Mountain Biking Etsu Campus Trail System

****   Add a review
#63 of 199 mountain bike trails in Tennessee
#3,298 in the world

90% singletrack with several switchbacks. Some sections are rooty and rocky in the woods. Major inmprovements over the last two years. Trails are maintained by the ETSU Cycling team and are always cleared right after storms. 3 sections that make a 5.3 mile loop. Read the map at the kiosk and understand how the trail crosses Southwest Ave to get all the 5.3 miles in. The trail system IS OPEN O THE PUBLIC! you do not have to be a part of student, staff or faculty to use the trail. Watch for trail runners that sometimes use the trails please.

    Heavily covered right now with leaves, but made for a fun, slower ride.

    Pretty average trails with some erosions problems

    This is not a beginner trail. Its more of an intermediate and expert trail. ETSU holds a collegiate race every fall so the trails are very well maintained. Ben Appleby overhauled most of the trail system before graduating. The hardest part for a first time rider is knowing how to transition across Southwest Ave to get to the other part of the trails.
