Most of the off road trails and locations in TN are clustered over on the east side of Tennessee near the borders of Georgia and North Carolina and are located in the Chattanooga and the Nantahala National Forest's. For those residents on the western half of the state, we do have some good news though as you have one place to get off the pavement. This off road location is Bikini Bottoms Off Road and Zip Line Park located in Dyersburg, TN. Bikini Bottoms is a family place and their off road park includes mud racing, riding trails, and camping. They also hold event weekends once a month to help you get away from the normal hustle and bustle of everyday life. To learn more about Bikini Bottom you can visit their website here.
In the center of the state, not far from Nashville, we have Wooly's Off Road and Wheelin' in the Country which are approx. 1 hour and 1 hour and twenty minutes respectively from the city. These are two big powerhouses in TN for offroading and are definitely worth visiting. Wooly's aims to provide a safe, yet fun place to ride while not offending any neighbors. They are open Saturday and Sunday from 8:00am until dark. They also have nighttime riding occasionally so keep an eye open for that! Wooly's consist of public roads, so you still have to follow the rules of the road. There is also a fee to access, so they ask that you stop by the building to check-in and out. You can also learn more about this park on our trail description. On to the next one, Wheelin' in the Country which is located in Summertown, TN. WITC is 700+ acres of private land owned by Darron Buchanan. This park consists of all levels of trail difficulty from beginner to the extreme and expert 4x4 offroad enthusiast. They have a variety of obstacles and options offered including: hills, hollers, twisters, gullies, rock ledges, rock gardens, flex ramp, offroad track, ravines, mud pits, and ponds. Wheelin in the Country is definitely an offroaders dream and I would highly recommend visiting it while in TN. I would also suggest making sure you take a tow rope with you for this park - like one of our favorites here by Rhino USA.
The residents in Chattanooga are just as lucky as those in Nashville, as they have some great offroad trails located not too far North and Northwest of the city. One of these is Adventure Offroad Park located a little NW of Chattanooga in South Pittsburg. AOP is a private 500 acre park located in the mountains of South Central TN. They have over 100 different 4x4 trails located throughout the park that offer all levels of difficulty for their customers. They have offroad trails for stock vehicles, all the way up to extreme builds. If you dont believe us then you can learn more about this awesome park on their website. The other offroad location in TN near Chattanooga is actually a state forest - Prentice Cooper State Forest. This state forest is almost 25,000 acres and was acquired by the state between the years of 1938 and 1944 and was officially declared a state forest in 1945. There are several roads through this forest that allow OHV riding, just amke sure to check which ones are open before heading out since they close them temporarily for upkeep. Also all roads are closed from December 19th - March 15th to keep the roads form getting destroyed. You could spend hours offroading in this forest so make sure to check out their website for updates and details before heading out. Lastly, due to the sheer size of this forest and the ease of getting lost with no cell signal, I would suggest taking an emergency communication system like this Spot 3 Satellite GPS Messenger with you.
