This popular outdoor destination for families and adventurers is located in Knoxville’s Urban Wilderness, just three miles from downtown. A wide range of offerings includes convenient parking, a kid’s adventure play area, a kid’s bicycle pump track and loop, and easy multi-use trails. For experienced adventurers, Baker Creek offers five multi-use trails and three downhill mountain bike trails, which range in difficulty and connect to 42 miles of Urban Wilderness trails. The most advanced trail, Devil’s Racetrack, is the only double-black diamond downhill trail in the region, drawing expert riders to its intense gaps and drops.
NOTE: The Bike Park will be closed for routine maintenance on Monday mornings 7am-9am. If City is closed on the Monday or unable to complete work due to inclement weather, the closure will be on Tuesday morning 7am-9am.
Rules & Regulation
Trail names at Baker Creek Preserve reflect the terrain and history of the property. Devil’s Racetrack and Floyd Fox pay homage to the days of moonshine in south Knoxville. The Barn Burner Downhill trail terminates at the location of the old barn on the property. Sycamore Loop winds through some of the largest native trees in the area. Cruze Valley Run descends into the valley located in the heart of the property at a wide-open meadow between the two ridges, and Pappy’s Way, the trail up to Pappy’s Point, is in thanks to the property donor.
