  • As a family, we don't come here often enough! The park is huge! And there are pretty decent mountain biking trails for all levels of bikers. There are so many trails that vary in distance and...  more »
  • If you want to know how to create a park that can be enjoyed by people of all ages/abilities, come here. Fun hiking trails (hint: if you go further out, you'll experience more solitude!), sweet mountain biking trails (including a kids track), nice, car-free "roads" for road bikes and easy walking, historical exhibits, quiet picnic areas, equestrian trails, and a scenic driving loop. No, there aren't a lot of incredible views or lakes and streams like some of the other trails near Chattanooga. These are simple, fun trails. Yes, you have to get a map (especially if it's your first time in the park!). It is easy to get "turned around" if you go further into the park. The multiple, numbered storage bunkers are helpful if you do get lost. Yes, do check the hours before coming. They change frequently, based on daylight. Yes, you can bring your dog (on a leash). There's water available, flush toilets and outhouses.
  • Went to mountain bike and while the trails are really nice and not too strenuous, there are too many people who visit there. I don't like riding with people behind me because as a novice biker I feel like I am constantly getting in the way of other people on the trails. My main concern was the texture of the trails and how loose they are from the sheer number of people turning up the dirt there. It is extremely easy to lose control of your bike due to sliding and it prevents you from really enjoying the flow of the trail the way I would have liked to. That being said, there are sections of the trails that are packed red clay that are extremely nice to ride and the scenery is very enjoyable throughout the ride. I'd recommend if the park is close to you and you have the time for a quick ride.
