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.

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.

Went on this great hike on a Wednesday morning/afternoon. Only one on the trail until going back down the mountain! If you don't like a little steep, don't do it. I loved it, though! Did the crest trail & went to the East Overlook. Great view! Very very peaceful.

A simple trail with a great view at the end. Very easy but close to downtown Knoxville (20 minute drive), so an easy pick on a day when you don't have much time to get away.

My dog and I hike this trail often!! I love the view and he loves getting out of the house!! I started doing this trail frequently to prep for LeConte and it helped me tremendously.

Definitely gets your heart pumping going up the incline. Some sections are a little tough on the knees and ankles. Definitely worth it for the view.

Beautiful view, but hard on a twice a month 62 year old hiker.

Great trail. There are a few spots that would make it somewhat difficult for small children or older dogs, though I saw plenty of both on a beutiful/busy Sunday afternoon.

Nice hike for such a short drive. Incline is pretty steep at times, but worth it. Nice views of Corryton and surrounding areas. A little busy.
