Mountain Biking Lone Mountain

*****   Add a review
#44 of 195 mountain bike trails in Tennessee
#2898 in the world

The trails are horse/bike trails. They are not for the faint of heart. It is best to go during dryer weather due to hills that become very muddy. Most of the main trail is climbable except for 1 or 2 hills. Dont kid yourself, start out slow. You will need the energy later. About 2/3 of the way up there are trail signs. If you want to go to top, take Coyote Point. There is another trail at the sign witch goes down to a gravel road. I suggest asking a ranger for directions before getting off of the main trail. Any way you go down is very fast and challanging. You may need to change your diaper.

    The Lone Mountain ride is outstanding. Starting at the foot of the mountain, the trail immediately begins to climb. The trail initially is sand with a fair amount of larger sandstone gravel/rock, but becomes more compact as you climb. There are several challenging climbs, the most grueling of which seems almost vertical. This climb is practically impossible if there is any significant moisture, as a spring crosses the trail about midway up making for a fair amount of mud. Ultimately, the climb to the top takes a long time, but is well worth it as you go out on a saddle to Coyote Point. The view is great. Coming back down the back of the loop is fast early, but becomes more technical with larger stones and a creek crossing that can be treacherously slick. At the bottom of the back side, there is a logging road that you follow back to a gate near the gravel road. The reentry of the trail is to the right and is single track. This is a very technical portion with a lot of switchbacks and difficult climbing. Near the top of the climb, it is very difficult to stay on the bike. The trail then comes back into the initial trail going up to Coyote Point. If you go back to the left, you will head back to the beginning, allowing for a good, less strenuous end to one of the best rides available.
