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.
Spectacular views up on House Mountain. Traveling up the right side you have two options. Going east isn't too bad of a view and is easy to reach. Going west, on the other hand, is much more difficult. It's worth every step though. You'll get a much wider view and more places for pictures. Enjoy!
Really enjoy the hike. It was moderate hiking trail. It was a little hard to navigate, but we figured it out. So happy to find this trail
This was a great hike. Loved the viewing rock on the north side, well worth it!
my family really enjoyed it. took a while. we took the white trail going up and that proved to be pretty difficult. other folks were taking the blue trail up.
loved it. what a view!
Great day hike, but not for those who can't climb over a bolder or a few down trees. The trail is a little rough in some spots, but great views.
Nice hike. great round trip once you get to the ridge. great views as well
Loved it! Great work out. Dog friendly vibe...met some helpful folks too. Great views from the top. A little tricky finding the east view.....trail could be marked a little better. The full loop gives a lot of diversity in scenery.
Rocky and steep. Sandy near top. Gorgeous views and good workout. It would be better if more trees were marked as occasionally it can be a bit confusing but the GPS on my phone helped a lot.
