Mountain to Town
Outdoor Chattanooga’s Mountain to Town Bike Adventure is a guided downhill mountain bike ride that highlights the scenic trails atop Lookout Mountain and how they connect to the Tennessee Riverwalk all the way to downtown Chattanooga!
Join us for this all-inclusive, beginner friendly adventure, which begins with a shuttle ride to the top of Lookout Mountain. Our experienced guide staff will provide ride support and instruction during the downhill ride. Use one of our mountain bikes or bring and use your own bike.
Enjoy breathtaking views of the city while cruising down the beginner-friendly Guild Trail, comprised of tightly packed gravel, until it connects with the paved trails of the Tennessee Riverwalk in St. Elmo. From there, the scenic and leisurely paced bike ride will continue along the shores of the Tennessee River back into downtown where we started the adventure at Outdoor Chattanooga in Coolidge Park. Participants will descend nearly 1,500 ft and only climb 340 ft over the 13-mile ride. Ride time is approximately 2 hours.
This family-friendly adventure is appropriate for ages 12 and up. Riders must be able to independently ride, shift, maneuver, and operate a bike with hand brakes, listen and follow instructions and be able to make decisions quickly while moving at higher speeds in order to participate in this adventure. See our Learn to Ride a Bike Class to learn these skills.
Cost: $25 per person includes bike, helmet, transportation, guide staff and ride support. Reservations required in advance.
