On July 24th, come join us for a group ride to Raccoon Mountain. This will be an intermediate level ride with different groups within the ride from slower to advanced. You should be able to ride at least one complete loop of Dwelling and all obstacles without stopping to participate in this ride. We will meet in the church parking lot by Blankets Creek at 7am on Saturday, July 24th, to convoy and carpool up to Chattanooga. You can also just meet us there at the TVA Raccoon Mountain Visitor Center at 9:30am. http://www.tnvacation.com/vendors/tvas_raccoon_mountain_pumped_storage_visitor_center/. We will begin the ride from the visitor center at 9:30am. You may also be interested in camping at the Raccoon Mountain Campground. Make your own reservations at the campground asap if you plan to camp. http://www.raccoonmountain.com/. If you are camping, then let the campground know that you are with SORBA Woodstock because they will try to get the camp sites in the same area.
During summer months, trails dry faster but still need time to recover from significant rainfall. Give 'em some time!
Note: Trail status is always up to date and accurate. The date stamp simply refers to the last date it changed, not the last time it was updated. If it reads the trails are open and the date stamp reads a week ago that tells you the trails have been open for a week. When trails are closed they are closed to everyone including foot traffic.
