From the bluffs overlooking the Tennessee River to the highest point in the county atop House Mountain, Knoxville’s hiking trails offer scenic adventures for the entire family. Hiking is a year-round activity in Knoxville. Whether under a cool shelter of trees in the summertime, on a golden hillside in the fall, or a frosty ridge top on a winter hike, a wide variety of natural trails provide locations for leisurely strolls or strenuous mountain climbs.
Ijams Nature Center
Ijams Nature Center is part of the Knoxville Urban Wilderness, a recreational, cultural, and historic preservation initiative championed by Legacy Parks Foundation, incorporating 1,000-forested acres along downtown’s south waterfront. Just minutes from downtown lies an urban playground for hikers, trail runners, mountain bikers, anglers and paddlers!
Victor Ashe Park Trails
This greenway is a favorite for dog owners and their leashed dogs, as it is adjacent to a public dog park, Dogwood Park. Victor Ashe Greenway also features a leg that connects the park to Pleasant Ridge Greenway along Pleasant Ridge Road. Cross-country runners, hikers and dog-walkers enjoy the 1.5 miles of natural surface trails that circumvent Victor Ashe Park. The trails weave through the woods, pass through the disc golf course and loop back to the sports fields.
Concord Park Hiking Trails
Aside from the multiple paved trails at other sections of the stretched-out Concord Park, there are 9.4 miles of singletrack trails. The main trail section of the park contains 7.3 miles of these trails while the remaining 2.1 lie on the west side of the parking area. Don’t miss exploring both sections. From the kiosk trailhead, the trail heads uphill, so as you exit the park there will be a nice descent.
Enjoy the beautiful sites of East Tennessee! Happy Holidays!
