Great Smoky Mountains National Park is proposing a Mountain Bike Trail system within the Foothill Parkway Section 8D corridor in Wears Valley, Sevier County, Tennessee.
While more than 800 miles of trails exist in the Park, less than 8 miles are open to biking and there are no by-design mountain biking trails. Most of the Park's trails are in areas managed as wilderness where bikes are not permitted. The Foothills Parkway corridor, which is within the Park's transportation management zone and is not managed as wilderness, could provide visitors new opportunities to experience the park through mountain biking.
Two, two-hour virtual meetings have been scheduled for 7/28 and 7/30. Both will begin at 5:00 PM. For more information, and to participate in the meetings, please click here.
The comment period for this project closes on Aug 19, 2020. For more information on the project, and to comment, please click here.
