Ijams is a nature center in south Knoxville that has over 20 different trails and an old quarry with a lake in it.
Not amazing, but I'm glad it's so close.
Loved the hike along the TN river and the quarry this past Saturday. Couldn't have asked for a more beautiful day to hike the trails. I'll be back!
a well kept, easy place to walk with the kids.
Lots of trail options. Pretty area. Nice trails and well marked. I will return here for leisurely hikes.
A trail for all! Some areas can be off road stroller friendly. I took the Marble Quarry Trail that loops on the outskirts of the nature area. Was lucky enough to see the backside of a deer as she ran away, lol. It was a very quiet hike since I went early in the morning. Had a snack with my 2 year old at a bench about at the half way point. Will come back again since it is very secluded and only 25 minutes from my house!
Great walking trails! Especially like South Loop!
