Review: Fun little trail. Tons of ways to make killer loops. Lots of trees down other than that cool trail.

Review: Rode this for the first time last night and had a blast. Personally, I enjoy every time I'm on my bike. Each trail offers something different and Concord is no exception: trails that shoulder the lake (with consequences), nice bridges, some good places to pump, fun short downhills, not too challenging uphills, roots in places to keep your tech skills in check, and enough trail length to keep you busy for a few hours or more. I'll be returning in the future but I have some other places to visit first...

Review: Cool trail with a wilderness feel. Has a few wooden berms and fast downhill sections. Not too long or steep but still fun.

Review: This review is about the part of Concord Park that lies east of the marina. It used to be a great park for walkers and hikers. Not any more. Since the Knox County Parks Dept. has allowed recreational and mountain bikers to use the narrow trails of this park, it has become unusable for pedestrians. Bikers and pedestrians cannot co-exist on these single-track trails. You cannot even walk these trails side-by-side. So if a biker approaches a walker from behind he will create a dangerous situation for both himself and the the pedestrian unless the pedestrian quickly get out of the way or unless the biker dismounts and walks his bike past the pedestrian. In several years of hiking these trails, I have never met a biker who does not insist on having the right of way forcing me to jump aside and let him pass. What if I refuse to yield my right of way and the biker runs into me causing bodily injury? Who is going to pay for a very expensive medical evacuation and subsequent lawsuit?

Review: This is a nice little place to ride. It is on the way home and close to the house. So I can jump over for a quick ride and mix up the trails that are there to keep it a little fresh. Has enough uphill to get a good pump and some fun sections that flow OK. Can be muddy which makes the roots a bit tough, which there are plenty of. Lots of hikers, joggers and dogs not on the leash.... I don't mind dogs, but if you are not a dog person I could see where it would be a bit concerning.. There is a mixture of easy to difficult, so a little bit of everything for everybody. Trails are marked fairly well, so you know what sections you are on and how they are rated.

Review: There are a few places suitable for beginner/intermediate riders, but most of the trails are not, especially when still wet/muddy. Lots of roots (slippery when wet). Good amount of climbing though, so eat your Wheaties first! Would like to try again when not so muddy.

Review: Concord is a good all around place to ride. It is a good place to ride in the winter and has some ok downhills and some semi-flowy sections. Good ride when other places are still muddy.

Review: First place I ever MTB'd... First timers, I recommend starting elsewhere! Haha! I had fun, but it is a tough place. I mean, in was a good sort of challenging, just not good for me when I still have a lot of "figuring out" to do. Concord is a sweet park. I've hiked the trails several times and can't wait to build up my biking stamina and technique and hit this bad boy again. My 2nd run at Ijams Hickory and Amber(I think it's amber) trails went A LOT better!

Similar Trail: William Hastie Natural Area: Hard Labor Trail b/c of the diffcult climbs, Sinkhole Trail for the techy stuff.
