Take a short challenging hike right in the city! There are many trails and variations to the area but this hike will be described as a loop hike in counter clock motion. Take the main trail from the parking lot and then turn right on the blue blaze trails. There are many rock formations to see and winter views from this trail. After 1 mile you reach the red blaze trail it is 1.5 mile in length but will add a little more to your hike if you go all the way out to the rock outcrop for the best views from the top. Go back (west) on the trail for 1.5 miles until you reach the west overlook. Nice views but the scenery is littered with cell towers and buildings from the view of Knoxville accented with interstate noise. The connector to the white blaze trail is covered by blow downs at the time of this review so a little off trail is required to get to the white blaze trail. This trail is 0.8 mi and will quickly descend to the main parking lot to finish the loop.

Pretty challenging incline on the way up! Really gets the heart pumpin'! Watch out for rocks, especially on the way down.

It was a bit strenuous at times, but was100% worth it for the views at the top! We went during the wintertime and it was still gorgeous, I can't imagine this place during the spring and summer!

Nice hike but sometimes hard to see the views due over grown areas.

Easy to get to from downtown Knoxville and the views from the top are great!

The hike up is boring as there's not many spots that can be considered visually striking, but the overlooks are well worth the hike.
