    Here is a collection of GPS data for the Prentice Cooper State Forest located outside of Chattanooga,TN. This is only a small collection of trails. And is a work in progress. It's nowhere near close to showing all the trails available. But I decided to share these files, so that others can benefit and find their way around easier.

    Advrider only allows uploads of .GPX, I orginally released these tracks in a .ZIP file that would include 3 seperate track files (.gpx in one track file, .usr Lowrance in one track file, and .gdb garmin file broke down into 500 point segments. I also included a map and readme.txt for more info, you can download the full release at this link,

    Python,

    Thanks for the tracks. I've been looking at that forest on the map for some time now thinking there must be some good riding up there. Guess I'll have to go check it out now. Might make a stop through there on my way to Nashville in Sept for the Supermoto race.

    Thanks

    It is supposed to be sunny and 72* tomorrow. A perfect day to slip away. I also downloaded the GPS information for Prentice Cooper and I am headed that way first thing in the morning. I was pleasantly suprised to find and waffle house marked on the waypoints. That will come in handy. Thanks for the .gpx files python.

    All the trails in those tracks are fairly easy.. with a creek crossing or two.. Tho there are some trails at prentice cooper I would rate medium difficulity.. Alot of the trails are closed thru hunting season to allow the hunters to hunt.
