Recording shorted a mile. Took outer trail all the way around. Back loop blacks are excellent for hill workouts.

I couldn’t really get over the noise. Cars speeding, police sirens, trains going by. It was a little too much and no matter how deep you got into the park it was still there. However, the trails were nice. Not too muddy with all of the rain we have been having.

Nice view of Knoxville from the cliffs

Trail was nice and paved but my dog was attacked by another dog today that was leashed because it was not controlled by the owner. The trail also seems to go by a water/sewage treatment plant too. I'd try again and would hope for a better experience next time.

It rained right before we hiked it so it was very slippery but it was shaded the whole way so that's nice. Definitely bring bug spray and a stick for this hike. The trail is narrow and there's lots of spiderwebs between trees across the trail. We went between noon and 3 and there weren't any other people on the trail aside from fishermen at the north trail head/boat ramp. Also I had my phone on power saving mode and it messed up the location recording. we walked approximately 3.2 miles in an hour and 45 minutes.

I’ve been going to the Fort Dickerson Quarry for a few years now though this is the first year I’ve started using the trail due to construction. The trail is really fun and really easy as well as pretty short if you’re just hiking down to the quarry. Also beautiful! Only bad thing is it’s extremely crowded in the summer and trying to find a spot at the quarry can be really tough

Nice quick trail when you just want to be outside for a bit. Dogs inside fence if you aren't a dog person.

Nice and peaceful

Good shape for all the rain we’ve had

Great trail to quarry while the other trail entrance is closed. Easy enough and lots of families around.

always a great hike

It’s literally just a sidewalk through a neighborhood, but it is nicely shaded and decently long with some good views of the TN river throughout.

Good for getting your steps in, just make sure not to land in the goose poop!

Great place!

Good uphill work on gravel most of the way, unmarked so we depended on the map more than I would have liked. That said it was still fun and there was a nice view of the river and town at the top!

Pleasant morning walking

We started off of Chapman and took trails around the quarry to make it a 2.2 mile hike. Additional trails show on Google Maps. Easy hiking. Good views of the quarry. There is construction in progress for parking upgrades so you have to work your way around that.

Tons of shade! Huge plus! Nice and flat, great for kids just starting out. Can see how mud might be an issue during heavy rains. Great trail!

Great trail, two loops connected by scenic route with bridges over the creek. Minimum shade on loops. I'll be back!

Easy paved trail along 10 Mile Creek, very pretty and pleasant. Easy access from the AMC theater near Lowe’s.

Very easy trail, wet in a few spots. Hard to find the trailhead. Directions take you to Lowe’s, but you have to wind around back past the AMC. Mile marker 0-1 are prettier than 1-1.6.

Very pretty - old lakeshore building- hills- people plz pick up your dog poop bags

This trail is an excellent little getaway from the bustling city that you can glimpse from its heights. it was a easy-moderate trail, as there wasnt much to climb over, and it was mostly dry. thankfully the main path is well worn, however its extremely easy to get lost with no signage. i made sure to even try to reference the map at the beginning and that didnt help much.
