There are 4.7 miles of multi-use trails that wind across the wooded hills. The trails can be accessed from the neighborhood on Hanover/Ridge Road; from the bottom trailhead just across from the picnic area; and from the upper parking area by the cell tower.The Gravity Jump Trail is 0.6 miles and is a black diamond expert only trail for mountain bikers - no foot traffic or dogs are allowed. Sharp Ridge trails drain extremely well and are a great place to hike or ride when other Knoxville trails are too wet.
Good trail. Not busy today. Great easy hike with dogs. Bike trails for more advanced users. Views of downtown Knoxville.
this is a intermedate trail that i would rate as moderate with fast down hill runs and steep hills, jumps and tight turns but a fun ride.Not much Parking
Easy hike in North Knoxville. Good winter views. Good areas to picnic.
