Mountain biking is a natural fit for Knoxville's hilly terrain, and riders now have 3.5 more miles of new, wooded trails to enjoy thanks to the Appalachian Mountain Bicycle Association's hard work at William Hastie Park. The group logged more than 1,000 labor hours at the 75-acre site this winter, cutting trails that are suitable for hiking, trail running and mountain biking .Working with the Lake Forest Neighborhood Association, Parks and Recreation continues to look at ways to make this public wilderness more friendly.
Though the trails were built by mountain bikers, these trails are very appropriate for hiking this beautiful escape to nature.
