    William Hastie Natural Area

    Directions: From I-40, take the James White Parkway exit 388; follow James White Parkway over the Tennessee River; take the Moody Ave. exit (last exit); turn left onto Sevierville Pk; stay on Sevierville Pk for approx. three miles; pass Marie Myers Park on your right; remain on Sevierville Pk; shortly thereafter, follow the sign to turn right onto Margaret Rd. which leads into William Hastie Natural Area

    Mountain biking is a natural fit for Knoxville's hilly terrain, and riders will have over four more miles of new, wooded trails to enjoy thanks to the Appalachian Mountain Bicycle Association's winter of hard work at the William Hastie Natural Area. The group logged more than 1,000 labor hours at the 75-acre site this winter, cutting trails that are suitable for hiking, trail running and mountain biking.Working with the Lake Forest Neighborhood Association, Parks and Recreation continues to look at ways to make this public wilderness more friendly.
