19 Miles / 2000 Feet of Climbing

Experience the Tennessee River Gorge from the water's edge and from a mountain-top vista on this unique ride that includes a lap around a mountain-top lake!

Potential Route Modifications: You can shorten the route and avoid riding on Cummings Highway by starting at the Raccoon Mountain River Trailhead parking lot, which reduces the route to 12.3 miles but still includes the climb. You can also skip the climb and start at the Raccoon Mountain Visitors Center on top of the mountain and do laps around the lake. Each lap is roughly 4.5 miles.
