North Carolina boasts some of the country’s best biking trails, including world renowned trails. Hundreds of trails can be found across the state; from beginner to advanced there is something for everyone. We are proud to include off-road biking as one of the many great sporting activities offered in and around Mooresville.
The following parks feature biking trails for all levels of riders.
Lake Norman State Park Trails
Lake Norman State Park offers bikers a rolling trail through heavy forestation along the fingers of Lake Norman. While the trail is beginner friendly, advanced riders enjoy it as well. Constructed by a volunteer workforce under the guidance of the Tarheel Trailblazers mountain bike club, the completion of the new Laurel Loop added 3.5 miles of additional single-track. Future plans call for trail construction on a recently acquired 250 acre parcel that will ultimately result in a destination trail system that approaches 30 miles of buff single-track.
