Concord Park Trails features 11.2 miles of singletrack trails for hikers, mountain bikers and trail runners. Trails are divided into 3 sections. The main trail section (map 1) features 9.4 miles of rolling and twisting singletrack. There are 7.3 miles on the east side of the parking area with an additonal 2.1 miles of trail across the drive on the west side of the parking area. From the kiosk trailhead, the trail heads uphill which provides a nice descent on your exit from the trails. The shoreline trails contour Springs Creek, an inlet of Fort Loudoun Lake. As you snake your way inland, the woods are lush and sometimes overgrown as trails become tighter. There are both flat and hilly sections and the trail surface varies from smooth to rooty sections. Riders are asked not to ride this trail system during or directly after inclement weather as there will be boggy sections in dips and around the lake. Trails are rated moderate and are well-blazed, signed and maintained.

The newest trail section (map 2) features 1.8 mile of beginner single track located at the roundabout property at the intersection of Northshore and Concord Road entrance is by the old bridge on the west end of the property. A 0.9 mile paved greenway connecting from the Cove to the roundabout property should be completed in 2016. Parking for the trail will be at the Cove when the greenway section is completed.
