USNWC Trail Reconnect
Representatives of the USNWC, the Trailblazers, Charlotte Sports Cycling, and Liquid Design (the USNWC architectural firm) met Tuesday afternoon (3/14/06) to discuss the trail re-connect at the Whitewater Park (USNWC – formerly Catawba). Several topics were discussed at length and the mood of the meeting was very upbeat and positive.

The group will meet again in the very near future to walk the site and discuss the specifics of the trail construction project. The plan is two-fold: Prepare the park for the start of the Summer Race Series and completion of the reconnect for the opening of the park in June.

There will be plenty of work to go around and we will be contacting Boy Scout Troops concerning possible Eagle Projects. Worker Bees needn’t be active Trailblazer members (although we would encourage your membership) they just need to be willing and able to feel a piece of ownership of the trail system at the USNWC.

A group of Trailblazers have been contacted to form the nucleus of the re-connect team and several other interested parties will be approached in the near future. If you have an interest in being involved with the re-connect project, please contact Tom Mathews at:

This is going to be an awesome blending of outdoor recreation. The USNWC is going to provide amenities that will indeed make it a world class destination, not only for paddling, but for mountain biking, climbing, trail running, hiking, camping, the list goes on and on…And through it all, there will be the feel of the old Catawba, so challenging but so compelling…Be a part of it, join us as we re-open the trails and welcome a new partner into the fold!
