Come join Ranger Will and hit some miles on our mountain biking trail: Itusi. Group will meet out front of the Visitor Center at 6 PM under the American flag. We will plan to ride the Wildlife, Fallstown, and Fox Loop and can easily add more miles. The ride is open to all ages—but, mountain biking experience will be needed because these loops are over 7 miles long with technical areas. Riders will need a mountain bike, a helmet, and the courage to rip over some terrain. Riders will also get a chance to learn about the ways they can help Lake Norman maintain the trails by volunteering with the Tarheel Trailblazers. The ride will be canceled if the Itusi Trail System is closed—please check our website for closures.
