me bad to the point of almost crashing. I'm sticking with other trails like lake Norman state park or white water center.

Opinions: After reading the reviews here, I was expecting a very rough ride on my hardtail, but I was pleasantly surprised! This trail is rooty but not so much that it impacts "fun factor". I'll definitely be riding here often! If you've ridden USNWC's new East loop, THAT is a rooty trail, this is no where close IMO.

The trail is very flowy, starts off with a fun, fast downhill section, has many optional loops, has a number of small drop offs on the blue loops, only a few little jumps, a long fire road type section that allows you to get into some higher gears, and has no extended climbs only a couple very short ones. I would highly recommend you try this trail and form your own opinion about the roots.

Route Taken: Main Loop and all the Blues and Resivour.
Opinions: Starts with a some winding and a nice downhill then a veer left to Old Blue. Veer left from Old Blue onto Thunder Road. Thunder Road is a winding uphill that can get your lungs going. You will reemerge on Old Blue. Old Blue has some technical elements. The short log pile to me is pretty steep and I always seem to hit my front chain ring on it. After a drop off and bridge you return to the Main Loop. Main Loop has a nice downhill and you veer right to the Enchanted Forest. This is a cool little blue section. After reuniting with the Main Loop you will meander through the woods. A rooty uphill section closing with a nice climb finishes the trail.

I have mixed feelings about this trail. It is very rooty. More so than any others I've ridden in the area I think. Roots aren't bad, but I do believe they impede the flow in some areas. I don't think this is a beginer trail. It is maintained very well so I think the admistrator really cares about this trail. Give it a try.

Route Taken: Took the more advanced option at each fork.
Opinions: Very enjoyable ride. Great blend of terrain and pace. Nice transitions from flowy to technical sections. Advanced trails are clearly marked and more difficult obstacles and paths allow plenty of distance for setup and preparation. Nice bridges, log stacks, jumps, and drops - if you're in the mood - or plenty of flow and climb otherwise. Very well maintained, and one of my new favorites in N.C..

Opinions: This trail system is so much fun. Everything from bridges, a big log pile, some jumps, and drops. From tight singletrack to beginner level this trail has it all. I love the roots and obsticles. It is "mountain biking" after all. If I didn't want the roots I'd ride a road bike. Trail difficulty is tricky, if you stick to the green trails it is begginer /mid level. As expected,Once you go to the blue trails the difficulty goes up a little.

Opinions: First time riding Fisher. I really enjoyed it. It's much tighter than I'm used to ( salisbury park ) but I'm seemed to ride it faster. My wife didn't like all the roots, but I wasn't bothered. I attempted one black level ( not the log pile entrance ) and quickly re-thought my decision. I'm not skilled enough yet...." A mans gotta know his limitations ..." Lol

I look forward to riding the advanced areas some day.

Opinions: Really cool layout. Tight sections, open sections, with some good climbs and descents. However the root to distance ratio is really bad. Just my opinion but they need to be covered or taken out. Just way to many to have fun without beating you and yout equipment. With some root thinning my rating would be a 5 on trail rating. That's just my two cents.

Opinions: This trail is in great shape. Even with all of the rain it has been maintained beautifully. I don't know if this is really possible but not only do the downhills have good flow, but the uphills do as well. I didn't find myself working too hard up the hills. The switchbacks were nice and wide and in good shape. The trail is easy to follow, and a great ride. The one expert part is no joke (the one with the warning sign) and if you don't like skinnies, or can't pass the "skinny qualifier" on the way in, skip that section.

Overall great flow and a lot of fun. Wish it was closer to my home.

My 7yr old has a blast on the greens and lower blues. Upper blues provide a lot of uphill with tight and twisty sections. The greens have a lot of fast and flowy sections. The uphill at the end finishes it of nicely. I have the Blue+Green at 4.88mi.

Also a good spot for me and the wife to ride together, the way the blues and black branch off from the green trail, I can do some more technical stuff while she does the green and second blue and we seem to always meet back up in the middle.

Definitely glad I gave it a second chance, now its one of my favorites.

Maybe I'm just tired from riding almost everyday this week, but it seemed like it was a lot of work (climbs and such) and not much payoff. I'm going to give it another go and do the black trails in a few weeks, but so far I still like Sherman better.

Maybe I did not like it due to the trail still being somewhat damp after the rainfall, but I do not like how the trail flows. It is too slow for me. I prefer to ride at Sherman Branch any day over Fisher Farm. I will give it another try in a few weeks and I will make sure there has not been any rain for at least 4 days before hand. I personally just like a faster trail.

Some fun deep rut crossings and blazingly fast hardpacked trails make for some interesting slow down lanes before turns into more difficult sections. 4 miles went by super fast and I had a blast all the way around. I won't biff that section again! I'll revisit Fisher for sure though, I can see the advantage of a full susp. rig on this trail, the speed combined with the suprise roots would make a full susp. rig worth it. My hardtail did fine, but my old school susp. fork bottomed more than once. Tons of fun out there!

These are great trails, with good mix of simple singletrack and tight, twisty obstacles.

