The first 2 miles of the beginner level Bells Bend trails are open and Metro Parks is offering FREE mountain bike check out at the Bells Bend Outdoor Center. Please call ahead at 615-862-4187 for availability and trails conditions.

Working in partnership with the Middle Tennessee chapter of IMBA-SORBA, Bells Bend plans 4.8-5.0 miles of proposed single-track trails ideal for beginner riders, children and families. The landscape will include small rock formations, some exposed roots, open fields, and rolling hills.

There will be two loops rated at the beginner/intermediate level. One loop will offer a slower-paced, relaxed ride for cruisers and one loop will be more technical with a few switchbacks. The system will be utilized in either a clockwise or counter-clockwise direction. The trails will be closed in wet weather conditions. Port-O-Let facilities and water will be available at the trailhead or visitors can utilize the restroom facilities at the Bells Bend Outdoor Center. For easy access to the trail system, parking will be available at either the trailhead or at the Bells Bend Outdoor Center. The proposed mountain bike trails at Bells Bend are not open yet and are coming soon.
