Legacy Parks Treasure — Fort Dickerson Park is part of the 1,000-acre Knoxville Urban Wilderness championed by Legacy Parks Foundation. We invite you to become a Friend of Legacy Parks where your donations help us build trails and expand this unique urban playground! Teamed up with Ijams, AMBC, TWRA along with the City and County of Knoxville, we are developing the 1,000-acre Urban Wilderness Corridor, that when completed, will connect ten parks, feature forty miles of recreational trails, four civil war sites, and diverse ecological features and recreational amenities. 

Knoxville's closest urban trails are just across the Tennessee River from downtown. There are 4 miles of trail which can be accessed from both the upper and lower entrances at Fort Dickerson Park. The trails connect the quarry overlook to the pool below, then wind through the forest over to the earthen fort. These machine-built singletrack trails utilize the unique terrain to create a system of trails with something for everyone - rocks, flow, scenic overlooks and the opportunity for a refreshing dip post-ride. Riders can make an easy connection to the Knoxville Urban Wilderness Trails via a short road section. Trails can be accessed via both the Main entrance and the Augusta Avenue entrance.
