Knoll#2 (or K2) is open. It branches off of the River Trail. K2 starts with a heart pumping climb to one of the highest points in the park, followed by a fun downhill run with lots of little extras to hit. 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 on the Carolina Thread Trail near Mt. Holly, 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!
