Bicycling is a freewheeling way to explore Tennessee’s great outdoors.
Bikers will thrill to the 185-mile Mississippi River Trail, which runs from wildlife-rich Reelfoot Lake to Memphis. Take a ride along the Highland Rim. Roll through our rural, relaxing mid-section, the Heartland. Roads and scenic highways surrounding Lake Watauga, in Northeast Tennessee, have been named among the best biking routes in the country.
Chickasaw State Park has bike trails open year round. A paved bike trail carries you through the woods where you can spot wildlife in David Crockett State Park. Booker T. Washington State Park, in East Tennessee, harbors a single-track, 6-mile loop trail, with some long uphill climbs and fast downhills. Warriors’ Path State Park hosts an enjoyable paved path around Duck Island.
