LNSP: Phase III Overview

Lake Norman State Park's Phase III will be a separate loop that should be in the 4-5 mile range. Total LNSP mountain bike trail mileage will increase to approximately 11 - 12 miles.

The loop will begin where Phase I crosses the road as it heads back to the parking lot (near the end of the loop). We will cross the car bridge to the right of the crossing. We will then head right into a large wooded area.

Part of the area is visible across the marshy area towards the end of Phase II. If you were to look out to your right as you climb the bench cut towards the "back" of Phase II you can see a large bluff that will be one of the boundaries of Phase III.

It will be interesting since there are 3 or 4 large dry gullies to work around. Bob Karriker has been working hard on the layout.

It sounds like the state has tightened up the requirements for bridges and culverts which will make life even more difficult.

We hope to be inspected in mid-October and begin construction in the first part of November. Stay tuned for details.
