Urban Hikes in the Knoxville/Knox County Area
“Urban hiking is a form of hiking which takes place in an urban environment, rather than in nature. While on an urban hiking expedition, people may explore points of interest around the city they hike in, find new and interesting places in the region, or stop for food in local eateries. Depending on how the trip is organized, it may take only an hour or so, or it may occupy the better part of a day.” (http://www.wisegeek.c...)

We'll be taking urban hikes in the Knoxville/Knox County area. Our choice of outings reflects a desire to enjoy more than the physical exercise component of hiking, so we are inclined to describe hike venues in terms of potential for stimulating sightings of flowers, birds, architecture, vistas, or their role in important historical events.

Under the sponsorship of the Harvey Broome Group of the Sierra Club, three members of this group have created an online urban hiking guide for Knoxville and Knox County. Here's the link:
