We will walk a loop, half of it will be on the road (almost no traffic since this is a dead end), a half will be on a hiking/biking unpaved trail that parallels the road on the south side of the ridge through a nice second growth forest. Total distance will be 2.8 miles.
On I-275 north of Knoxville take exit 3 to merge onto I-640 E toward Asheville. At 2.3 mi take exit 6 for Old Broadway/US-441 toward Broadway . Turn right onto Old Broadway for 0.5 mi then turn right onto Ludlow Ave. After 0.3 mile this changes to Sharp's Ridge Memorial Drive. After entering the park, drive along the ridge about 0.7 miles until you get to the scenic overlook on the left. We will meet there.
