The Drop Inn trails are open! In July 2022, we launched just over 2 miles of trails on the property. Experiences range from a chill campground loop to downhill bombers and connector trails that link you to the heart of the Urban Wilderness. We’re right down the hill from the Year Round Get Down and Red Bud Crest, where you can cross the bridge to access the magic of Baker Creek Preserve and Baker Creek Bottoms.Knoxville Urban Wilderness Mountain Biking Trails
Detailed Trail Information
The Campground Connector trail will be your way to get from one end of the property to the other. Gravel reinforced, multi-directional, and multi-use; this short meandering trail will go from the bottom of Toll Road in Marie Myers, to the bottom of Rendezvous at The Drop Inn Property. This is a great trail for a calm walk or a short ride to connect with the trails at Baker Creek.
Murphy’s Law is a black diamond downhill trail with big jumps, drops, and gaps. Tight corners, high berms, and air time are the name of the game on this one, so picking your line and committing are key. The bottom of the trail is sculpted into a special area for showcasing skills and tricks, with three jumps designed for perfecting your craft. All trails end on the Campground Connector, which takes you back to climb Rendezvous or the Toll Road.
Murphy’s Law is named after our dear friend and neighbor Murphy Dinkins. If you have met this girl, you know circumstances can go from very chill to a little wild in a split second–much like this trail!.
Rendezvous is the top and bottom meeting point. The trail gets its name from a gondola in Jackson Hole, WY, a place dear to our hearts. The way this trail calmly climbs is like a gondola, so you can enjoy a few laughs and a chat with your friends on the way up. Rendezvous features long, flowy berms with a mellow grade, making this an easy climb and a fun descent. The trail goes from the Red Bud Crest pedestrian bridge to the bottom of Campground Connector. Session The Drop Inn and Year Yound Get Down, or take it over to Baker Creek. This will be your new favorite way up to Marie Myers!
Soup’s On is our way of saying “game on” or “go time!” Things start to get creative and more advanced here–keep your eyes peeled for extra credit jumps and lines. Everything is rollable, but options are there to get sideways if your heart desires. This is a trail with rock-armored jumps and berms, perfect for getting accustomed to riding the flagstone found at The Drop Inn. There are multiple session points throughout the trail so you can build your own adventure!
Who Built the Trails?
The dirt work at The Drop Inn is one-of-a-kind! Our friends at Ide Ride Trailbuilders built trails that we can ride year-round. By mixing fine gravel with the native soil, they were able to create something that is hardened with great traction. It’s mostly rideable any time of year, no matter what the weather might bring.
