TRAIL CLOSURE:

Duke and the City of Mt. Holly are putting together an official statement. But as of now, this is what I have been told.

The trails will be closed to public access starting September 6th to sometime in January.

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 (some time in January) 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 offical (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 (2026).

At this time the THTB will continue to build new and maintain existing trails in the park during this time.

K34 starts with a series of climbing switchbacks to the 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.  The trail will put you where the loop started in case you want to hit it again or you can easily continue on to next part of the trail system.

Located at 400 Montain 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.  More miles to come!

Follow us at @miptmtb.

With the new trail now open MIPT has almost 4.5 miles of single track and 3 miles (out and back) of CTT.  Go enjoy.

We have another 1.5 miles flagged and have started clearing.  Watch our Facebook page for updates and future workdays.  We look forward to seeing you out there.
