Fentress County Tennessee Bike Trails

Collier Ridge Loop

Big South Fork National River & Recreation Area

Beginning from the Bandy Creek Visitor Center the trail starts and finishes on the West Bandy Creek Road.

1.1 miles after leaving the Visitor Center the single track begins, turning left off West Bandy Creek Road. Look for and follow the marker posts.

The single track section features creek crossings, jumps, sandstone climbs and drops, short slalom sections through trees and fast downhill runs.

1.8 miles after leaving West Bandy Creek Road the trail splits offering riders the choice of a novice or advanced section.

If you are not an advanced rider continue straight to Hwy 297, turn right and ride single file near the white line. Look for the marker to turn right back onto the single track.

The advanced ride turns right coming immediately to a sandstone ledge with a steep drop. Beyond this the trail features numerous steep climbs and drops with some sharp turns and log crossings.

Once the two sections rejoin either continue west along Hwy 297 and take the West Bandy Trail (see below) or remain on the Collier Ridge Trail for another 2.3 miles back to the West Bandy Creek Road. Turn right and return to the Visitor Center.
