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!

From interstate 75 north of Chattanooga, TN take Cleveland Bypass to 64. 64 takes you to Ocoee lake and past the Ocoee Dam. A couple of miles after the Dam you will see the Ranger station on the left (accross from the lake). Take left after ranger station and follow road up the mountain to the Chilhowee Recreational Area. Trails start from here. Alternate start is past ranger station take 30 and bike parking area is just on the left. This is the start of the Clemmer Trail.
