Announcing a new Meetup for Bowling Green Hiking Meetup!

What: Mountain Biking at Lock 4 - Gallatin TN.

When: July 26,[masked]:00 AM

Lock 4 City Park
Lock 4 Road
Gallatin, TN 37066

Come out and ride middle Tennessee's best single track mountain bike trail. This is the perfect time of year to get out and enjoy a morning on the trail. We usually ride for an hour or so and then hang out by the lake to cool off and chat.

If you want to hang out and relax after the ride, bring some food and drink to share by the lake for a late brunch.

If it rains we'll cancel.

*Lock 4* *Info*- This 8.5 mile trail is considered a great scramble trail. Don't let the length scare you away. It's more of a riding trail than a technical trail. The singletrack is twisty and narrow at times with some 4X4 roads for high speed.

Yellow arrows mark the main trail. Since the park is on a peninsula, it's hard to get lost, although you may repeat parts of the trail if you don't pay attention. The trails are well maintained by the Lock 4 Trailblazers. Closed when wet.
