Summary:
I was in town for a week and this place wasn't far from where I stayed, so I checked it out. I'm glad it only took me a few minutes to get here. It's not singletrack, the trail drains poorly so there's tons of mud, and joggers get in the way. If its all you have time for, and you can do 2+ loops, then fine. But don't go out of your way to check it out.

Summary:
This trail is very dry right now and easy to ride. It is a great place to take a beginner.

The Chattanooga chapter of SORBA is doing trail maintence to repair areas that usually remain muddy in the winter and spring.

Recommended Route:
This trail is a loop and may be ridden in either direction.

Summary:
A very fast trail. Great for beginners. I went about 2 days after a good rain and about 50% was one big mud puddle. There's a spot near the lake where the trail was really swampy after rain and was underwater for about 1/4 mile. There were 2 downed trees (big ones)that I had to crawl over and they could do a better job marking the trail.

Summary:
No this trail is not very difficult at all, BUT like the last reviewer said if you hammer it the whole way it can be pretty interesting. 2 laps at a kick ass pace makes for a nice ride...I would however try to avoid this trail on the weekends as it can be very crowded with hikers, joggers and OLD MEN WHO LOOSE CONTROL OF THEIR CRUISER BIKES RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOU...anyway...

Recommended Route:
go straight at the split

Summary:
As fast as you can go is the only way to ride this course. When wide-open, it is technical, fun and a great workout. Don't let anybody fool you. All trails are easy if you poke. This is a beginner's trail but fun for anyone with the balls to peg it out.

Recommended Route:
Good Ride but do it wide open

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Signal Mountain
