“A great short ride in West Knox County.”— Wes Soward
There are some cool features like the berms and wall ride on Middle East as well as a couple of nice log rides on the west loop to add a little variety.
The park is popular with trail runners, hikers, and folks walking their dogs as well, so be mindful of the other trail users that you may encounter.

The East side can be linked together by generally riding in a loop. One option is to start from the kiosk and follow the trail up to the main trail take the first right and then a immediate left up the hill. This is part of the main loop and will get your legs going off the start. Stay on this trail or follow golf view to the right which will re-intersect about a quarter mile up the trail.
Past the intersection with Golf, the trail will start down a fall line trail. Be on the lookout for a right hand turn onto Middle East. Follow through some fast buffed out trail to the intersection of Orient, where you'll take a right. Continue up and over the top of the eastern side of the park for a fun downhill and some shoreline trail. When you reach an intersection along the lake, stay left on Orient and continue through the undulating terrain back up and over with a climb back up to the top. Once you begin descending again bear to the right back on Middle East and enjoy the berm turns, log ride, and the wall ride near the end of the trail.
At the bottom of the trail, turn left staying on Middle east until you climb up to an intersection with Lake Loop. Take Lake Loop and you'll follow along the lake with a couple of nice views out over the cove and marina. Continue along Lake Loop and once you climb back
up from the lake through a short steep gully, look for a left turn to remain on Lake Loop. Follow this to the the end and continue to Inner Loop, riding clockwise. This will wind up and down over the next mile and a half and deposit you back onto mainline where you'll take a left and follow the trail back out to your car.
It's worthwhile to take a look at the map and see how you might want to interconnect these short loop sections. Every rider that you talk to will most likely have their own approach.
