Something for every level. Bridges, small jumps, burms, downhill, etc. Do not ride if it just rained unless you like to slip and slide. I love this place! It is a blast to ride. I am somewhat a beginner and get better and faster every ride here. Has some fast downhills that can freak you out a bit if you are not used to it, but I made it down fine. Gained speed even with the breaks locked!

I enter from parking lot and bypass the rocky climb to the right and take that trail to the twister trail and along the shore and then just explore from there. Get lost a lot but eventually you find the way out. There are several places to enter and several places to exit. Allow yourself time to explore, or take a trail map with you. Its very helpful.

This trail is far from my place in Marietta,Ga. (about 180-190 miles) but the drive is absolutely worth it.This trail has it all;sweet singletrack along a beautiful lake(Melton Hill),Technical singletrack,great downhills and great views.I really enjoyed this trail.Don't let the lack of altitude fool you(850 to 1100feet approximately),this one is a great workout with 20+ miles.

This is eightteen miles of single track and a power line road. There is some awsome downhills. I would suggest riding this place with someone who has riden it before. there is always riders there ask someone if you can ride with them try to keep up and don't fall in the lake. This is one of the best places in the state i have found to ride have a blast. remember Trails befor tricks (women) always.

Customer Service

it doesn't matter where you go get in to the trails and just keep riding until you can find your way out it is sweet. I starterd riding here but beginners should take it easy.

These trails offer a mix of riding. Lots of ups and downs, without too much sustained climbing. If you want to climb and suffer, ride the hill of truth under the power lines to the top. Steep doubletrack with loose gravel FUN ;-).

There are plenty of technical sections to choose from. The descents on Ridge trail are steep and loose. There is also some nice technical stuff on Rainbow. Many of the trails have nice technical sections, but most can be ridden by XC geeks on hardtails.

These are just plain fun to ride trails with lots of SINGLETRACK! They have just enough technical stuff to make you pay attention without making you dismount and walk every couple hundred yards. I recommend bringing anyone here who is thinking about giving up the sport. It will revive them.

Also, for all of you freeriders out there, there is a super-secret stunt trail being built. I haven't ridden it as it is not my style of riding, but I do know it exists. I just can't tell anyone where it is. Check with the guys at Harper's in Knoxville.

This is a great place to stop over on the way to/or from the beaches of the south. I stopped by on the way home from Hilton Head for a four hour morning ride before heading home. You may feel lost for the first hour or so, but then you will get the hang of it. Not too technical and probably not too much climbing by Ten. standards, but it sure helped a flat lander like me prepare for my summer mountain riding in Colorado. Bottom line: It was all that was advertised and I thank the other reviewers for taking the time to steer me there.

Hang to the right over the ridge and catch every loop on the way out and back

On the way to Nashville and a friend told us about this jewel. Lots of trails from beginner to intermediate. Well marked and maintained. Just make sure to pick up a map and only go on trails at your riding level.

Ridge Trail had brutal climbs and decents. Made all of Roller Coaster's climbs other than the last. Saddle Trail was excellent singletrack - not too technical. The trails along the lake seemed to provide the best long consistent riding, just don't fall because the drop into the lake is steep. Loved the variety.

Customer Service

Ride the shoreline for a moderate workout without too much technical stuff.

Haw Ridge offers something for intermediate to expert riders. Definitely a heck of a workout, with speedy fire roads, singletrack, freakin crazy roller coasters rides, excrutiating and seemingly unrealistic climbs and fantastic to scary downhills. Dont be afraid to ride here; doing so will get you in great shape...

Customer Service

depends on skill level....seriously!
