Trail Description
About this trail
Actual distance is 4mi of both singletrack and doubletrack marked trail, but lots of connector trails can make for a custom ride once you get to know the place. This is not a system for a casual ride (for most anyway) and rider strength and fitness are recommended to make it fun and not a push ride. The 4 miles consists of two main trails, one called "Bootlegger" and one called "Revenuer" (the property used to have an old time moonshine still located where one trail runs - and its marked on the trail btw). Bootlegger is about 2.25mi and has a spur loop on it called "Thump Keg" that adds .25mi that includes a stout climb and a steep and fast bermed downhill that reconnects back to Bootlegger next to where you got off. Bootlegger starts out kinda steep and climby, then hits a great flow area. Riders encounter a level section next to a small creek bed then some more small climbs lead to a decision point: continue on Bootlegger trail and finish up with that or take the connector trail that leads to the 1.5mi Revenuer. Revenuer can also be accessed directly from the parking area too, just head back to the metal farm gates and look up, you'll see the markers. Once on Revenuer, riders encounter a .25mi switchback climb that leads to a fun and fast rolling descent that leads to the old still site. Riders pay for the descent as a climb up and out is waiting, but another rolling descent comes in and takes riders back to the point where they departed Bootlegger trail. Creek crossing, switch backs, steep short climbs again, then great flow through some doubletrack obstacles mixed with bermed singletrack. A mild climb composes the final .1mi or so, then downhill into the event area where the open air ("Mountain Field Saloon") pavilion awaits below the large parking area.
Trails are well marked with white plastic 4"x4" markers with colored arrows. Neon Green for Bootlegger, Yellow for Thump Keg, and Neon Pink for Revenuer.

Review: A clean and well groomed trail facility, but NOT a casual ride day. Pitchy climbs and fast descents. Significant elevation gains and losses on every trail in the facility.

Review: A well-groomed and clean trail system but difficult terrain grade; not a casual ride. Private property, fee based. www.outdoorsinthesmokies.com to set up a ride.
