Region: North

Just 10 minutes from downtown you can drive to the top of Sharp's Ridge Memorial Park for the best view of our skyline and the distant mountain peaks. About three-quarters of the way to the top of the ridge, there is an overlook platform featuring signage identifying the peaks that are most familiar to us. When fall has claimed the leaves from the hardwood trees surrounding the park, there are views to be had from the two picnic areas. Just across from the first picnic area, there is a trailhead for the 1.25 mile loop singletrack trail. Birdwatchers can join one of the Knoxville Chapter of the Tennessee Ornithological Society many hikes.
The Appalachian Mountain Bike Club is currently building new trails along the ridge. When finished there will be an estimated 3.6 miles of trail. Join them for a workday!
