Hiking Trails: Loyston Point

Near: Knoxville, TN (north)

Trails: The trails I’ve hiked here are:

  • Point 19 Trail (1.5 miles): Ends on a stretch of beach (which, at low water levels, offers some significant area for exploration).

This is a small recreation across Norris Lake from Big Ridge State Park, and east of Norris Dam State Park.

One thing to note: hunting is allowed in the area, so be careful.

Trailhead: On Club House Drive in Andersonville, TN (there are signs pointing the way, but Google Maps only seems to mark Hemlock Bluff Small Wild Area). The trailhead itself sits between the day use area and a boat ramp; it’s behind the sign and restroom near the parking lot.
