Basically both falls trails and then the extension up to Chestnut Knob.

Overview

Features: River/Creek — Views — Waterfall

Description

The trails are very runnable, but challenging both technically and from an endurance perspective. I consider this an excellent entry level mountain trail race if you are seeking a little more climbing than you find in the lower Piedmont and the Charlotte area.