For whatever reason, I really enjoyed the last bit of singletrack climbing out to the parking lot. Met some real nice folks on the trail and in the parking lot. Thanks to Davidson and to the trailblazers for a great trail. I'll be back :-)

I will go back when it dries out and give it another run.

The blue trails are a blast, and this entire trail is a deceptively good cardio workout, even if you're an out of shape beginner like me. The trails have dips, man-made obsticles, small jumps, ... I could go on. The only disadvantage is it is out in the middle of no-where and took me ~ 45 minutes to get there from Matthews. I'll be there again soon - it's worth the trip.

The Blackdiamond sections are nothing more than a couple skinnys down ravines and although not too difficult I normally skip these because they just are not fun once you conquer em a couple times. I really hope that more is added to this trail and soon especially if there could be more sections like the entrance section. This is a trail that you can take a beginner and they will have just as much fun as an advanced rider. I take my wife quiet regularly and she loves it even being a complete novice.

I really didn't know what to expect even after reading other reviews on this forum before going out. I didn't know if my lack of riding skills would keep me from enjoying myself (or getting hurt).

And the little log crawl directly out of a tight right is a bear sometimes! Good trail. Nice job building it guys!

Opinions: Great trail. Flowy, fast some nice tech options along the trail. Advanced has some great features with skinnies and cavities. We rode at night, can't wait to get back out for a daytime run. Overall a 3 in difficulty except for the advanced trail I would give that a 5 all well marked as well.

Opinions: Just got to ride this trail for the 1st time sat and I must say, you guys did an outstanding job. I found the trail very enjoyable and built for any skill level. Parts of the trail seem very relaxing riding through open fields and windy single track while other sections offer a more challenging aspect such as the drop-in wooden balance beams on the black diamond sections. The trail is very well marked and easy to find your way through the different skill level sections. I'm more use to riding trails such as Poplar Tent and UNCC but I have to admit not having all the rocks and roots is a nice change of pace. This is one trail I will be riding over and over again. Good work guys !

Opinions: I ride North Meck Park all the time and it can be challenging at times.. Fisher farm is a nice change.. Love the trial. It doesnt give you the opportunity to get lazy. Riding the trail just makes you want to keep going.. Its awesome. I have ridden it 2 times alone and a 3rd time w/ a buddy and thank god I did b/c we encountered a bear on the trail.. It growled and took off and ran away.. We still continued on thru b/c we loved the trail that much.. And even went on a second loop on the intermediate trail a second time. Be careful if you ride alone out there.

Opinions: A really nice trail, with some fast portions and some more technical areas (minor drops and roots). Plenty of elevation and terrain changes to make it interesting. It won't push most riders' technical skills, but is a step above Beatty and N Meck. as an overall quality riding experience in my opinion.

Opinions: Very nice trail overall. Took my girlfriend who is still new to mtb'ing and it was a nice step-up from the easy Beatty loop. She loved it!

One note about the directions -- the right turn to get onto Main St. is now the 2nd light, not the first. There is a new light right after you turn right at the top of the ramp.

Route Taken: Rode all of the options and the black diamond is definately challenging IMHO. The trail is well maintained and offers plenty of variety and slighlty longer ride than N Meck with more terrian also. Was bummed that I missed the lesbians by a couple of days - even the ugly ones....I did notice one ugly chick walking her dog; maybe its a trend?
Opinions: All a few times - about 10 degrees cooler in the lower section which was sweet with all of the July heat. Overall I rate this a 5 since it has plenty of variety on the black diamonds and blues and well maintained.

Route Taken: 2 loops. Main trail, then I tried the expert option on loop 2.
Opinions: Nice little seldom used single track. Well marked, and adaptable to all skill ranges. The expert option was surprisingly tough. The ease of the main trail made me think the expert would be less than. But you'll find technical slow speed obsitcales. Getting through "clean" your first time deserves an ovation. Steep pits with progressivly narrow ballance beams, and techy log sculptures. But back to the main(beginner) trail. My 6yr old made it around with me minus a couple uphills too tough for a single speed mini bmx bike.

P.S. we ran accross a couple naked lesbians laying about 15' off the trail. One had no quams about standing up and facing us fully nude. They weren't good looking or anything...but I couldn't end this review without that story!!

Route Taken: All of them.
Opinions: Not a bad trail. I really enjoyed the downhill that dropped into the main valley from the parking lot. I got turned around and was unable to find my way out without asking another rider for directions. I opted for a few of the expert level options and wasn't disappointed.

Opinions: Great trail. Myself and my 10 year old twin sons had a great time. The nice thing now is that the trail is marked nicely and much eaiser to navagate. Thanks for the trail guys.

Opinions: Short and fun. Took advice and went backwards on front loop. Rocks and cross section are my favorite. Close to Popular Tesnt and North Meck. Nice trail to mix things up a bit.

Opinions: I'm just getting back into mtn biking after about 8 years. I had a lot of fun on this trail. It was a little more challenging than N. Meck park. I liked the rock drop and the small bridges. It has a lot of potential and I can't wait until the expansion. I like the fast sections in the fields and right at the beginning of the trail the most. The THTB have done a great job with this place so far. It's nice to have this many trails to choose from.
