Activity Overview

Hike Knox County's highest peak and see beautiful views of different parts of Knoxville at the top. House Mountain is a small mountain classified as a moderate to strenuous hike, with steep and rocky inclines on the way. It is near downtown so most locals go here for a quick, 40-minute hike. If you're a beginner hiker, prepare for quite an intense workout in the woods.

Things to Do

  • Plan for a half-day hike at House Mountain. Bring plenty of water and a camera. Wear proper hiking clothing to serve as protection from poison ivy growing on the trail. Hiking shoes are also recommended because the trail can get muddy on rainy days and you will need the traction for the steep hikes. The trails are dog-friendly too so you may bring your pets but remember to keep them on a leash.
  • Bring snacks and have a picnic at the top. The view of Knox County is stunning especially during winter.
  • Still hungry after the hike? If you brought food in the car, you can use the picnic shelter in the parking area to have a quick lunch. Restrooms are also available here.

House Mountain State Park Insider Tips

  • Try to avoid visiting during weekends. The trails can get crowded on weekends with hikers and their pets. Parking is scarce too so you need to get ahead of everyone to get a spot.
