A good 14 mile loop at Coldwater Mountain. Start at the official Trailhead, ride the bears, then climb up Cassidy. Cut over to go down Trillium. Time for some more climbing. Come back up Chilowhee and Rock Slot, finish with some awesome Bomb Dog.

This is a cross country trail not a downhill trail. There's a couple of rocky drops at the beginning, middle is flowy and fun through the forest, and the end is cross country climbing. It's an okay trail, but I'm used to enduro and downhill trails though.

Meh. It's ok. A few berms but not any features. Not worth the climb on the last half to me. (I like chunky trails though).

This site says, “No e-bikes.” There are no signs on site that restrict e-bikes (class 1 pedal assist).
Fun downhill with a pretty lookout point midway.

Amazeballs. One of the best flow trails I've ever ridden. Fast and playful with small rollers.
