This trail is all fire-road from the top of Tallulah Gorge to lake Tugalo. The trail is 90% downhill on the way in; so you do the math on the way out.

Summary:
Nice long endurance test(easy pace - 2.5hrs including bluffs run, add 30-45 if you are out of shape and have to walk on the way back). 5 miles downhill, 5 back up. Not too bad of a grade and its a nice wide fire road, so pretty easy lines(though lots of loose baseball size rocks covering a few sections). More of a fitness/scenic ride, nothing I would call remotely technical. "The Bluffs" 1.5 mile shootoff at the top is a nice little technical section. Moderate single track with 3 main climbs and the rest downhill/flat technical sections. Creek crossing was pretty muddy, my only off of the day due to the stump in the middle.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Unicoi is a much better trail if you're looking for something technical.

Summary:
This trail is pretty fun on the way down. There are a few short rock climbs, but it's not very hard.You can get going pretty fast on some part and there is a beautiful view of the lake, but once you get to the turn around, it turns into a pretty difficult climb the rest of the way back to the parking lot. It is pretty much up hill the rest of the way. This is one of the more senic trails I have ridden, but not one of the most technical trails(I can promise you that)

Recommended Route:
It will tell you at the top of the page

Summary:
Starts inside the park and is pretty much all downhill. You can get some pretty good speed over the last 2 miles and there are lots of small jumps. Definately gives your shocks a workout! Ends at the Tugaloo Lake boat ramp (a nice place to sit with your feet in the water ;) As others have said, the return trip is all uphill. Don't be tempted to take the gravel road back from the boat ramp, it is insanely steep for 4 miles.

Recommended Route:
Only one way down!

Summary:
This is a very good trail to ride if you want to relax a little. Nothing technical, but very good jumps on the rocks - good for FS bikes 4.8 miles down and then another 4.8 miles up. Trail for everybody. If you are sure that there is no one going up you can forget yourself and go, go faster, faster I said.

Recommended Route:
There is only one way in!

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Many
