DOGWOOD TRAILS & GARDENS

Knoxville’s iconic dogwood trails date back to 1955 and today cover more than 85 miles in 12 neighborhoods throughout the city. Take a drive, a walk, or a bike ride and enjoy the scenic natural beauty of our region!

65 YEAR HISTORY

FEATURED TRAIL: 

SEQUOYAH HILLS

One of the oldest premier neighborhoods in the city, this idyllic community is home to Knoxville’s first Dogwood Trail which was established 1955.  While every season will delight you with color in Sequoyah Hills, spring rolls out the red carpet, from abundant flowering dogwoods and spectacular landscapes to the line of ancient cherry trees along Cherokee Boulevard.  Enjoy the beauty of the season in this gardener’s dreamland!

THE PINK LINE STORY

FOLLOW THE PINK LINES

Pink lines are painted along each Dogwood Trail, directing you through roughly 85 miles of blooming neighborhoods. The City of Knoxville uses roughly 100 gallon of custom-blended paint each year to make sure the Trails stay bright pink throughout the spring season.

"We'll have about three to four days with two crews doing the actual stripping, and another three or four days for the arrows and iconic dogwood bloom," signs and markings supervisor Bryan Gilbert says.

VIRTUAL GARDEN TOURS: 

PRODUCED BY POP FIZZ BRAND PRODUCTIONS

Since many people weren't able to travel to Knoxville this spring, we partnered with Pop Fizz Brand Productions to bring our Gardens to YOU! The videos below are intimate looks into two Open Gardens along the Historic Dogwood Trails in Knoxville, TN. Specially selected by the Open Gardens Committee, these exceptional gardens are works of art to be shown off during the peak blooming season in April.

LAKEMOOR HILLS DOGWOOD TRAIL

This Open Garden has sweeping views of the Tennessee River and was lovingly cultivated by longtime Dogwood Arts Volunteers and Trails Committee Members Ann & Dick Graf.

FARRAGUT DOGWOOD TRAIL

Enjoy this intimate look at the magnificent woodland garden that owners Michael & Mary Bates have been cultivating for over 25 years.
