Located in Huntersville, NC, Latta Plantation is a popular spot for outdoor enthusiasts and trail runners alike. 1,460 acres and 16 miles of trails with lake views, forest lands, and streams make for a great location to run moderate to semi-technical trails. Free access and plenty of parking available, scattered throughout, including by the front office. Latta is worth the drive, even if you're traveling from outside of Huntersville. The trail system is well marked, and most trails loop back on one another if you need to cut your run short. Bathrooms are located at the main office and towards the back of the park. Be sure to bring fluids and nutrition with you, as it can take up to a few hours to navigate the trails if you're moving at a moderate pace.
