Stringers Ridge - TRAIL

Stringers Ridge - Trail, Chattanooga, Tennessee

Tight twisty singletrack. Good climbs and bomber descents. Keep an eye out for the ever elusive " Ghost Fox". He tends to appear at the most inoppurtune times, often sending bikers careening over embankments or flying wildly over their handlebars as they try to avoid this ghostly apparition.

there are 2 freeride runs here,,looking up the mtn, the course to the left should not be rode,,all the wood is old and breaking,,u could probably ride the see-saw,,or the big roll in,but the vortex,,long skinny's and random other obsticle's are unsafe..the run to the more right side has a few jumps and a few drops over 4 feet,all of these should be good.there is good single track here also if u know where to find it.

I parked at the reccomended trailhead and was immediately caught off gaurd by the sickening amount of garbage that littered the area. It is, literally, like parking your car at a garbage dump. My hats are off to the Jeffrey and many of the others that have put their time & effort into cleaning up the area in order to give people an escape near the city. Unfortunatley, some ignorent, low rent, pieces of crap just like to wallow in their own crap & ruin things for everyone else. I did, however, ride past the gaurdrail (and the dozen or so fly infested garbage bags behind it), to explore the trails. All of the trails I road were passable with few tress blocking the way. I was really glad to see that someone had left logs across the road and built transitions instead of moving the logs. Also, I wandered upon a playground of stunts down one trail. There were numerous ladders and drops, and one gap jump that looked suspect. I actually rode all the drops (against my better judgement)and found the course someone laid out to be alot fun. I found very little actual singltrack. The ATV's have widened most of it and used the entire area as a playground. To each there own, I guess, but it is a shame to see good trails destroyed like that. Despite the trash & the ATV's, the area has huge potential

I just got in there and wandered around for a few hours.

As stated below the trails are now open again. Be aware of others and leave no trash behind when you leave. We are working very hard with the city and land owners to make this an accessible place for hikers and bikers. One correction is that River City Bicycles donated the care bags with waterbottles and poweraid and power bars for all toe workers. The trails are open but we still have work to do. One thing we are working on is making maps. We need GPS equipment for this. We have limited access to some but if you have the ability to help email me at trey@itrca.com. We also need those interested to just give me feedback as to what the area still needs. One of our goals will be to connect some of the left most trais to create a complete perimeter loop. ENJOY!

Turn at Nikki's Drive In, take second left (First is a Dead end), take the next 3 lefts (2 will be intersectand the 3rd will be the road to the main trailhead). The street name is High Ridge Road. Park at the open area. Ppldo not block the road there are houses down the gravel portion of the driveway.

Jeffrey   Cross Country Rider [Nov 08, 2003]

The Chattanooga Bike Club and Team R3 recently spent two days (Oct. 25th & Nov. 8th, 2003) clearing the down trees and picking up litter from this trail system. Presently, the trees have been cleared from all of the trails south of the power lines, where the best riding is located. Approximately seven miles of trails are presently open. (Before and after pictures: www.itrca.net/images/trey/stringers/ ) Other reviews suggest entering the area from the northern trailhead, which will place you north of the power lines and in the area which still needs work. I would suggest that you enter at the southern trailhead. You can get to the southern trailhead very easily. On Cherokee Blvd, turn east (you can only turn east) down the side street by Nick's restaurant. From there turn left at each intersection until you reach the southern trailhead. Please tread lightly as this entire trail system is located on private property. The following businesses supported our efforts to clear/clean-up the trail and deserve your support: The Yellow Submarine (located 181 River Street, near Coolidge Park) donated lunch for the trail workers on Oct. 25th, Pisa Pizza (551 River Street, near Coolidge Park) donated lunch for the trial workers on November 8th. Also, on November 8th, Suck Creek Cycle (505 Cherokee Blvd.) provided coffee & donuts to start the day off as well as providing gift bags to all trail workers. Tennessee Waste Haulers provided a construction site style dumpster, which we completely filled with the litter removed from the trials, and the Bolles Company provided a port-o-toilet.

Start at the southern trailhead and explore!

charles lane   [Nov 27, 1998]

this trail has awesome potential if some of the bike geeks in the area would put a little work into it . considering there are two bike shops within 1 mile , thats right one mile, it should be pretty easy to get the job done . i enjoyed exploring the trail and finding all the little secrets , i especially liked the jumps on the road parts , the trails under the power lines were sweet. i really liked those you could burn on them just get to know the trail first ,because i luckily cleared a washed out section with a massive bunny hop that was brought on by adrenal fear not skill. i also observed several no trespassing signs along the trail .In conclusion i must say i will be back.

Customer Service

all kinds of ways to this trail just find the road that ends at the dump sight, or the driveway that has the no trespassing sign.most directions given are accurate .

My favorite trail in Chattanooga. Once you get used to it you can have a ball out there. Good climbing, good descending, great technical sections, and convenience make this my primary riding trail. I go out here 3-4 times a week. There has been some talk of the land being devoloped so if anyone wants to experience this great ride you might want to make your way out there sooner rather than later.

Customer Service

same or park at Nikki's or downtown and ride in from the road.

grueling climbs. i love it. Correction to one of the previous reviews, there are actually 3 bike shops within 1-2 miles of this trail. The 2 abondoned houses kind of give the place a creepy feel if you nightride it.

I usually go with my boyfriend. The trail is a little tough but a lot of fun. If it's a nice day we usually ride stringers and ride through moccasin bend and the downtown area.

This trail is good for all of us in the chattanoga area, but I wouldn't recomend traveling any distance to ride it. I agree that it has some potential if people would work on it, but it is still pretty good. Kinda rough in spots though. So, if you live in chattanooga or north GA, check it out.....if not, dont bother.
