    Knoxville people

    I live in Sevierville and fairly new to mountain biking. I go to panther creek often but I have heard of a few good trails in Knoxville. I have a few people ready to ride this weekend and we are coming your way. One is really experienced rider and two are moderate. What's the best park we should go to so that everyone will have a good time??

    I've ridden at Climbworks in Gatlinburg and like to go to Ijams quarry in Knoxville. I won't be in town this weekend but I'm sure that there will be people there. I would check it out, I don't think you'll be disappointed.

    Parking at Mead's Quarry just south of Ijam's is a great option, nicknamed the dirty south this trail system has everything to offer. Lots of great singletrack. Also a really handy map at the parking and good trail markings. Go to outdoorknoxville.com for more info.

    I'm new to the area. Do you think with the rain we got yesterday that the trails at Ijams would be o.k. to ride? I don't want to damage the trail.

    The heavily ridden single track trails don't dry very quickly with the humidity, I've give it 2 rain free days. There is some nice green way in the area at ijam's.

    Thanks Gibbsinator! I went to Haw Ridge and the trails were not bad until a big rain came up while I was on the trail. I had an interesting time finding my way out and getting soaked in the process!

    Haw Ridge has a lot to offer. Most trails are pretty heavy with roots and rocks. Good stuff all in all. My fave trails are silo, rainbow, low gap, saddle, south shore, twister, east edge east ridge, old edgemoor and lost but not least washing machine
