The Tennessee River Gorge Trust (TRGT) is thrilled to announce the addition of a new mountain biking trail system in the Tennessee River Gorge to help continue making Chattanooga the best outdoor town around!


This project has been made possible by a generous land donation from Black Creek and funding from the Lyndhurst Foundation, Tower Community Bank, Chattanooga Tourism Co, Rock Creek, International Mountain Biking Association (IMBA), RH Aviation, and Fox Factory.


The first phase of the Aetna Mountain Trails is officially opened as of September 2023 and offers roughly 4 miles of trail.


Upon completion, the trail system will ultimately offer 10+ miles of high-quality singletrack trails atop Aetna Mountain for mountain bikers, hikers, and trail runners.


The trailhead is roughly 0.5 miles up the mountain past 2924 River Gorge Drive. This address for a model home before you reach the trailhead parking lot. Continue up River Gorge Drive until you reach the trailhead parking lot at a hairpin curve.
