TENNESSEE

Rider: Elliot Carter

Trail: Chunky Skills Area, Raccoon Mountain, Tennessee
Photographer: Heather Peterson

The Raccoon Mountain Trail System, high above Chattanooga, Tennessee, offers trail runners the perfect terrain for distance running. The views from along the trail are simply stunning so make sure to stop and take a breather or two and take in the spectacular scenery.

With a variety of trail options and unmatched views of the surrounding mountains, this trail is an example of what can happen when you allow recreational access to public land. It is clean, well used, and represents the nature of the city and surrounding area. This route offers a couple of climbs, rocks, roots, creeks, and a pond.  www.alltrails.com
