DescriptionPark Highlights: Phase One of what is officially being called Buffalo Creek Park and Lake Lure Summits Trail System is now open. The park was designed for mountain biking with switchbacks, berms and rollers for jumping, but it is a multi-use park ideal for hikers, trail runners and nature lovers too. This is the only bike trail system of its kind within 20 miles. When fully developed there will be 10 miles of trails, with this first phase being a 3-1/2 mile loop.

There are multiple creeks along the trail with well-built bridges to walk or ride over. Along the way you have many views of Lake Lure and the adjacent Young’s Mountain. With every step up the trail these views become more majestic. About half way up the trail you will also encounter a huge boulder field that may very well become a popular climbing spot as we met two guys that were out there for that exact reason. All in all, the trails are very well made and maintained which makes this a must do trail hike or ride in Lake Lure, NC!
