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!

2019 Featured Trail | Farragut

Follow the pink lines beginning at the entrance to the Fox Den community to experience the beauty of the Farragut Dogwood trail. Established in 2001, the trail wanders thru three distinct neighborhoods covering 7.9 miles of impeccably maintained properties. Catch a  glimpse of Fox Den’s 18-hole golf course which is home to the PGA’s ‘Knoxville Open’ golf tournament, enjoy the spring flowering trees of Country Manor where you might just see a croquet tournament under way on a warm spring day at the Knoxville Croquet Club, and take in the historic charm of Village Green patterned after Colonial Williamsburg.
