Local Mountain Bike Trails

Holston Creek Park

The Holston Creek Mountain Bike Trail was created using modern trail building methods and with the beginning mountain biker in mind. Every feature on the trail is able to be ridden by any skill level. Often feeling like a roller coaster, our trail will leave you wanting to ride more and more, while building confidence in yourself.
