Stanky Creek Trail is a 9 mile moderately strenuous loop trail located near Bartlett, Tennessee, which features beautiful wild flowers and is graded as moderate. There are three different trail choices available. The trail provides a range of activities and is open throughout the year. Dogs are also willing to use the trail.
The Blue Trail, 2 miles away, is short with a few brushy turns and a few major drops. Make sure to take a second drop like a cock-fight, little yerry. You can bomb it right down, or you can veer left, and you can bank it. Either way, hug the bottom right, or you're going to drink, sailor. The races generally start with the loop. A nice pre-race warm up loop, too.
The Yellow Trail, 2.2 miles south, is definitely the tallest of the lot. Several parts of the "tree pinball" leave the bowlegged bruised and the large form of bar swollen. In this segment, there are some hyper-slippery bridges, log piles, a dipty-doo creek and a stellar tree ramp walk.
The White Trail is approximately 6.5 miles long and is the most pulmonary challenge, and a few ups and downs will annoy your shifters and test your patience. Within this 6.5 mile loop is the 1 mile long Outhouse trail, which could be called one of the best miles in Memphis, this trail is quick and furious, hammering as hard as you like, Pedro, rolls and dips and bounces like the best you've ever had.
The Outhouse Trail runs through the skid row, where riders join the Wino Trail. This is another one-track wonder of decades-old nickel-whiskey bottles and some kind of Mayan teepee. The wino gives you what might be called the best section of the trail around this part, a rippin down the hill leads you into a fast whoopdee, over the bridge, hammer it to the next down hill, and rail the curved bridge into a narrow winding section, where you'll be rewarded to another downhill where you'll have to watch for the ribbon covered vines. After a few wormholes, tight trees, and a 180-deg turn that's going to hold you honest, you're going past the huckin' pre-pubes on BMX Park, and then you're home free with a quick fun downhill, where you're going to reach the creek, wondering if the ramps are still there. Back to the lot for another lap, you're an ultra-cool mutha.
