Trail Description
About this trail
Tight twisty singletrack. Good climbs and bomber descents. Keep an eye out for the ever elusive " Ghost Fox". He tends to appear at the most inoppurtune times, often sending bikers careening over embankments or flying wildly over their handlebars as they try to avoid this ghostly apparition.

Review: Fun rolling trail. I only came up with about 3 miles on the longer loop not anywhere near the 8. But I did two loops and had a smile on my face the entire time. No big climbs but some fast declines with fun switchbacks.

Review: Fun place to ride. It may be more for beginners to intermediates like me. But there are some quick trails and also some trails with good climbs and switchbacks

Review: While staying at the Crash Pad I decided to ride to this trail which is located just on the north bank of the Tennessee River. This trail did not disappoint! The climbs gave way to many awesome decents that were flowy and smooth with some small jumps. It was clear to me that the trail builders put a lot of thought and effort into making this trail something that many levels of mountain bikers could enjoy.

Review: Great ride when you only have a short amount of time. This trail is still young and being developed. You can tell it was designed to be quick and challenging. There is some challenging parts and you need to stay on your toes. There are some parts that are tricky because there are parts with gravel. You will find hikers so be careful when bombing down sections.

Review: Pretty good trail for locals. Short. Less than 3.5 miles. It is Flowy. Directional depending on day. I wouldn't drive out of your way to ride. Much better options close to Chattanooga. Raccoon or Tanasi

Review: This trail system just recently reopened after a complete rework by SORBA. While is is a small trail system, it packs in a variety of terrain types, from easy rolling trail to steep, tight switchbacks that will get your heart racing.

A lot of the trails are dug out of the side of the ridge, and therefore have some substantial drop offs that caused me to pucker up a couple times due to my overconfidence. The downhill sections with the drop offs right next to the trail are quite exhilarating, at least for me, with plenty of opportunities to catch air and just ride as fast as you can. I don't know if it will change with time, but right now the trails are mostly free of roots, but with use that could change.

The uphills suck. But what goes up must come down, and that makes these trails worth the burning leg muscles.

You can cover everything here in an hour and a half. But it's great location just a few minutes downtown makes it a great option for people after work who want to get a ride in before they get home. I'll be visiting these trails many times in the future.

Review: Rode this trail system yesterday, great place to train. Lot of climb, very little flow. Sorba is working it right now so in the future should be alot better. Will ride again I'm sure.

Review: Right now this place isn't worth it, but SORBA is planning on building some great purpose-built MTB trails here. Once completed, this will be a great place for close-to-town riding. At the moment, though, the trails aren't all that fun to ride.

Review: Trails are pretty beat up after all the storms here in area. All the technical aspects have been damaged by fallen trees. Place needs work.
