thats dissapointing, you would expect there to be mountain bike trails in the smoky mountains.hey but i am sorry i cant go. that would have been fun though. hey i was wondering if you had any places in mind to ride in knoxxville, so when ever i go there somtime ill have somewhat of an idea where i am going.
If you can get on line, look up trails in the Knoxville area, they are the closest riding for you. Meads Quarry, IC King, Concord, or Haw Ridge are all good, but they're an hour from Pigeon Forge. Unfortunately, the only trail stuff you can do in the Smokies is pedestrian.
I'm riding in Knoxville tomorrow (Sunday, April 1st), not sure when or where yet, but you could send me a pm with your phone number and I'll you in the morning, I could meet you to ride if your parents or you can drive into Knoxville.
