Chitwood Mountain, Winfield Tennessee
Chitwood is located near the town of Winfield TN just a short 10 mile drive that takes less than 10 minutes. After leaving US27 it is another 10 minutes or so to the trail head. The first hill is traditionally the most rutted and muddy but after that it is a decent 2-track for the most part. Plenty of rocks and rock ledges to play on your way to the 'hole in the earth' which is a reclaimed open strip mine. After exploring that area the trail drops down to a creek/river which has some brushy areas so expect some light scratches. Once to the creek/river get ready to count how many times you enter with the goal of having the same amount of exits. You will not only cross the creek/river but you will drive down stream as well. The roughly 40 miles does include some asphalt on the way in and on the way out which is a loop. Nearby is a Murph's Bar and Grill which is a favorite spot for dinner as well.
