Biking in Cherokee. Make new tracks in an ancient world.
Whizzing through luxuriant landscapes on a bike is a fantastic way to experience Cherokee. Both road and mountain cycling opportunities abound in the area. The Cherokee National Forest features two extensive mountain bike trail systems: Tanasi and Chilhowee. Both are located in the Ocoee River Zone approximately 45 minutes from Interstate 75, Exit 20. Though there are no roads with designated bike lanes, several paved roads traverse the national forest and are regularly enjoyed by bicyclists.
