Mountain Biking Montgomery Bell State Park Mtb Trail

****   Add a review
#26 of 203 mountain bike trails in Tennessee
#1,210 in the world

This trail is now open after 10 years of intense volunteer effort and has something to offer for every level of rider.The 25 mile trail is all singletrack that follows the natural contours of the rolling and sometimes steep hardwood forest. There is a beautiful spring fed creek that you will overlook in many sections as well as lots of wildlife. The trail consists of five sections identified by color code and lots of easy to read signs at all intersections. They are White (beginner), Blue (intermediate), Red/perimeter (intermediate/advanced), Yellow (advanced), and the Downhill section which is very challenging with deep drops,moguls, and bridges (advanced only!). All sections are rideable by any level of rider but are designated here as to their respective level of difficulty. All sections have some combination of climbs long and short, drop ins, creek crossings, rocks, and other types of natural obstacles. You will definitely have lots of choices depending upon your ability level!

The park observes a temporary closure period off and on during the months of Jan/Feb/March because of freeze/thaw conditions and has a trail condition number (615-797-9051 ext 18) that you can call before coming. The rule is that if it is below 32 degrees and the ground is frozen then it is ok to ride. Please be advised that there is a stiff fine ($165.00) if the policy is abused. You will also need to pay a $3 day use fee at the trailhead site or you can opt for the year round pass at $40 (available at the main park office only!) which goes directly back into the park for upkeep and maintainence. If you are interested in becoming involved in the ongoing trail work, please contact the park office or and become a volunteer. Enjoy your ride!
