Lake Norman State Park / Itusi Trail

The Itusi trail (which incorporates the Hicks Creek and Norwood Loops) total approximately 6.5 miles in length. The most recent addition to the LNSP trails was with the opening of the 6 mile Monbo loop in spring of 2007. The trails are a rolling, Tsali-esque type of ride. The flow is unbelievable, and the future expansion (The “Laurel Loop” – scheduled for completion in Spring, 2009) will add approximately 3.5 miles of advance level trail to the park. The following phase will up the Laurel Loop to almost 9 miles. A grant application to construct trail on 255 additional acres (11.5 trail miles) will make LNSP (at over 30 trail miles) 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, swimmimg and showers are but a few of the park ammenities.

 

12.8 miles

 

Take I-77N to exit 42, and turn left onto Hwy 21 (west?), and follow the Brown signs to LNSP (approx 7 miles).
