Mountain Island Park

5/15 - 4:12pm
7.5 miles
80% Singletrack

The new access will be using the right of way gravel road under the transmission lines.  These will be signed and a new map will show the way.

We have been very busy while the trail has been closed.  We have added more than 1.25 miles of advanced trail (Siren Trail and Underpass) with lots of new features to ride. As noted, some of these new features are advanced/expert level and should be walked/inspected before riding.

Located at 150 Mountain Island Drive, Mount Holly on the Carolina Thread Trail. This is mostly an old school single track trail with some cool and unique features.

After getting warmed up on the new access route (1 mile one way) you can enter the single track at Bridge #1 on the CTT.  Bear to right for a quick lap or two on the beginner Boardwalk Loop. When you’re to ready step it up a notch hop onto the intermediate Outer and Inner Loops.  After climbing through bermed switchbacks, you’ll be treated to a fast downhill that runs through the trees complete with bermed turns and rollers culminating with several ladder bridges.

You can then jump on the River trail and enjoy a nice XC ride along the river or branch off and hit K2 and K34.  Each one starts with a series of climbing switchbacks to the second and third peak respectively in the park.  The exciting descent cuts across mostly side slope which has lots cool features to hit and beautiful views of the river.  Both trails will put you where the loops start in case you want to hit either one again or you can easily continue on the River Trail to next part of the trail system.

Underpass is a new advanced trail that is accessed off of the River Trail (heading south) just before CTT Bridge #3.  It is a short, but exciting, feature filled bypass of CTT Bridge #3. This trail is a one directional, bike only trail because of several wood features, confined areas, drops, open exposures to the river and limited tread width.  Underpass has features that are advanced/expert level and should be walked/inspected before riding, especially for the first time.

Siren Trail is a new mile along advanced trail that has some tough climbs with some rewarding side slope descents. This feature filled trail starts at the southern end of the River trail and ends at CTT Bridge #5.  Siren has features that are advanced/expert level and should be walked/inspected before riding, especially for the first time.

More miles and cool things to come!

With the new trail MIPT will have almost 7 miles of single track and 4 miles (out and back) of CTT.  Go enjoy.

We have more miles flagged and will continue to grow.  Watch our Facebook page for updates and future workdays.  We look forward to seeing you out there.
