Trails on private land within Knoxville’s Urban Wilderness

12.5 miles of natural surface trails are accessible directly from Anderson School.  This area offers some notable trail experiences like the AC/DC, fun, fast traverse along the Lost Chromosome along the South Loop to Forks of the River WMA and some of the most remote and contiguous trails in the system, with Trans Farm and Far East.  Heading along the blazed route on Centeroak Dr. and redwood Rd allows quick access to William Hastie Natural Area. These trails cross several private land-owners properties.  Please respect the owners by staying on trails.
