Gatewood Mountain Bike Trail

We just got done with our first ever mountain bike ride on this trail. The beginning of the trail isn't immediately clear (down the slope and go under the fallen tree, hah!), but after getting our bike legs a bit and walking up some of the steepest parts we were able to finish! I even think we got a little lost, coming out behind the hospital and having to get back to the cars along the road on the sidewalk.

Maybe not for the most beginner of beginners, but what can I say, we're ambitious! Bring your phone and you'll be fine!

A great park for family camping. The lake is a great place to swim and play in the summer. Campsites are well maintained and in close proximity to a bath house. The bath house was clean and well lit.

Campsites have a picnic table, fire ring with grate, and flat tent pad. There are RV spots with all the appropriate hook ups as well.

Good trail, about 1,400 feet in elevation but never got really step. This trail is extremely popular so the trail was very crowded but the view was worth it, Amazing 270 degree view of the entire Catawba Valley. This trail is great for dogs.

Fun Hike and nice waterfall at the end. It's pretty steep on the way back up though. Just be prepared for that.
