Tannery Knobs Mountain Bike Park

Riding distance from downtown Johnson City’s shops, breweries, and restaurants, Tannery Knobs covers over 40 acres of heavily wooded terrain.  Designed as a skills park for all ages, riders can experience the thrill of off road riding in a progressive environment.  All trails and features have been professionally designed and built, ensuring enthusiasts and beginners alike will find the perfect ride.
Tannery Knobs is more than just bikes.  Take in the amazing views hiking or trail running, making the park accessible for the entire community.

The land for Tannery Knobs was generously donated by the Summers-Taylor construction company in 2016, and sits less than a mile from the newly constructed Tweetsie Trail.  Featuring endless mountain views, the 300’+ ridgeline overlooks Johnson City’s historic Appalachian charm.

The asphalt pump track is the latest amenity added to the 40-acre-plus park. The pump track snakes around a 7,000-square-foot flat area at the pinnacle of the mountain. Open to mountain bikes, BMX bikes, skateboards, rollerblades and scooters, the pump track will consist of berms, banks and bumps.

The Tweetsie Trail

The Tweetsie Trail is a rails-to-trails project traversing former ET&WNC railroad right-of-way between Johnson City and Elizabethton. Because of the unique sound of the locomotive whistle, the railroad and its trains became unofficially yet affectionately known as the “tweetsie.” The trail provides opportunities for walking, hiking, running, biking, etc. on a relatively flat grade in a beautiful, natural setting. When complete, the 10-mile trail will be the longest rails-to-trails project in Tennessee!
