Warriors' Path State Park was named for the park's proximity to the ancient war and trading path used by the Cherokee. Since that time, the park land has known a long history of travelers, and is still a pathway for modern-day outdoor enthusiasts. The 950-acre area was acquired from the Tennessee Valley Authority is 1952, to serve the people who live in or visit this section of Northeast Tennessee. It is situated on the shores of TVA's Patrick Henry Reservoir on the Holston River.
I took our 2 youngest daughters and our husky on this trail today. Seemed easy enough, but coming back the incline sneeks up on you when you haven't walked or hiked for 3 months. We will definitely come back when the flowers and trees are in bloom.
It was great, we got caught in a huge downpour that was concentrated right above us. This made the hike really fun and challenging because all of the water pouring off the mountains. It started lightning really bad and we had to turn back at the marsh, will definitely go back
have hiked all the mountain bike trails at warriors path sp over the winter. great area to walk the dog, over 7 miles of trails. unfortunately since spring a LOT of people with dogs off leash, my dog has been attacked and bitten here. these people don't even carry leashes, and have no verbal control over their animals. be forewarned
