Mountain Biking Chinquapin Ridge Trail

***   Add a review
#86 of 199 mountain bike trails in Tennessee

This is a great trail located in the heart of Fall Creek Falls State Park. It has some moderate climbs but also has nice downhills that follow. There are some extended trails that are connected to the main trail and can be very interesting because the condition of these trails are always unpredictable.

    I rode this trail on my Gravel bike last weekend and really enjoyed it. Video review available on YouTube for anyone that would like to see the terrain.

    Fun trail in Fall Creek Falls State Park. The trail is mainly double track (an old jeep road) that is overgrown with moderate climbs and quick rewarding downhills. There is a bridge and creek crossing. The Upper Loop Trail can be accessed off of this trail also. Beautiful ride in the fall! Will ride again.

    This trail is out and back at the start, with a loop at the back. It's mostly overgrown double track, but more fun than the other trail in this State Park. Lots of small branches hidden under leaves.
