Big Ridge State Park
Located in the Appalachian Ridge, just north of Knoxville, Big Ridge State Park gets its name from inhabiting a topography of narrow ridges flanked by stream valleys. Many travelers come for the recreational opportunities of Big Ridge Lake and Norris Lake. Others like to explore the 15 miles of hiking trails spanning the 3,687 acres of this eastern Tennessee park.
Lush hollows, lakeshores, dry ridges, and remains of early settlements, including the Norton Gristmill, exist with the sandy beaches, picnic areas, and boat launches to provide a smorgasbord of recreation and natural beauty. Festival-minded folks enjoy the annual Easter Egg Hunt and Bluegrass Festival held in August, while park rangers lead ghoulish night hikes during the Halloween season.
