House Mountain Natural Area Trails

9601 Hogskin Road | Corryton, TN 37721
Corryton, TN 37721
Region: East

The 5.8 miles of trail are moderate in difficulty as they climb to the crest. The two trails that lead to the summit, each about a mile long, winding up the hill on a series of switchbacks. In recent years, the Mountain Trail has suffered from severe erosion caused by hikers and trail runners taking shortcuts between the switchbacks. Crews have put up plastic snow fences along the West End Overlook Trail to discourage further trail cutting, and even though the fences are an eyesore, they've been reasonably effective. Work has begun to try to reroute the trail with less switchbacks. Hopefully, this will stop the erosion and stop users from short-cutting. Please be aware of the damage that this does to our trails and stay on the designated route!
