The William Hastie Natural Area is just a short drive off of Chapman Hwy and is the southern most entry to Knoxville's Urban Wilderness other than the Private Land Easement that lies due east of it off the Lost Chromosome trail. The loop is moderate and less travelled than others in the KUO due to it's location and entry point and is probable used more by mountain bikers, but can be excessively muddy for that reason. It's a rather easy loop with no views to speak of and little elevation change that doesn't diverge very far off the main trail but could be attractive to someone wanting a less rigorous hike, run or mountain biking session with less traffic. The last section actually consists of private land easement but only briefly encounters any residential development.
