Mountain Island Park

1/24 - 1:36pm
7.5 miles
69% Singletrack



The trails will be closed to public access until Duke has completed its work on their transmission lines which will be sometime in March/April.

The city and Duke have developed an alternate access, but this will not be opened until two things happen.

1. Duke is doing work on the transmission lines and this work must be finished before they can be used.
2. The city and Duke must work out an agreement with the landowner who owns the property between Duke and the city’s property. It is my understanding the owner is receptive to the plan but it needs to be made official (an agreement signed).

Once the transmission part has been done the parking area below the dam will not be open until the dam rework has been completed (2027).

At this time the THTB will continue to build new and maintain existing trails in the park during this time. We are getting near completion of another mile (aka Siren Trail) of intermediate/advanced trail with some cool features on it.

K2 and K34 start with a series of climbing switchbacks to the second and third peak 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 to next part of the trail system.

Located at 400 Mountain Island Drive, Mount Holly on the Carolina Thread Trail. This is a growing sweet ride. After getting warmed up on the CTT 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.  More miles and cool things to come!

Follow us at @miptmtb.

With the new trail getting ready to open, MIPT will have almost 6.5 miles of single track and 3 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.
