Barely Legal

Stringer’s Ridge, a 92 acre tract of land one mile from downtown Chattanooga has been a popular (and somewhat illegal) mountain biking destination for years. Miles of social trails and some freeride terrain has existed on the property, which has also been used as an unofficial dumping ground for litterers. Now, with the help of the Trust for Public Land, the city of Chattanooga has a chance to buy Stringer’s Ridge and turn it into a legitimate park.

Though the city council is currently split on the decision to turn Stringer’s into a park, SORBA Chattanooga is putting their significant clout behind the project. The bike group, which has established the goal of building 100 miles of singletrack within ten minutes of downtown, has a reputation for transforming neglected property into fat tire wonderlands.
