mcfee park adaptive mountain bike & hiking trail
The Town of Farragut and Tennova Healthcare celebrated the opening of the Adaptive Mountain Bike and Hiking Trail at McFee Park with a ribbon cutting on Monday, June 26. The trail is located behind the large pavilion next to the splashpad. Tennova Healthcare donated $50,000 to the Town of Farragut to help finance construction of the trail.
The 1.5-mile trail was constructed in accordance with the standards of the International Mountain Bike Association for riders of all skill levels, including children and disabled athletes riding adaptive equipment. Contour Trail Design began construction of the trail in January, and it was completed in April. The unpaved, wooded trail has a relatively low grade throughout. It has a double-horseshoe design with cut throughs that allow for a customized distance.
