I only rode this trail once because of the ATV's and ATV damage. There was no singletrack to be found and I was almost flattened by some 13yo's on ATV's. The ATV riders do not ride with any concern for other people on the track. Trails were not marked at all. I would not recommend this trail at all when there are other great trails in the area. Go ride Booker T or Raccoon Mountain.

ATV's have taken over this area and ruined what singletrack there was. Still a good ride and the scenery is still very nice except for the trash they drop as they drive around. Fast and flowing but definitely no singletrack left. Lots of puddles and the wet winter the mud will pack up on tires really bad.

This trail is hard packed clay with long, shallow mud holes. The ride to the point is wicked fast; the ride back to the cars is uphill. The view is awesome and sometimes we'll take groups out on the trails just to get video of crashes into these mud holes. Overall this trail is awesome.

Customer Service

From edwards point road, get around the wire cable blocking the fire road, and follow it straight to the point.

there are alot of trails around edwards point i live right by it so i am over there almost every day.you can park on the side of timberlinks dr. and take the ridge to edwards point or you can take the main trail that you enter on edwards point rd. across the street from the sports mans club or you can go in at the end of the road and take a left to get there

go to the top of signal mountain and take the first left then you follow that road until you come to like a 5 way stop and you turn onto timberlinks dr. you follow timberlinks dr. until you see edwards point rd. on the left

Edwards Point is a great trail system. Going to UTC its 10minutes away and has several trails to choose from. The views from the point is a must see. Ive ridden this trail 5times in the past week and a half and each time i have found different trails to ride. Cant find a map for it but that makes it more fun to try and get lost then ride the way out. Ive heard about mushroom rock and a waterfall but havent found either yet. anyone know where to find them?? Overall a great place to ride for all skill levels

Customer Service

Start at the top of the mountain on timberlinks. ride the main trail out till it gets to a 3way T intersection. Hang a left and it will take you out to the point. From here come back up the hill to the 3 way and go straight this time. Up the hill,little bit less than a mile is a turn off to the right, take it and it is a smooth downhill back to the main trail that you came in on. Turn left and it will take you back to your car. i am not sure but that loop is maybe 8miles. There are several trails in the area so just pick one and see where it goes.

The trails are just plain alsome. There is a mixture of every type of trail possible. I like best the Mushroom rock trail though mostly because of the rock but also because unlike the other trails trucks cannot fit up it as easy so it is less crowded. If yo live in the area you must ride this trail. If not this one at least one of the million along the roadside. So many different trails in fact I dont think any one has ever been on all of them.

It's a great trail! The best place to ride on Edwards point would probably be to mushroom rock. Their is a trail below mushroom rock thats worth taking a look at. But its a hard trail to ride down. A large creek and a campsite is down there. A 250' bridge crosses the creek to Suck Creek Mtn. I live in the area so I ride it quite a bit.

My wife and rode this on a Monday. No one else was there. We had a map from a Tenn. Trail Book that someone faxed to me and all of the reviews from this page.
Here's what we found out. We started down the fire roads. Well they turned out to be full of mud holes where big 4x4s tore them up. So, we turned around, went back to the street and road down the street aways
(100 ft). There we found a 4 wheeler trail (broken glass for 50 ft). We followed it, then came to a T. We took a left down some cool down hill, crossed the strem and followed it to the road. Turned around and just after the stream on the left we found a signal track. Followed it about 1/2 mile to an alsome water fall. Well this is the hiken trail, we carried and walked our
bikes for about 2 miles. Soon this became NOT FUN. So we turned around and went back to were the trail came to the T at the 4 wheeler trail. Passed the trail we came in on and kept going for 3 miles. This trook us to the fire that the 4x4s trashed. Took a left, this lead use to the Look Out. It was alsome. Since we wasted some much time tring to find it, we didn't have time to go to Mushroom rock. So we took the fire roads out and guested at which one we would follow. There where a few was to go.......4 miles later we where at the road. The trails need to be marked.
