Signal Hill Trail
The Signal Hill Trail is something of a throwback to the earlier days of mountain biking. The trail line has been hewn by hand so it avoids that “freeway” type of trail that results from building with machines. The property is broken up by the rec department buildings, associated roads and an old model airplane field. As a bonus, it is built on top of the old Statesville landfill! Needless to say, this made trail design a challenge.
Currently, there is approximately 3 miles of trail. While there aren’t any big climbs, there is a lot of small hills and bumps that will keep you out of the saddle.
The trail head is located at approximately 370 Signal Hill Dr. (map below). Look for the gravel parking lot beside the electric sub-station. The trail starts at the information kiosk at the far end of the parking lot.
