Knoxville’s Urban Wilderness has over 40 miles of trails for biking and hiking. The proposed “Gravity Trail” – which will include rock gardens, drops, and constructed features –will put us on the map as one of the premiere outdoor recreation destinations. It will add a cool new feature to our trails, attract new riders and businesses, and increase the desirability of our community.
HERE’S WHY IT’S IMPORTANT TO YOU:
Recreational bicycling is a $200 billion industry in the US
One in 20 Americans makes a living off outdoor recreation – 70,000 in Tennessee
For every dollar spent on bicycling tourism, $7 more is spent in locations they visit
Property values close to trails and greenways are up to 30% higher
