Mountain biking is a natural fit for Knoxville's hilly terrain, and riders will have over four more miles of new, wooded trails to enjoy thanks to the Appalachian Mountain Bicycle Association's winter of hard work at the William Hastie Natural Area. 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.
