Part of the Legacy Parks Foundation/Knoxville Urban Wilderness, hiking in this area takes in Ft 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 quarry and the Fort, for a total of about 4-5 miles, discussing the history of this area. Rated Easy. Fort Dickerson is located at 3000 Ft Dickerson Rd., Knoxville, TN. Meet at the parking area at the top of Ft Dickerson Rd., near the earthen fort at 9 am.
