LANO BannerItusi Trail @ Lake Norman State Park

The Laurel Loop:

The 4.75 Laurel Loop opened on January 2, 2010 to rave reviews.  This section is built with more technical trail features and has a different personality from the rest of the Itusi Trail system.  This is the initial phase of the Laurel Loop that is open tot he public while work continues on the second phase.  Total mileage for the Laurel Loop will eventually be approximately 8 miles.

Trail Reversal:

Each loop of the Itusi Trail will be ridden in a counter-clockwise direction during odd-numbered years and clockwise during even numbered years.  The trail is reversed each January 1st to give the riders a new riding experience and allow the trail to "heal".  Be aware that some riders will still be riding in the "wrong" direction until they get the message.
