Mountain Biking in Gatlinburg TN

climb-worksAny age, any level of rider could ride Climbworks Gatlinburg Mountain Biking Course. It’s built for everyone to enjoy.

The bikes are well maintained, and great models for general riders.

The trail is well laid out, can be fun for experienced riders, but very doable for beginners.

The uphill is a gradual climb (about a half a mile uphill), and before you realize it, you are at the top ready for the intense ride down. It’s well designed with many banked corners for maximum speed. The best part is the wooden loop that you think is at the bottom; however, there are still some intense curves that await you after that.

The loop is well designed for newcomers and experienced riders alike. Your speed determines how technical your ride will be and the track is nice and wide, with very few snags or rocks to trip you up. It was obvious how much thought went into creating the loop and the wooden spiral burm is a blast.

Staff are all very friendly.  They have plans to buy surrounding land and expand their biking. Well worth checking out if you’re in the area and need to bike, or just want to try it. The current loop is just shy of 2 miles long.

There website says you do not need to be in shape.  But, this is 3.5 -4 hours of mountain biking.  You definitely need coordination.
