Review: Had a fun time, extremely muddy due to all the recent rain but there are enough wider trails and gravel/rock areas to get a ride in.

Review: The worst thing about this trail network is the trails are not identified. It is really easy to get lost and not know where you are. Every time I have been here i have found someone who is lost. On the plus side, it doesn't take long to do all these trails and wonder out. The best map is Elle Colquitt and Livengood's map. With that being said, these are good trails. The trails on the southern side of the network are easy and fairly quick but for those looking for a little adventure take the river bluff trail on the north side. It is much more difficult and has some very steep (although somewhat short) climbs with some great views of the river. There is also some good technical matter to hold your attention. This place doesn't drain well but other trails in the area are worse. This place is well worth exploring. The best time to ride here is the spring time. late in the summer this place is overgrown and some trails can be difficult to follow. This is also a wildlife management area and is closed to all but hunters from Sept 1st to Feb 28th. Check the local hunting schedules.

Review: Trails now marked and ridable. Part of the Urban Wilderness trail system. Some trials have been damaged due to TWRA brush management but trails are good. Overall rocky and dirt single track. some short climbs but relatively flat for the area. Connects to Meade's Quarry and a vast 30 mile system. Check out Knoxville Outdoors (outdoor Center), AMBC or local bike shops for Maps.
