Favorite Place In or Around Knoxville to Hike?

CP KFQ, Questions 12 Comments

Earlier this week we posted a video displaying the amazing colors that our mountains and hills display during the Fall. With the recent warm weather we’ve come to know here in Knoxville, staying indoors is hard to do.

Because seeing those Fall colors first hand is fun to do, what is your favorite place in or around Knoxville to hike or go for a walk?

  1. yes, many family picnics at frozen head! great place to go and it is a beautiful surrounding of mountains.

    but for knoxville…. i like walking around ut’s campus during class. no one at all hardly is around, and it’s so beautiful with all the old buildings and trees everywhere. i also like to go down to volunteer landing for a run, but my absolute favorite place (gah, so hard to decide!) would probably be sequoyah hills park by the water. it’s close and it’s beautiful scenery.

  2. Mt. Leconte is the best if you get a nice day. Leaves is cades code, or one of the balds. Viewing the leaves…hmm great views everywhere even on I-40

  3. As far as close proximity goes, you can’t beat House Mountain. Located in Halls, a twenty minute drive from downtown Knoxville is all it takes to get to what may be the best urban hiking area in the country.

    It features a couple miles of trails along with two really nice overlooks, one facing south, the other overlooking Halls.

    Here’s a shot of a friend and me from overlook that faces Halls.
