Mountain Biking Camp Meribah Mtb Trails

****   Add a review
#147 of 195 mountain bike trails in Tennessee
#10038 in the world

Camp Meribah is a church camp owned by the Centerville Church of Christ.
There is a perimeter trail that is close to 6 miles that goes around the entire
camp. There is a little bit of everything here and something for every skill level.
There are several steep downhills, rock gardens, drops, etc.. There is always a
beginner's route though to get around these obstacles. It is a challenging
course with several climbs as well, only one real difficult climb. It is a mix of
single track, and a few logging roads. It does present some of the best views
around though, overlooking the Duck River. It also goes through the middle of
the Rock Quarry on the camp property. The trails are open to the public and
there is no cost to ride. Plans are to have a few annual races here as well to
help raise money for Camp Scholarships. There is also lodging available at the
camp. There is a lodge that is similar to a chalet in Gatlinburg that sleeps over
60 people that you can rent for a very reasonable price. For more details on
this, see www.centervillechurchofchrist.org.

    Terrible. The trail isn't marked what so ever. The directions to the trail head didn't help at all. I asked two people that were working on the camp, they gave me two different directions, none of which helped my find the actual trail (unless those terrible logging roads are the trails).

    Some of the logging roads go deep into the woods with zero markings. Centerville makes me feel like I'm going to get stabbed over meth money. So riding deep into the backwoods with no trail markings isn't fun.

    They seriously need to get a sign for the trail head, and some signs on the trail.

    One of the gentlemen pretty much told me he didn't want me riding around. Open to the public is correct, friendly to the public? Nope.

    The camp ground was nicely manicured at least. Waste of a weekend, waste of gas, and waste of my limited riding time.

    Hey at least Chickasaw is close.

    This trail is great for people of all skill levels. It does have a few good climbs, but the downhill sections make up for it. There are a few technical sections, but always a route for beginners too. Awesome scenery along the way. Definitely worth checking out.
