Figure 8 Loop and Restaurant/BAR Opening Sat. March 31st at USNWC
The long-awaited openings of the Figure 8 Trail Loop and the Restaurant/BAR at USNWC are finally here! The Figure 8 Trail Loop is opening 1 day ahead of schedule and the restaurant/BAR will be open for the weekend with its official full-time opening on Mon. April 2nd.
Come enjoy riding a challenging re-construction of the famous Figure 8 Trail Loop that was once in the most remote part of the park. It is now a black diamond option off of the existing North Trails Loop with narrow bridges, rocks, drop-offs and roots galore.
After your ride enjoy a snack, a meal or a cold one at the restaurant/BAR in the main building.
A big Thank You! goes out to the many people who contributed much time and effort to making this difficult but rewarding trail building experience come to completion. Thanks especially to Mike K. of the USNWC for his tireless efforts in pulling together materials and resources and for putting in many back-breaking hours with his crew and volunteers to make the huge bridges that were needed to span the drainages a reality. His patience and creativity while working with the Trailblazers on these unique structures is much appreciated.
Be sure to check the OPEN or CLOSED status of the trail on either the Tarheel Trailblazers' or the US National Whitewater Center's website when there has been recent rainfall. We make efforts to update the posting by 10:00am each day. So get out and ride! Frank P.
