House Mountain Park

The trails – some 5.8 miles worth – at House Mountain wind up to Knox County’s highest point! Only 30 minutes from downtown Knoxville, the overlook from the 2,100-foot crest offer exceptional views of the parallel ranges of mountain ranges some 30 miles away. The trails can be steep as they wind through heavily wooded terrain dotted with impressive rock outcrops.

House Mountain also is a favorite place for birdwatchers as migrating hawks and warblers can be observed from the mountain. In addition, ruffed grouse, pileated woodpeckers, scarlet tanagers, wild turkeys, and more than one hundred additional species of birds have been observed on the mountain.

The 500-acre park, located at 9601 Hogskin Road, also includes a picnic area, shelter and restroom.

Park Features
  • Natural Trail (5.8 miles) Easy loops to very difficult trails ascending the mountain.
