How much does it cost to ride?
Bikes, kids, adults, dogs and Cats (ok not animals, unless they are riding bikes...which would be awesome)...if you are moving on something other than your feet, you are required to wear a helmet 100% of the time at Tannery Knobs.
Tannery Knobs Mountain Bike Park is FREE!!
As one of Johnson City's downtown parks, you can ride all day any day free of charge...no clubs, memberships, or secret societies required.
all of them.
Seriously...from beginner friendly fun and flowy to aggressive lips and berms, the park was designed to challenge yet inspire riders of all skill levels. Similar to a ski resort, the trails allow riders to develop skills in a progressive manner. All but 1 of the trails are directional, which allows for dramatically bike optimized experiences as well as no fear of interacting with oncoming riders.
There are several trails and skills features that are ideal for the under 4' crowd including a huge paved pump track (with the best view ever). Just don't forget helmets are required for all riders big and small!
To ride it all, a mountain bike.
To truly take advantage of the trails, you'll want to be pedaling a modern mountain bike...however, that doesn't mean you have to have a $10,000 one to have some fun!
Obviously the advanced trails are designed for advanced equipment (and skill set), however our beginner trails are perfectly suited for just about anything with knobby tires and any rider looking to play in the dirt.
The paved pump track is open to bmx as well, so come one come all...just remember that helmets are mandatory for all users.
If you have any questions about the readiness of your trusty steed, we recommend stopping by one of Johnson Cities bicycle stores to see if it passes the test prior to your first visit. Several stores also offer rental options to help get you riding if needed.
