Foothills Parkway Challenge

Blount County, TN, US

Route Overview

63 mi.
8,155 ft.

Few rides in the eastern U.S. offer climbs and descents of this length, coupled with vistas comparable to Colorado and the western states. The entire Foothills Parkway is a treat, but the new section is a rare gem that will undoubtedly be ranked as one of your top all-time favorite rides. The views of the Smoky Mountains are that good, and the descents are that fun! It’s a tough ride (even when shortened) with a huge payoff for the effort. We can’t recommend this ride enough.
