TRACK Trail

Lake Shore Trail

The Lake Shore Trail is a beautiful, scenic footpath along the lake shore. It is designed to accommodate an array of fitness levels as it has shortcuts (3 miles round trip) and extensions (6.3 miles round trip). Voted by Charlotte a must see trail - it is sure to impress.

The Lake Norman State Park TRACK Trail adventures were designed for use on the Lakeshore Trail and the Short Turn Trail.

Quarry Trail

This trail, approximately 0.6 of a mile long, is one of the Kids in Parks Track Trails. Brochures with a variety of activities for children can be found at the trailhead. This trail also goes by the Civilian Conservation Corps’ (CCC) rock quarry which supplied many of the rocks used to construct the park’s buildings, curbs and walls during The Great Depression. Rock exposed by quarrying and erosion offer insights to the area’s unique geologic past. Dragonflies and frogs now take advantage of the small pond formed as a result of rock quarrying.
