Loyston Point Bike Trails

Loyston Point spreads across a peninsula on the Clinch River arm of Norris Lake. Trails will traverse through the beautiful woodland, hug the shoreline of the Clinch River, and ascend to the ridge top for great views of the river below, the Cumberland Mountains to the northwest, and the Smokies to the southeast. The 17.7 mile trail system consists of singletrack, doubletrack, and old roads. While 12.7 miles are multi-use trail open to mountain bikers, hikers and trail runners, there are 2.5 miles of foot traffic-only trail that winds through the Hemlock Bluffs Small Wild Area. The trails handle wet weather and are user-friendly. Water lovers will enjoy the swimming hole, fishing, and paddling along the Point 19 trail.
