I C King Park

Average Rating:    (3.97 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 31

a short but fun trail system consisting of three loops: a beginner, intermediate and advanced. More trails currently being built by Southern Cycling Operations on the South side of the park. These will be much more hilly and advanced. Projected to be finished by Spring 2000 (fingers crossed).

Summary:
Agree COMPLETELY with the Creepers comment! WOW!! They even have two parking places for police! No police present this day and LOTS of creepers! The trail in the early stages is very rough with roots. I wonder if it gets washed out by the lake yearly. The trails further from the trail head are really pretty good! An enjoyable ride with some tough climbs and very good downhills. Some technical spots and some easy sections. I will not be going back, but if SORBA ever comes in here and works on these trails it could be a great place to ride.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Concord Park or Haw Ridge are both much better!

Summary:
Watch out for the parking lot at this place; it seems like a hang out for CREEPERS. I don't know if the people were looking for drugs or a gay date. I will not be going back.

The trails were nice and I didn't see anything or anyone that was out of the ordinary. This was a fun ride with nice elevation changes but nothing too crazy. I was riding a full suspension bike but a hard tail would have been fine too. Trails are mostly Tennessee red dirt with a lot of tree roots and occasionally a few rocks. There are some fast sections and some hairpin turns. The trails have a lot of shade so the sun doesn't beat you too had in the summer. As you are riding there are a few routes you can take as the others have stated. I remember taking wimps pass and the others after that I don't recall, but I ended up in the parking lot across the lake ( I assume it was the old park entrance) I rode back to the highway and web back to my car through the main entrance. I thought the trail went all the way around the lake but maybe it just cuts back the way you came. Overall it was decent trail.

Recommended Route:
Get there early before the freaks show up (not talking about hikers and bikers).

Summary:
I ride here on Saturdays. Just rode this past Saturday and Wimps pass is blocked from storm damage. The expert trail has some trees down but you can cross them easilly. This is one of my favorite in the area. I go early to avoid any crowds.

Recommended Route:
I ride the expert trail, then the upper lake. Go across the bridge to the south side up whimps pass and over to middle hill, back over Kimbles Ladder for a fun twisty down hill. over the bridge again and lower lake back to the trail head.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Panther Creek, Haws Ridge

Summary:
I don't get a chance to come down here much but I absolutely love this trail. It's well kept and I still have yet to encounter any strange people. Actually saw a guy picking up garbage along the trail. Very well kept. It is not very difficult at all though. Has a scenic route and not bad at all considering location.

Recommended Route:
Across the bridge to the most difficult section.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Haw Ridge and my personal favorite- Panther Creek
