All the trails at River Bend Park in Catawba, NC are sweet runs. Small rolling hills, several flats and easy grades on a mostly dirt, some gravel, surface. Several creek crossings, bridges with single track paths. Several sections with a pine needle floor. Every trail junction is marked with a map and number, so you can adjust your routes as you go without fear of getting turned around. With so many trails, you can change your route every time. Sparsely populated, so lots of alone time. My go-to place to run and I am there frequently. Nov 1, 2018
