Lula Lake Five Points 50

Lula Lake Five Points 50

October 10 / Lula Lake Land Trust / 8:00am

Chattanooga, TN is known for having some of the sweetest singletrack in the country. We all know the usual riding spots that are open to mountain bikes, but what about the trails that aren’t? Wouldn’t you like to ride on some of the sweetest backwoods trail you’ve ever laid your two eye balls on? This is your chance to ride trails that usually require a super-secret handshake and magic decoder ring to access. Stuff so secret that we can’t even give you a map for fear we’ll be taken away by men is black coats and sunglasses.

The Lula Lake Land Trust 5 Points 50 is not a race; it’s a test of your will and determination. This course was designed to challenge you like no other; made up of fire service roads, multi-use trail, purpose built mountain bike singletrack, backwoods hiking trails, and even some tarmac. The bulk of the course is made up of the 5-Points Trail System, Lula Lake Land Trust property, and various sections of the Cloudland Canyon Connector Trail, including the 6.5 mile Long Branch/Nickajack section. The remainder of the course is on private property; as such there is no map of the course available.

The 5-Points trail system is comprised of purpose built, mountain bike singletrack built by SORBA Chattanooga and opened in the fall of 2011. The trails wind through a revegetated Coal Mine known as the Durham mine that was active from about 1850 until 1922. Throughout the 1980s and 90’s this area was home to great mountain biking thanks, in part, to the vast network of motocross trails. The area closed in the late 1990s when the Drummond Coal Company sold the property at auction to Lula Lake Land Trust and other private investors. Lula Lake deeded the land to the GA State DNR with a recreational development plan that 11 years later is just beginning to be realized. The 5-Points are is accessed by two parking areas, one on GA Hey 157 a 5-Points Road and the other off Ascalon Rd. Both lots are equipped with restrooms, picnic areas, changing screens and information kiosks.
