From the lot take trail to the fork. Strat clock and ride counter clockwise. Stop clock when you get back to where you started the clock. No shortcuts. Post your time as a review here. If you improve your time later, re-post with your name followed by re-post. Please be honest, this is just for fun.

Summary:
this is a nice trail when its not a mud bog,although some of us like the mud. the course is pretty smooth with a few hills thrown in for fun. very shady and cool. the course can be ridden clockwise or counterclockwise with counterclockwise being a little faster. the trail is twisty and has some blind turns so you have to be careful.

Recommended Route:
counterclockwise is a little faster. my personal best is 21 minutes but yesterday on a very dry trail my son ripped it up in 15 min and 57 seconds he races sport category in xc mtn bike racing.

Summary:
Harrison Bay is a great training ride. Watch for other riders and runners coming the opposite direction. There are some really blind turns. I heard one guy say it was like road racing on a trail. It's smooth and non-technical but there are some rooty sections. Best time is 16:20 after one or two good warm up laps. Fun trail. Free on Wednesdays and $3.00 other times. Trail is maintained by the park service and Chattanooga SORBA. Be sure to support them both.

Recommended Route:
counterclockwise

Summary:
Well unfortunately I rode two laps counterclockwise and then timed myself clockwise. Going "balls to the wall" I made it around, big ring all the way, in just under 18 minutes. I had to deal with a lot of oncoming traffic, and passed one rider and a couple hiking. I'd like to come out in the winter on a weekday when there is sure to be NO ONE around, and now that I know the trail better, I know I could do it much faster. I've thought that NORBA should do some shorter course races, and this would be the shit! It's kinda like Tsali Jr.! I rate it four wheelies cuz of the weekend traffic.

Recommended Route:
I preferred counter-clockwise (it's faster). Clockwise gives you a couple of very short, out-of-saddle pushes when you are in the big ring and timing yourself.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Edwards Point, Prentice Cooper.
