Charlotte Building The Longest Biking Trail in NC – The XCLT


The City of Charlotte and Mecklenburg County continue to make significant progress on their 26-mile Cross Charlotte Trail (XCLT) – a trail that will soon stretch all the way from South Carolina, through Pineville and Uptown Charlotte, then up to UNCC until it hits the Cabarrus County line in Harrisburg.

Once completed, XCLT will officially be the longest paved biking trail in North Carolina – you’ll be able to ride seamlessly from one end of Mecklenburg County to the other. The longest current trail is the American Tobacco Trail extending 22 miles from Durham to down to Wake County.
