I visited this trail during a business trip to Knoxville in May 2017. I brought my bike along for the trip in case I would have an opportunity to ride the local trails; however, I was not aware it would rain the entire week. This is the only trail I was able to ride during my visit. I hate to provide a negative review, but I was not impressed with this trail. I could see it had potential, but it was neglected, overgrown and the lake loop was covered in trash and smelt of dead fish. Many trails were washed out, but not unrideable, and the roots were awful. It was not a pleasurable experience. It is a convenient location that is easily accessible, which is always a plus in my book. The park had everything from biking, hiking, a dog park, a restaurant, and fishing. I give it good rating for the idea, but the condition could be better. I briefly rode the trails on the west side of the park. They seemed to be better maintained, or just less used.
