SORBA Chattanooga is raising funds for a downhill Bike Park! With a goal of $330,000, the chapter is well on its way with $212,500 already raised. Located in Hixon, Tennessee, Mountain Creek Park will provide the first downhill trails in the Chattanooga region, offering new opportunities for local and regional riders. It will also become the first local recreation area to offer both mountain biking and climbing. The project is a collaboration among six recreation and conservation groups including SORBA-Chattanooga, the local mountain bike organization, that aims to increase access to the outdoors for the nearby Red Bank school system and surrounding low- and middle-income communities.
