This park is one of the most beautiful and well maintained parks in Knoxville. It is a great place to meet friends for local volleyball, soccer, frisbee football and frisbee golf. The park offers both trail and paved running. There are many different running/walking paths to choose from allowing for a change in scenery on a regular basis.

This is an EASY trail. It's not a "Moderate" trail. It really isn't even a trail as it is almost completely paved. The incline is gradual, and I didn't feel even a tiny bit taxed to walked the whole path.

The parking lot is large but a little uncomfortable to get out of since traffic is moving at 50mph+ and curving with sight-lines impeded. The path has some nice views of beautiful houses, the lake, and some nice UT buildings.
It's very clean. I believe the UT golf team trains next to it. The other people I met on the trail were very friendly.

Lovely hike. Would have been better without broken glass on the trail. Also, not really a loop.

fun trail with an area for my dog to swim

Pretty water views and no litter make this little park a nice place to visit. There were only a few people when we were there, -all of them fishing. The entrance is hidden, so of you've not been before, it will creep up on you. Also of note, there are actually 2 entrances-- one north, one south of the bridge, and both have parking.
