Difficulty Level: Moderate

Trail Length: 1.1m

Location: Toddy Mountain

Features: Trail 4 is one the Park’s original trails and has been in place for over 15 years! This trail is 1.1 mile long and can be accessed from either Trail G20 or G2. Starting from G20, it is wide and heavily traveled and offers a couple of brief clearings in the trees to the south with a view of Walden’s Ridge and the Smoky Mountains. There is one natural gas well near the beginning of the trail. Once past the well, the trail gets more narrow and muddy. A significant portion of this trail follows an old high wall with some impressive rock outcroppings and goes to the bottom of a small waterfall. There are numerous mud holes and some very shady, cool spots for summertime riding! The trail ends at the intersection of trails G2 and G39 at Silvey Gap. Directions: From the WindRock Park Trail-head, go straight up P1 to Rattle Rock and stay straight when the road turns to gravel onto G2. You will pass G5 on the left and continue up the mountain to your next cut off to the left, which will be G20. Follow G20 past G37 to your first right, which will be the beginning of Trail 4. If you wish to start at the other end of Trail 4, continue up G2 past the cutoff for G20 and continue to the next left.
T4

Difficulty Level: Most Difficult

Trail Length: 2.1m

Location: Little Fodderstock Mountain

Features: This trail climbs around Little Fodderstack Mountain. Little Fodderstuck got its name from the difficulties in trail construction. The bulldozer got stuck three different times while the trail was being constructed. There is great scenery along the trail with cliffs, waterfalls, rock overhangs (Jaba Point) and a scenic overlook (Jane’s Overlooks) facing toward Big Fodderstack Mountain. This trail is rated most difficult due to some steep climbs and a few ruts & off camber spots. T-49 makes it possible to make some nice loop rides if you include other trails such as T6, T42, or T48. Directions: From the WindRock Park Trail-head, follow P1 to G2. Once on G2, go approximately ¼ mile and turn left onto G5. Follow G5 for 2.5 miles to end and bear right onto G6. Stay on G6 for approximately .75 mile and turn left onto Trail 42. Follow Trail 42 for approximately .5 mile and Trail 49 will turn off to the right.
T49

Difficulty Level: Difficult

Trail Length: 3.4m

Location: Walden Ridge

Features: Trail 75 is a multi-use trail open to all vehicles. Trail construction was done by both WindRock Park employees and local volunteers and follows the route of an old hiking trail named the Cumberland Trail. Trail 75 is 3.4 miles in length and can be accessed from Walden Ridge Road or Highway 116 near Trail 74. The trail can be ridden in either direction, but most riders start on the south end on Walden Ridge Road and head north. The trail follows the ridge line with several difficult areas of sandstone rocks and ledges. Some areas are fairly narrow and only cut wide enough to get a full-sized vehicle through, adding to the challenge. There are several scenic overlooks along the trails that have good views of Pilot Mountain and Red Oak Mountain on one side, and Dutch Valley on the other. Directions: From the WindRock Park Trail-head, take Hoskins Gap Road (road at the south end of the main parking lot) to the end, and take a left on Frost Bottom Road (Highway 330) and travel about 6 miles. Take a right on Walden Ridge Road and follow it all the way to the top of the mountain and the trail entrance will be on the left at the top. Some riding on public roads is required to access Trail 75, so it is recommended that vehicles be street legal.

Difficulty Level: Difficult

Trail Length: 2.2m

Location: Beech Grove/Vowell Mountain

Features: Trail 72 is a multi-use trail open to all vehicles. The trail was opened in 2012 and was reworked by the WindRock Park Trail Crew. Trail 72 is 2.2 miles in length and can be accessed from Trail G55 or G52. The trail can be ridden either direction, but most riders start on the north (lower) end and ride south up the mountain. From the north end, the trail starts off as an old gravel road which leads to the trail. The trail will go all the way to the head of Beech Grove Fork then cross the main creek. From there, the trail gets steeper and winds its way to the top of Vowell Mountain near the Cumberland View Missionary Baptist Church (commonly referred as the Old Swag Church). There are several difficult, rocky areas and very steep hills. Most difficult sections have by-pass routes if the easier way is your preference. Directions: From the WindRock Park Trail-head, take P1 to G1 and follow G1 all the way to the intersection of G1 and Highway 116.  Cross Highway 116 to G50.  Turn left onto Trail 50 and follow it out until it intersects with G53.  Cross G53 to Trail 53.  Follow Trail 53 to the end and take a right on G55 and follow it almost to the bottom of the mountain.  Trail 72 will be on the right about 0.25 miles before the bottom of the mountain.

Difficulty Level: Moderate

Trail Length: 3.3m

Location: Between G9 & T12

Features: Trail 13 is a multi-use trail open to all OHV’s. Most of the trail has been in place as either a road or rail bed since the early 1900′s.  It is a scenic trail with a total length of 3.3 miles. It runs between Trail G9, passing Trail 34 and 12 along the way. Trail 13 is fairly tight and narrow in places and passes many points of interests along the way. Some of those include several beaver ponds, sections of rocky high-walls, a waterfall and numerous old mine openings. On a portion of the trail you can still see cross-ties in the rail bed. Sometimes in the evening, you may catch a glimpse of a beaver working on its dam. There are numerous mud and water holes along the trail. This trail is on the north side of the mountain and tends to wetter, get more snow in the winter and be cooler in summer. Since this trail goes to the property line, it makes it necessary to either take Trail 12 (Trail 12 is a Difficult Trail) or return the same way you came in. If you have the necessary permit for the State property, it is possible to loop around to the opposite end of Trail 12 and reenter the Park there. Directions: From the WindRock Park Trail-head, take either Trail 2 or P1 to G1 and go north east to G9. Turn left onto G9 and follow it straight onto Trail 13.
