Review: This was the first time my son and I were exposed to some downhill. Great trails. We both had a blast. The trails are well marked and maintained.

Review: Great time! Just visited the AMBC Fest this weekend. Great trails that can handle the rain. Fantastic downhills and plenty of trails to keep you from getting bored!

Review: I made the trip from Cookeville and it was well worth it. The trails are very smooth with very little rock. Barn Burner was closed for maintenance, but Cruze Valley was open and a lot of fun. Red Bud Crest connects with the rest of the Urban Wilderness and access to about 42 miles of trails. Most of the trails are multi-use and I saw a lot of walkers. I will definitely be back.

Review: This is a fantastic trail system. None of the trails are true "down hill trails" as they are are meticulously groomed and completely jumped out, but they are very fun. The clay soil makes it terrible to ride in any wet conditions, and in dry conditions expect a layer of dust over hard pack, but typically provides a fast ride with loads of traction.

I have a hard time wanting to ride anywhere else in the area. The system really succeeds at building skills. Every trail is designed to be ridden without brakes and so as you progress to the more difficult trails your bike will demand different expertise in handling, on the ground, through turns, and in the air. There are also push trails available if you prefer not to climb your bike. Easy access to this park really makes it easy to go jump for an hour after work, or ride into the the surrounding trail network for a much longer and scenic ride.

Almost everything is rollable except on the "Devils Race Track" which is filled with gapped jumps but has bypass areas.

No one should feel intimidated to at least check out these trails. Knoxville also provides a very supportive network of riders who are encouraging to ride with and are excited to see new riders on the trail systems they have worked so hard to develop.

Review: This place is a breath of fresh air for Knoxville. This is the project funded by the winnings from the Bell Grant. The trails are smooth and we'll groomed. The trail system contains a gold "CRUZ" (less difficult), blue "BARN BURNER" (more difficult), and double black diamond "DEVILS RACETRACK" (most difficult) that make up the 3 DH runs. The loops connecting them are great rides as well... complete fun. You park at the lowest elevation of the trail system, so it is a climb to the top of all of the starts, but well worth it. The trails and downhill section are well marked. Tabletop, rollers, berms... oh my.
