The Divas venture outside the Charlotte area several times a year for day trips to explore new trails. Locations are typically within 2 hours drive of Charlotte and have included places like Dark Mountain in Wilkesboro, NC; The New River Trail in southern VA; the FATS Trail System near Augusta, GA; and Clemson’s Issequeena Trails in SC; to name a few.

October 11, 2014: Lake Norman State Park – Located in Troutman, NC
The Itusi trail system (which incorporates the Hawk, Hicks Creek and Norwood Loops) totaling approximately 6.5 miles, in length opened in 2003. The fast and flowing 6 mile Monbo loop opened in spring of 2007. Spring of 2010 welcomed the opening of the 5 mile Laurel Loop. The trails are a rolling, Tsali-esque type of ride. The flow is unbelievable, and Laurel Loop expansion was completed in 2012 which upped Laurel Loop to approximately 9.75 miles. More additions in 2012 included the Fallstown Loop (1.25 miles), the Fox Loop (2.5 miles) and the Wildlife Loop (4.25 miles) to the southern trails. This brings LNSP to approximately 30 trail miles. LNSP is a true epic ride, with something for everyone. The trail reverses direction on Jan 1st of each year, so check directional markers and details at the kiosk before starting your ride. Camping, swimming and showers are but a few of the park amenities.
