Overview

The Watershed Trails are a fun network of easy, intermediate, and difficult singletrack tucked away in the middle of Hampton, TN. The trails traverse dramatic terrain through beautiful forest with both mountain and river views. The lower loops are great for beginner to intermediate riders, while experts can enjoy themselves on the challenging upper loop known as The Cat's Pajamas.

Description

This ride is a connected system of loops. Although you are right in town, it feels very remote due to the thick foliage and steep terrain.

The lower two loops, including the River Loop, are fairly easy, but the upper loop, The Cat's Pajamas, is double black diamond difficulty. The trails traverse some very steep terrain, even on the River Loop, so be mindful.

Ditto Tracy Payne's comments. Lots downed trees(wrapped in poison Ivy vine!) & very overgrown w/stingweed & briars due to lack of maintenance. I don't think a lot of people ride here or know about this place so it suffers from neglect. I gave up after 5 minutes - not worth it. Used to be one of my favorites. Jul 29, 2018
