Knox County Tennessee

IC King Park

I.C. King Park features access to the Tennessee River, 8 miles of nature trails, , picnic tables and plenty of fishing across some 219 acres.

Located at 3412 Alcoa Highway, this park touts miles of multi-use trails. Skirting the shoreline of Knob Creek, an inlet of the Tennessee River, and winding through heavily forested woods, these easy-to-moderate trails are a local favorite for hikers, trail runners, and mountain bikers. The shoreline and main trails are low in elevation change, but the trails that climb to the ridge are more strenuous with steep descents.

Update March 2017: Knox County crews began the groundwork to build another three miles of hiking and mountain bike trails at the back of IC King Park. Overall work on the entire 219-acre park should be complete within a few years. It will include trails, a picnic shelter, dog park, playground, rest rooms and parking.
