Mountain bike rider Sean White of Nashville hops the last bump before exiting the new Warner Park Mountain Bike Trail on Saturday. The trail, at 1221 Forrest Park Drive, runs eight miles with differing obstacles for riders of all skill levels.
“I just bought a mountain bike yesterday,” the Thompson’s Station man said. “They told me at Eastside bike shop I ought to come over here and check it out. I’m new. I’ve got a bunch of buddies at work, five or six guys that have gotten into mountain biking. I wanted to ride with them.”
Cordell had plenty of riding buddies because the mountain bike community showed up in force to celebrate the arrival of what one member called “the holy grail” of trails. The Warner Park Mountain Bike Trail at 1221 Forrest Park Drive runs eight miles with differing obstacles for riders of all skill levels. It is Nashville’s fourth mountain bike trail, which means Metro parks now offer 25 miles. More trails are in the works.
Daniel Lonow of Green Hills, a member of the Southern Off-Road Bicycle Association-MidTN (SORBA), and others like him worked with Metro officials to make the new trail and its spacious parking lot a reality.
“This was a major leap forward for us,” Lonow said. “This is our first properly manicured trail that we have ever built. Most of our trails are cross country, rocky, rooty. This does have a trail like that. But most of it is what is known as a flow trail with large banks, berms, corners and hops.”
