Mountain Biking Buzzard's Bluff

*   Add a review
#162 of 195 mountain bike trails in Tennessee
#11384 in the world

The trail is used mainly for 4X4 enthusiasts. There aren't a lot of climbs and the technicality of the ride is more directed at not submersing yourself or your bike in the mud-filled chasms left by the 4X4s. It's a fast ride, for the most part. There are some areas with rock navigation. The trail runs along the top of Walden Ridge (the western border of the Tennessee Valley). There are some side branching fire roads that are graveled, but offer little in the way of excitement. The meat of this ride is the view from Buzzard's Bluff. About four miles or so in, there is a side road to the right. If you follow it out a bit, you will come to an outcropping that overlooks the Tennessee Valley. It's spectacular.

    The Locals have trashed the entrance with Trash that has been Shot up with Shotguns. Hundreds of spent shells all over the ground. Trail is torn up bad by 4 wheel drives. Lots of loose sand and loose rocks. One good overlook about .7 miles up mud pits. I was not impressed Don't Wast your time on this trail. It's not worth it.
