      Hike Fort Dickerson Park

      Fort Dickerson Park is part of the Legacy Parks Foundation /Knoxville Urban Wilderness, and hiking in this area takes in Fort Dickerson Quarry Lake, as well as Fort Dickerson. The latter is an earthworks fortification (still existing) built in 1863-64 by the Union Army during the Civil War, and which withstood the Battle of Knoxville. We will meander among the trails near the Fort, and the quarry, for a total of about 4-5 miles, discussing the interesting history of this area. Rated easy.

      Meet at back of REI parking lot at 9am OR at the top of Ft Dickerson Rd. at the Interpretive Walk entrance at 9:30am. Leader: Diane Petrilla at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
