Eastern Tennessee invests in more great riding with Tannery Knobs, a bike park situated on 40 acres of heavily wooded terrain that is riding distance from downtown Johnson City's shops, breweries, and restaurants. Designed as a skills park for all ages, riders can experience the thrill of off-road riding in a progressive environment. Ultimately the site will feature everything from rocky gnar to smooth flow, with endless opportunities to develop riders' abilities.

Featuring wide mountain views, the 300'+ ridgeline overlooks the city's historic Appalachian charm. Visitors can enjoy the trails while hiking or trail running, making the park accessible for everyone. The land for Tannery Knobs also sits less than a mile from the newly constructed Tweetsie Trail, connecting Johnson City with nearby Elizabethton.

With many bike parks under their belts, Trail Solutions was brought in to work with the local chapter, SORBA Tri-Cities, as well as the city and local bike shops to transform the landscape into the perfect fit for the community.

Phase 1 is underway, completing approximately 2.5 miles of bike-optimized beginner and intermediate terrain, with more to come. "It's one of the most rewarding little trail systems of my entire 19-year tenure with IMBA," said Trail Solutions' Joey Klein.
