Tanasi Trails (Cherokee National Forest, Mountain Bike)

From 3+ mile climbs to rolling trails by the beautiful Ocoee River, the Tanasi Trail system has it all. Be sure to check out the Brush Creek trail located just east of the Ocoee Whitewater Center. If one day of riding at the Tanasi Trail system isn’t enough for you, then be sure to pitch a tent or park your RV at Thunder Rock Campground, just west of the Ocoee Whitewater Center.

Want to make your ride easier and more fun? Consider an electric bike. Asheville-based M2S Bikes offers a wide range of electric bikes that can help you climb hills faster and easier while still getting a great workout.
