Lake Hickory

The Lake Hickory Trails are a local favorite for a great weekend loop or after work spin. With some punchy climbs and great views of the lake, you’ll earn your post ride beers!

Trail Profile

Re-opened in the spring of 2018, the Lake Hickory Trails were completely overhauled and rebuilt by professional trail builder Terra Tek (the same company that built a lot of Rocky Knob). This $100,000 makeover was funded by community sponsors and individual donors.

The Lake Hickory Trails compirse of 3 main sections

  • The Hickory Springs Loop, a 1.5 mile beginner friendly loop, with easy access to the green-way.
  • The Broyhill Trail, a 4.3 mile intermediate loop with spectacular views of Lake Hickory, fast flowy burms and some great trail features that will keep you on your toes.
  • Skills Park and Rock n’ Road Pump Track: One of the biggest pump tracks in the region, as well as an advanced 1/8th mile jump line that will have you second guessing if you’re really still in downtown Hickory!
