      Located in Banner Elk, NC at 4000’, the Lees-McRae campus cycling facilities contain over 6 miles of ever evolving trail ranging from flow trail to technical singletrack and everything in between.

      There is a dirt jump line, well maintained dual slalom track with start gate, and a challenging downhill track with times ranging from 2-3 minutes.

      The campus trails are set up to be used as race courses with a unique cross country race lap and a short track course a well. Our trails have also been used in multiple national and conference championship events.

      The dual slalom, short track, and more tame “Pirate Trails” are located near the Williams Gym behind the softball facilities.

      The trail head for the cross country and downhill is located by The Mill Pond across from the dam. For first timers it is recommended that you are guided by someone who is familiar with the trails as they intertwine and are loosely marked.
