Single track, Jeep roads, old mining area. Extremely technical sections as well as easy going routes. Good mix of climbs and descents. Beautiful scenery(Falls, Overlooks, Mushroom Rock,etc).

Summary:
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.

Recommended Route:
None

Summary:
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.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Raccoon Mountain, Booker T

Summary:
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.

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

Other recommended trails in the same area:
1)Mavic Springs
2)Mushroom rock from Nolan Elementary/ Shackleford Ridge Soccer complex. directions: Follow signs to Shackleford Ridge Soccer Complex and park by the fields. Between the concessions stand and the back field there is a trail. follow it back and down a hill, turn left and follow to mushroom rock. you can also get there by taking the right trail from a four way intersection towards edwards point.

Summary:
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

Recommended Route:
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

Other recommended trails in the same area:
i recommend going to mushroom rock,and the sand pits to get to mushroom rock you take the main trail across the street from the sports mans club until you come to the 4 way stop when you reach the 4 way stop you take a right once your on that trail you stay strait then you will reach a T when you reach that you take a left you go down that trail a little then you will mushroom rock on the left

Summary:
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

Recommended Route:
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.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Been to Prentice Cooper once. decent trail. Only been in the area for about 4 weeks so dont many other trails relatively close.
