Temps are dropping overnight, and that means the freeze-thaw cycle is back. Our more weather-resilient trails at Sharps Ridge and Loyston Point should be good to go, but other trails might require a few hours of drying in the morning after a frost. Please be conscious of this during the colder months, and stay off muddy trails!
This summer, we took an epic mountain bike road trip, stringing together three different Eastern Tennessee trail networks in three days. Between Knoxville, Windrock Bike Park, and Johnson City, there were a wide variety of options for every type of rider. Here’s Part One, showing where to ride in Knoxville, TN…
Dove season began at Forks of the River WMA on September 1. Perimeter trails (Whaley/Bluff by the river and West Perimeter) are OPEN to cyclists/foot traffic, but please avoid the inner trails at Forks. Give hunters their space (their permits pay for the management of the land we share!) and please don’t get yourself shot. Trails will reopen to all users in May 2020.
