Long Hunter State Park

Average Rating:    (2.86 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 7

A good area to explore now that the day trail at Long Hunter State Park is closed to cyclists. Watch for Jeeps and motorcycles on the trails. There are several routes to take with the best ones beside the lake. This is a good place to go explore if you get bored with Hamilton Creek up the road.

Summary:
Lots of rocks and roots, not for the week of heart. Only about 3 miles, but do it twice for a good workout.

Summary:
I had a fun time riding here, I went two days in a row. This was my first outing on a new bike my first 29er and I had a blast. I spent most of my time doing several passes on the short loop. There is a lot of limestone and a fair amount of roots and a few ride-able trees across the trail for some easy obstacles. The trail makes it's way downhill gradually but still offers some speed then there are a few switchbacks uphill. You make your way up and down so it's not all down then up but a good mix of up and down intermixed.

The second day it had rained right before I got there and the large chunks of limestone you ride across made the trail super slick which was fun in a holy crap I'm going to hit that tree kind of way. I had to slow it down and be pretty careful but was still an enjoyable time. I took some pictures of the trail and hopefully you can find them here.

Summary:
As previous reviewer indicated, there are now around 2-3 miles of trail at Longhunter, in the Bryant Grove section of the park. Follow the "Jones Mill Mountain Bike Trail" signs from Hobson Pike.

The trail is pretty easy, a good beginner trail. It's also the closest trail to Murfreesboro. (Take Couchville Pike west from 840 east.)

Recommended Route:
Go clockwise. The trails are clearly marked.

Summary:
Longhunter has been extended and an entire back section of new trail has been opened that essentially doubles the length. Nice easy trail. Some gentle hills and nice view but nothing too challenging. Definitely worth checking out since the new trail has been added.

Recommended Route:
only one way really with a couple of bailouts

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Lock 4 or Ham creek are both 10-15 miles from here

Summary:
Hey guys - they are TRYING to open this back up or even get some new trails. Don't give up! Email Garry Patterson with the state dept at garyw.patterson@state.tn.us and/or Ranger Mullins at thurman.mullins@state.tn.us who works at Long Hunter and let him know that you want to ride out there!
