“A great short ride to get the most out of Baker Creek Preserve.”— Jeb Brown
Family Friendly There is a play area at the bottom of the trail system. Wheelchair access on Baker Creek Trail.
Now get ready for some airtime on Barn Burner (Downhill). After the last large hip-jump on Barn Burner (Downhill), use the Floyd Fox connector to Sycamore Loop. From there, take Sycamore Loop clockwise to Best Medicine.
Turn on Pappy's Way after the first big switchback. FYI- Pappy's Way gets steep then steeper. Enjoy the view from Pappy's Point and maybe do a quick session of the top of Devil's Racetrack Downhill before descending the fast flow of Devil's Racetrack Downhill.
Best Medicine (downhill) is a great alternative for people comfortable going fast downhill, wanting something different than the often crowded Cruze Valley Run (Downhill) and Barn Burner (Downhill), but not ready to give the speed needed for Devil's Racetrack Downhill.
From the bottom of Devil's Racetrack Downhill, you can make your way to the nearby parking and play areas, head back up Redbud Crest for another lap, or journey into Knoxville's Urban Wilderness.
