Mountain Biking + Trail Running + Hiking
Hike, run, or bike through the forest and alongside rivers, creeks, and lakes.
The Whitewater Center maintains over 50 miles of trails for mountain bikers, hikers and trail runners. Use of the trail system does not require an activity pass. Please check the current trail status (at the top of the website) prior to accessing the trail system.
What to Wear
Helmet (Mountain Biking Only)
How can I find out if the trails are open/closed?
Trail status can be checked via the status light at top of any page (Green indicates Open Trails, Red indicates Closed Trails), or by calling Guest Services at 704.391.3900.
Why do you close the trails?
We close the trails to preserve the health of the trail system and for trail maintenance. This is the most sustainable way to operate trails with a high use pattern.
Can I still hike or run if the trails are closed?
When the trails are closed it means they are closed to all traffic. By keeping traffic off of the trails we allow the trails to rebound faster.
