Raccoon Mountain. Just outside of Chattanooga.
Matter of opinion, buddy.Hollis said:Nashville:
Hamilton Creek 12 miles of rocky rooty goodness.
Exit 59 on I-24 @ Antioch
Haw Ridge is in Oak Ridge, which is about another 90 minutes east of Chatty. I highly doubt that it would be considered worth three hours drive time to ride there. Not bad at all, but not three hours good.skintup said:Haw Ridge is a local favorite, and you can ride any time, it is closed five days out of the year for a draw hunt end of October. So you could make it unless your pushing this car with a bike on the trunk.
You are into freeriding, and you don't like HC? WTF.rmb_mike said:Matter of opinion, buddy.
I live all of five miles from Hammy and it still remains my last choice of XC trails (when I ride XC that is). Way too technical, rocky and rooty for me. I'd rather go ride in circles in my back yard than to ride at Hammy.
Best trail in middle TN is Montgomery Bell, about 30 miles west of Nashville, then probably Lock 4 in Gallatin (about 30 miles NE of Nashville).
While freeriding is technically 'free' riding and can be anything other than sanctioned racing, the version that you and I speak of involves dirt jumps, drops and North Shore style wooden stunts, none of which are currently part of HC...or ANY public trail here in MT for that matter.StumpyinTN said:You are into freeriding, and you don't like HC?
