            Bike trails in Gatlinburg Tennessee - Mountain Biking and Bike Rental 

Bicycles can travel on most roads within the park. The Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail is the exception. The Foothills Parkway provides good biking opportunities.

Cyclists may traverse the parkway's unfinished portions.

Cades Cove offers another great riding opportunity. The l

oop road periodically closes to motorized vehicles. It

will close to motor vehicle traffic from May-September

until 10 a.m. each Wednesday and Saturday. Bike rental

is available in the Cove. For more information call (865)

No mountain biking trails are available. A few graveled trails,

including the Gatlinburg Trail and Oconaluftee River Trail, allow

bicycles. For more extensive mountain biking opportunities, visit

the Tsali Recreation Area near Fontana Village, NC, or take a trip

to Big South Fork National Recreation Area. 

Safety is always a major concern where cars and bicycles must share the road. Please wear helmets, use rear view mirrors, and follow all traffic regulations.
