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!

2018 Featured Trail | Westmoreland

The grandeur of the Westmoreland Dogwood Trail, established in 1957, attracts many to its quiet wooded lanes. This historic neighborhood dates back to the early 1920’s when property owners built the ‘Waterwheel’ to provide electricity and water to its residents. The Tudor Revival Style Waterwheel and Gatepost, designed by Charles Barber, are on the National Historic Register and provide a beautiful welcome to this charming neighborhood. The trail showcases over 10 miles of gorgeous blooming landscapes and estate properties.




Bikes & Blooms

Bikes & Blooms produced with DreamBikes, allows visitors and residents to experience the Dogwood trails the lean, green way – on a bicycle by way of an organized ride. These are family friendly bike rides through scenic neighborhoods and on local greenways. Rides are geared to help riders learn how to do their own road rides.


Hikes & Blooms

Join us for 12 guided hikes during April and May. Whether on a greenway through a historic park or on a natural trail through the woods, enjoy the natural beauty of East Tennessee on these guided hikes. The interactive hikes will highlight interesting facts, features, and flora in each unique location and are led by fitness experts, park rangers, and hiking enthusiasts!
