On Saturday, the Cumberland Transit crew headed over to Percy Warner Park to celebrate the Grand Opening of the mountain bike trails at Percy Warner Park. Along with a handful of other sponsors, we came loaded up with gear for rent so new riders could get out on the dirt paths.
The 8 miles of trails run through the northwest section of the park with a trailhead at the Percy Warner Park Golf Course and at the Deep Well park entrance. There are trails for all skill levels, ranging from beginner to advanced, so check the trailhead signs before you ride. According to members of the Southern Off-Road Bicycle Association-MidTN (SORBA), the Percy Warner Park trail is Nashville’s first properly-manicured trail with miles of flow trail with large banks, berms, corners and hops.
