It was a full weekend of fun at the second annual Outdoor KnoxFest last month! Outdoor enthusiasts gained valuable skills at the Outdoor KnoxFest clinics on fly fishing, disc golf, bike maintenance and rock climbing. Leisure riders toured the neighboring Dogwood Arts trails while mountain bikers set out to find where the nearest trails are from downtown. Knoxville’s Urban Wilderness was packed with trail runners and hikers, while the Outdoor Knoxville Adventure Center welcomed hundreds of children and adults as they tried their first slack line, climbing wall or standup paddleboard on the Tennessee River.
Join Legacy Parks and Missy Kane of Covenant Health every Wednesday morning in June and July to discover the wonderful local trails in our area. The 2013 Get on the Local Trails introduces hikers to the new trails in Knoxville's Urban Wilderness and local trails around the Knoxville area. Hikers will meet at 8:45 a.m. and will start hiking at 9 a.m.
