2019 Featured Trail | Farragut

While you may begin your journey by following a path of pink, you will discover so much more when you experience the Farragut Dogwood Trail, featuring 7.9 miles and nearly 500 homes with impeccably maintained yards. The path begins near Willow Creek Golf Course and the entrance to Fox Den subdivision, deep in the heart of Farragut. Continuing to Country Manor subdivision, you’ll see newer construction highlighted by these darling dogwoods, in addition to other flowering trees that provide shade and character to the scenery. In Village Green subdivision, the trail is transformed into a historic experience. Modeled after Colonial Williamsburg, the neighborhood features carefully maintained landscapes surrounding homes with classic American features. Enjoy your passage through Farragut’s bounteous blooms!
