If any of you folks ever venture over to the Passion Forum you might know me as the trail building, race promoting, sometimes Sport Racer from ND who rambles on about how he misses riding Appalachian trails. As the snows start to swirl here in ND, I am feeling than pain of separation from my favorite trails even more. So, here is my request.
I would like you all to take pictures of people riding trails in E. TN. Please post them in the Passion Forum, or just post them in this thread here. I will probably link to it anyway. There are two trails in particular that I love and miss over all others in the region. They are:
Panther Creek St. Park close to Morristown, TN. This place has about 10 or 11 miles of trail. My personal favorite sections are Trout Lilly (a rather twisty loop with a pretty technical rock section near the lake), Pioneer loop (the biggest climb in the park with some rolling stuff near the end that will really work you if you ride it clockwise), Deer Run (an absolute roller coaster of a ride that you can hammer but watch for hikers on this trail), and Outer Farm loop (a twisty rollercoaster with some wicked roots that try to buck you off your bike).
Haw Ridge near Knoxville, TN. This place rocks! It's all good. There is just too much nice stuff out there to single any of it out. This place was over an hour from my house, but I would gladly make the drive any chance that I got. Haw Ridge made me a better technical rider. I love it, and I miss it.
I never took any photos of riding at either of these places. What a doofus was I. So please, please, if you don't mind, could you guys and gals go ride these wonderful trails and take some photos of yourselves, your freinds, your neighbors kids, I don't care on them? I promise you that while I am the one asking the favor, if you do this you will be the ones receiving the reward.
