Multiple options for hikers looking for a casual hike to the cardiac workout that comes with elevation climb. Trails are well marked and better yet there is a rope climb and a bell to ring at the top on the West Slope.

Started at the very end and went until we got to the boat ramp. Had 3 kids 12, 7, 4 with us but 4 yr old did most of the trail in the trailer bc there was a few steep hills to climb. it is close to the road on some of the trail but gets more scenic and quiet near the near the small marsh and down to the boat ramp. my gps read about 11 miles from beginning and back. theres a small park on the trail with nice picnic areas and also hiking along the route. not to many bathrooms so make sure to go at the park.

Lots of good trail options.

Easy walk, great for dogs on leash.

Well maintained and cool year round... too close to the road.

Good walk that’s close to home. Not too much to see.

Sea ticks everywhere and no amount of bug repellent helps. You will be covered. I rode home in underwear after stripping my kids. I'm not sure if all the ticks are worth a decent hike.

These are great trails, but a lot of them are only for fairly experienced mountain bikers. (Hikers etc. can do any of them)These trails are extremely technical due to a lot of roots and rocks. There are also some small drops. The trails are a lot of fun and I highly recommend them.

This is one of my favorite Greenways not to crowded with some up hill sections to get your heart pumping and good parking

We love to do this trail with our kids, easy paved walk with public bathrooms at the main parking lot by the rowing center. If you start at the last parking lot on Melton Lake Dr before you hit Edgemoor it has a nice walkway that goes out with lake on one side and marsh area on the other.

This is a great Greenway all paved but some boardwalk along the river, Has access to Haw Ridge mountain bike trails and another Greenway about mid way.

Beautiful views when you're walking by the water (Lake Trail). The water was a gorgeous blue green. Lovely in winter

Good trails! Variety of difficulty ranging from easy to hard. I covered about 7 miles and didn't get to all of the trails. It would be a lot of fun on a bike so I'll have to try that next time.

it's great better markings would be nice but all around it's great the vibe with nature is one of a kind

Great time! Trails are clear and challenging! Hiked 8 miles with our kids and they loved it.

I grew up in Oak Ridge, so have ridden, hiked, kayaked, camped this area most of my life.
Recently moved back, after ten years in Atlanta/LA/New York, shooting film/video for documentaries and film. Almost forgot how much I enjoyed this area. I now live in Kingston area, on Watts Bar Lake (I'm a river rat) but have been riding Haw again, often for three hours, after I have dropped my Mom off at Sunday school.
The loop is great, and scenic. But you Mtn bikers especially, should consider exploring the primitive trails off the loop. You won't be disappointed!
Ride safe, ride happy. I may see you there!

very calm fun trail

You wouldn't expect trails like this to be so close to both Oak Ridge and Knoxville. I would definitely not rate these trails as "Hard" although there are some very steep (albeit short) climbs. There are a ton of great trails in the park other than this loop, but this one offers the best views in my opinion. Along the south edge (I forget exactly where) there are a couple picnic tables that make for an awesome lunch stop. If you go during the summer, make sure to bring some bug spray as certain sections can be pretty bad.

This was very lovely hike. We only spent about an hour and ten minutes out there due to time constraints. But it was quite beautiful. Lots of different trails to take, make it as easy or as hard as you like. My only complaint was the sound from the highway near by.

Great set of trails of varying difficulty and varied terrain. It's all here: steep rocky inclines, winding little paths flanked by wildflowers, views of lakes and mountains, bubbling brooks, lake-shore walks. Frequented by mountain bikers, but not overrun. Only downside is the highway noise from Rt 170 at start and finish. Once you get over or around the mountain, deeper into the park, its beautiful.
