Kingsport Greenbelt

Very pretty along creek & river

October, 2023 by wmtxby8b6h

Only got to do half the trail due to weather conditions, but what we saw was very scenic, wooded & well kept & clean.

Tweetsie Trail

Very pretty & gorgeous rock tunnel !!

October, 2023 by wmtxby8b6h

This trail was just gorgeous, well kept, & clean. The first half was very wooded and scenic. The second half was thru the town congested and had lots of streets and lights to go thru. We enjoyed it because we wanted to see what the town had business wise.

Mendota Trail

October Fall Ride

October, 2023 by rigiddishjr

We had rode the trail several times from both ends before it was completed. Finally got to ride the last section that was opened and what a delight is was to enjoy, Rode from Mendota to Benhams and back and thoroughly enjoyed it. We definitely think the northern part of the trail is the best part. Thanks to all who worked so diligently to get this trail done.

Mendota Trail

disappointing

September, 2023 by joglazewski

Wasn’t sure what to expect after reading the reviews, and heard that the entire trail was open. Rode my hybrid with 38 mm tires. First .6 mile was smooth, wide, asphalt. Surface changed to ballast , following natural grade , including roots, old rails and ties. and natural dirt single track. Did follow wooded setting .

Mendota Trail

Rapidly becoming my favorite trail in the area.

September, 2023 by mobitri

I've had the privilege of enjoying many rides along The Mendota Trail, and each one has been an absolute delight. This trail offers a mesmerizing blend of natural beauty that never fails to leave me in awe.

The trail is accessible to all, making it a wonderful place for people of all ages and abilities to enjoy.

Mendota Trail

Gorgeous Ride

September, 2023 by lisamartel27

We biked the trail September 3, 2023 and the center section was complete. We started in Bristol and enjoyed every mile. Shaded, gorgeous scenery, interesting areas to view and we loved the trestles. We were unsure how far the ride was so we turned around at mile 9 and returned to Bristol. This would be stunning with the leaves turning. We’ll be back!

Mendota Trail

The whole 12.5 miles is open

September, 2023 by pyattjm

The entire trail is finished! It’s super shady. We rode from Bristol to Mendota and back. Coming back it’s a steady climb for about 6 miles. Parts of it will beat you up without suspension. There’s a cute store/eatery on the Mendota side. On the Bristol side there are bathrooms that should open soon.

Wilderness Road Trail

Very nice trail!

September, 2023 by mandy.smith2020

This is one of the best trails we have ever went on. It is a beautiful, flat, easy, shaded trail. SO much history. Stop at the park and check out the fort, they have people in there dressed up and making things. Very neat to see! There are picnic tables along the trail if you want to pack a lunch. There is also a buffalo viewing area. I can’t say enough good things about this trail. My group loved it!

Erwin Linear Trail

needs updated

August, 2023 by eulermath87

This trail has a lot of potential but it needs to be updated. The asphalt has so many buckles and is dangerous because many people have tripped and fallen. The bridge has been closed for over a year with no promise of upgrades. Therefore one begins on the trail then gets on a road for half a mile and back on trail.

Erwin Linear Trail

Awesome trail!!!

July, 2023 by youncesarah

Very pleasant trail (bike riders). Was bumpy but would take that for asphalt any day. A little narrower than others but still very doable. Excellent scenery and moderate rise and falls. Will definitely do this again! 4.5 stars.

Erwin Linear Trail

Nice trail!

July, 2023 by thomascronshaw01

I loved the winding nature and the beautiful scenery! Only downside was very bumpy areas where the pavement came up. But loved the ride!

Kingsport Greenbelt

Nice Trail

June, 2023 by hippykamp

Asphalt trail that runs along the river and through the city of Kingsport. Easy to navigate and ride with just a few places that interact with traffic. We generally see several folks on the trail so keep your head up and enjoy
