Over 30 miles of the area's best mountain biking singletrack can be easily accessed, just 15 minutes east of downtown, at Raccoon Mountain.

Raccoon Mountain is an extensive, yet newer system of singletrack that circle the TVA Raccoon Mountain pumped storage facility, just 15 minutes east of downtown. The 30 miles of trails primarily span from intermediate to advanced levels, but a few beginner friendly routes can be found as well.

Grab your bike (or rent one from one of the many shops around Chattanooga) and head up to the mountain's East Overlook parking lot for scenic views of the area and for access to a multitude of runs.

Be sure to bring a Trail Map.
