Mountain Biking Advanced Loop

****   Add a review
#25 of 196 mountain bike trails in Tennessee
#1,363 in the world

The Advanced Loop is a combination of hand and machine built trail that utilizes the natural terrain to provide a ride that focuses on reading the trail, and the ability to put down power while exercising some pretty serious bike handling skills. Rocks, drops, banked turns, offset run-ins, and tight turns provide a variety of fun and challenges.

    This is a very nice trail right in Clarksville. It has been lengthened over the past few years and is well marked and well maintained. I just finished a ride and it took about 45 minutes at a moderate pace. I will definitely look to ride this trail when I visit family in Clarksville. It has a little bit of everything and is fun for novice as well as more advanced riders.

    A good little trail to mountain bike after work. It has a good amount of rock gardens which adds a little challenge. Not really worth driving over an hour for but if you are nearby like me then its a great place to bike.

    I love this trail. My rider level is on the lower end of intermediate, so this trail really tested my skills. Very fun obstacles, switchbacks, rock gardens, all the works. A lot of work has been put into this trail and it definitely shows

    Great new trail for the Clarksville area. Just off the Greenway if you do not want to go to Ford Street trailhead. I don't like trailhead location (you have to drive through a rough neighborhood).
    Trail is really fast and takes advantage of the terrain with several rocky areas and jumps. Fast and Fun trail!

    Great trail, I've put almost 1000 miles on it since I started riding last summer.

    Good short trail with a big upside once the rest of the trails are completed. The trail has a cool little rock garden and some nice WHOOP-DE-DOOS. In the future I hope they add more jumps and some banked turns. This is a great trail for an after work ride when you don't have a whole day to spend biking.

    WARNING: Biased Review. Consider this more "informational" than a real review. I'm the primary builder on this trail, so ...reader beware, or whatever.

    This trail is part of an expanding system in this park. The city has 90 acres of land to work with, and wanted mountain bike trails, so the goal was to use the natural terrain to dictate trail features, not dictate trail features to the terrain.

    Climbing is moderate, with varying grades. Turns range from primitive and off camber to large berms, from near impossibly tight, to fast and open.

    There are no bridges. Lots of crossings, run-ins, G-outs and fun stuff, but no bridges.

    Currently the Loop is 1.5 miles with a .25 mile connector to the parking lot. The loop is directional by day.

    An additional .5 mile section of loop will open soon. When completed, the Advanced loop will be 5-6 miles, with a total of 8-9 miles in the park, including the easy and intermediate trails that will be built when the Advanced loop is done.

    This park is MTB only, and doesn't allow hiking, horses, or ATVs.
