A Next Generation Trail System for Hickory!

The Lake Hickory Trails and the Northwest North Carolina Mountain Bike Alliance have worked together to raise money to overhaul the Lake Hickory Trails! Over $120,000 was raised from corporate sponsors and over 100 personal donations from local trail users. This enabled us to build a new trail system, pump track and skills area, which was completed in 2018.

Trail Funding

The Lake Hickory Trails project would not be a reality without the generous giving of many local riders, runners, companies and volunteers. If your company would like to become a sponsor of the Lake Hickory Trail System, we have many options available. All giving to the Lake Hickory Trail System is tax deductible through our partnership with The Northwest North Carolina Mountain Bike Alliance.

Special thanks to the dedication and volunteer hours from Kirk Brittain, Jeremy Saylor, Brad Stevens, Ryan Carroll, Al Hill & Jeff Moore.
