Mountain Biking Thunderrock Express

*****   Add a review
#20 of 195 mountain bike trails in Tennessee
#920 in the world

ThunderRock Express is a blazing-fast downhill that is smooth and flowy in spots but pretty chunky and rough in others. Keep a handle on your speed: some sections of this trail get extremely narrow and pretty exposed. But for those who are willing to lay it all out as they shred this descent, the reward is pure ecstasy!

    I rode this on vacation from TX and it was kind of hard to find but eventually got to the trailhead up and then down a Forest Service Road. Parked at the power station and rode up then turn left and down to some trails, about an hour climb. However, the climb was worth it ... fantastic downhill, rocks, roots, narrow trails but VERY doable if you pay attention to what you're doing. I got help with directions from the FSR from a mtn biker and he said this was the best trail in Tanasi. I haven't ridden that many in GA/TN but this was certainly a great trail. I think there may be a junction trail from the FSR to the trailhead but I did not take it and went up the FSR too far, I think. Once done I wanted to do this again but didn't want to do the climb again or possibly get lost on the junction trail. Check with LBS to see if they can tell you more or have a map.

    Terrifying. Hard. You might die. Pray that no one is riding toward you.

    Truly a great reward after climbing through the other trails in the Tanasi system. Fast flowy sections, rooty rocky technical sections, a few small stream crossings, and hang on for dear life fast sections. This trail has it all.

    Are you ready to go balls-out? Because this descent demands it! This really reminded me of the Downieville Downhill in spots.... only, it's just a one-mile segment.
