This is an unimproved woodland trail, so sturdy shoes are recommended. Sections may be slippery in wet weather. Meet at Anderson School building (county owned, but no longer a school) at 4808 Prospect Rd, Knoxville. (A portion of the parking lot is for hikers.)
We'll hike from Anderson School, first along streets to WIlliam Hastie Natural Area then Maries Myers Park to Ross Marble Quarry to Mead's Quarry. The toal distnce will be 7.1 miles. We will shuttle drivers back to the Anderson School.
To get to Anderson School from Knoxville take the James White parkway across the river to its end at East Moody Ave./Sevierville Pike. Turn left on Sevierville Pike and follow it for 2.4 miles to Centeroak Drive. Turn left on Centeroak for 0.1 mile to Prospect Road, and the Anderson School will be directly in front of you.
