Holston River Park Trails
Knoxville, TN 37914
There's a wonderful natural surface trail in Holston River Park that you can access from the paved greenway. The trailhead to the Perimeter Trail is just off the southern edge of the greenway loop. This scenic one-mile natural surface trail contours the Holston River for a short distance, meandering under a beautiful oak and beech tree canopy. Trail winds through the woods passing by several rockfaces and crosses over an abandoned rail line. Residents from the surrounding neighborhoods can access this trail via connectors at the corners of both Riverside Drive and Holston Hills Road.
