Sharp's Ridge Memorial Park Trails
Knoxville, TN 37918
Natural Trail: 4.7-mile loop and 0.6-mile downhill only
Difficulty: easy to advanced
There are 4.7 miles of multi-use trails that wind across the wooded hills. The trails can be accessed from the neighborhood on Hanover/Ridge Road; from the bottom trailhead just across from the picnic area; and from the upper parking area by the cell tower. Starting adjacent to the upper parking lot, the Gravity Jump Trail is 0.6 miles and is a black diamond expert only trail for mountain bikers - no foot traffic or dogs are allowed. Sharp Ridge trails drain extremely well and are a great place to hike or ride when other Knoxville trails are too wet.
One of the best sites around for migrant songbirds in the spring.
