Mountain Biking Chilhowee trail system

****   Add a review
#7 of 203 mountain bike trails in Tennessee
#225 in the world

This network has it all. I'm not sure how many miles, but anyone will enjoy these trails from the beg. rider to the expert. Trails are Benton Falls Trail, Rimrock Trail, Slickrock Trail, Clear Creek Trail, Red Leaf Trail, Azalea Trail, Arbutus Trail and the Clemmer Trail. Only experts should ride the Clear Creek Trail. Some spots are very dangerous. The Clemmer is a difficult 4 mile up hill climb, but worth it when you get to the top. I like to ride up Clemmer to the campground and then Azalea to Clear Creek to Rimrock and down Clemmer. Or Clemmer to the campground and then Slickrock and down Clemmer. Whatever route you take get off your bike and hike down to Benton Falls. It is worth the time. You can also ride some old roads around the mountain. This area has everything!
