    North Knoxville

    Directions: Take the Broadway exit off of I-40 and go north about two and a half miles; turn left on Ludlow; turn right on Sharp's Ridge Memorial Road; as you go up hill the park is on both sides of the road.

    Sharp's Ridge Memorial Park offers one of the best views in the City to see the Smoky Mountains. The park features a scenic overlook platform with signage identifying each mountain peak.

    The park also features several unpaved walking/hiking trails. Sharp's Ridge is home to many songbirds and bird watchers often frequent the park to view them.

    The Knoxville Chapter of the Tennessee Ornithological Society holds many group hikes at Sharp's Ridge for bird watching.
