Only half of the Coontree Loop is open to bikes. It’s got a pretty steep pitch and is better for going down than up. This route takes you up Bennett Gap Trail to the gap and then down Coontree. You’ll finish up along US 276, which sees less traffic in the months Coontree is open. Ride surface is 2.2 miles of single track, 1.6 miles of forest road, and 2.7 miles of pavement. The ride hightlights include a tough uphill, technical downhill, and winter views.
