Moccasin Bend Loop

Named by Native Americans for it's distinctive boot shape when viewed from the bluff of Lookout Mountain, Moccasin Bend can trace its human roots to pre history. Now, much of the land is managed by Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park.

A road ride out to the tip of the Bend takes cyclists through a busy industrial area before transitioning into a scenic, green peninsula that is heavily populated by deer and wild turkey. The ride is best early in the morning or in the evening, after rush hour and industrial traffic has cleared.

The back half of the loop runs through a residential area before spilling onto Cherokee Blvd. Go through the Stringers Ridge Tunnel then enjoy a pigtail raising downhill back into town to finish.

The route is perfect for adults and older teenagers who want to begin riding on trafficked roads or who desire a shorter, scenic route close to downtown. THIS RIDE IS NOT APPROPRIATE FOR SOLO RIDERS UNDER THE AGE OF 16.
