Hey Jaz, blackmountain is a great place. It is located just a few miles from the Crab Orchard exit near crossville.
TBH it is barely further than going to windrock. Takes about 35-40 minutes from West Knoxville

I honestly dont remember how to get there from the crab orchard exit. It was pretty darn close to the highway I went with some guys from TNVJC.org and they knew the area quite well. This trail system is part of a state park. It is free to ride on. I think it starts at moderate though, its a little different from windrock. I really enjoyed it there. Go with someone who as been there before, the trails are not marked very well at all.

There is plenty more to see at Windrock. Royal Blue and Black Mtn are close by. If you expand just a little further you can hit places like Golden Mtn, Coppingers cove, Mt. Aetna. I have done each of those in a day trip from Knoxville. Those places should provide more than enough local wheelin. If your willing to camp a night that adds some more.

Well there's this place called Vol Village... There's still that really short trail. Mahafee Trail, but that's not exactly public.
