Haw Ridge Park, situated on a scenic peninsula along the Clinch River between Knoxville and Oak Ridge, boasts both water and land recreational activities. Weaving through the park, the almost 30 miles of singletrack/dirt road trails accommodate trail runners, hikers and mountain bikers. And it's a gold mine for the geocachers that come in search of bounty. The 5 miles of Clinch River shoreline furnish anglers and paddlers with their portion of the park to enjoy. The 4th stage of the development for the Melton Lake Greenway is due to be completed late spring and will provide a great connection from those wanting to bicycle, walk or run from Oak Ridge to the park. The park is always bustling with outdoor activity from spring wildflower hikes, to mountain bike and trail running races — we'll keep you posted on our events calendar!
