For this well-known local hike, we will ascend the West Overlook Trail, hike out the Crest Trail, and then hike back down the Mountain Trail. The 2,100-ft crest of House Mountain is the highest in Knox County. The trails are fairly steep through wooded terrain with rock outcrops. On the summit, the Crest Trail stretches the length of the mountain from the West End Overlook to the East Overlook offering wonderful views. Hike about 5 miles, rated easy to moderate. If you’d like to carpool from the west side of Knoxville, please meet at the Panera parking lot at 205 N Peters Rd. (off of Cedar Bluff) at 9AM or meet at the trailhead on Hogskin Rd. at 9:45 AM. $2.50 from Panera carpool fee.
Pre-registration is required. Masks are now required for all those participating in carpools, shuttles or key swaps, regardless of vaccination status. You may also choose to drive your own vehicle to the trailhead.
