      The U.S. National Whitewater Center features over 40 miles of cross-country singletrack throughout the woodlands along the Catawba River and Long Creek. The trails are a staple at the USWNC's 1,300 acre outdoor recreation facility, making it a breeze to grab a beer, jump in on a yoga class, or enjoy some live music after your ride.
