Ok guys and gals,here's the deal.I'm getting hitched 10/24/07 and have one last chance at freedom,for the bachelor party I have elected to go riding with a group of buddies,of which only half of them have ever ridden bikes outside of their back yard.I've been looking at tellico and coal creek,just found out tellice is booked up for the 1st weekend in october(dixie run),which is the weekend I was planning this soooo...Anybody have any advise on where to stay near coal creek or any other trails in east tn that are a reasonbale distance from atlanta? Thanks in advance.

I wouldn't even consider Tellico unless you want extreme. I know of poeple that has spent all day and only get 12~15 miles. I live about 45 minutes from Coal Creek and go there quite often. There's many places to stay. If you want to stay in a hotel, Oak Ridge is within 15 minutes of the trailhead and has many places to stay. Theres also 2 campgrounds near the trailhead, Windrock Campground & Indian Creek RV Resort. The campground is just that, tent and RV sites. Indian Creek has all that plus a bunkhouse with rooms that just has 2 bunk beds,tv,bathroom to an upstairs apartment style that sleeps quite a few. If you have a large group that might be the ticket. Indian creek you can access from trail 22. It's not shown on the map but just ask the owners, they'll show you how to get to the trail. Windrock Campground is not accesible from any trail, it's a few miles down the road. I know you used to be able to ride and not have to trailer to the trailhead but just ask the owners, they can tell you if it's still allowed.

Just to let you know, there are 2 other riding area's about an hour away. Brimstone & Royal Blue WMA. Brimstone permit prices are the same as Coal Creek, $15 a day. Royal Blue on the other hand is cheap for TN residents, $12.50 a day or they have a year pass non-resident permit is $30.50 a day. It's state owned, what can you do.

Prentice Cooper is a good place, but there's no maps and everything is easy to slightly moderate in my book. A lot of the trails are smooth dirt trails and some are a little rocky. It's a great place to go maybe once or twice a year and great for a family ride. There's some awesome views. If it's along your way you can check it out. It's actually easy to navigate, there's a main gravel road running down the middle and trail leading out on both sides, but most of them will make a big loop and put you back onto the road.

preciate the info guys just got back,Windrock is awesome.We rode 2 tanks of gas in all of the bikes and did not even put a dent in all of the trails.Can't wait to go back and if you haven't been there before,put it on the must do list.We stayed at Indian creek rv resort if your looking for a place to stay the "cabin" is a old horse stable that has been refurbished,each room has a/c and cable and best of all the stables are right next to your room which is where you keep the bikes out of the weather and out of sight of theives.Oh yeah there's plenty of mud at the top of the mountains.
