House Mountain

I recently hiked House Mountain, the tallest point in Knox County, Tennessee, located near Corryton. With an elevation of 2,110 feet above sea level, hikers may ascend 1,000 feet from the surrounding valley on either the blue (Mountain) or white (West Overlook) trail.

Down The Mountain

As part of my House Mountain in Knoxville, TN series…

Part Four: Conclusion

It was a great day hiking House Mountain, and I certainly would recommend this as a day-trip for anyone in the area wishing to enjoy the great outdoors! Bring the proper clothing, water and camera – and prepare to rest along the way to fully enjoy the scenery. And, expect to be sore the next day!

 Following 4 miles of hiking up the Mountain Trail (blue trail) and back-and-forth along the Crest Trail, I began the 1-mile decent down the mountain. Here are some photographs I took along the way…

It’s difficult to see, but if you look closely at Photograph 3 & Photograph 4, you’ll observe that the trail turns abruptly at times, usually associated with steep, rocky terrain. In a few instances, I had to pack my camera in order to free both hands for a safe descent around such turns on the trail. So, be careful!

Visiting House Mountain –

If you’d like to review my collection of House Mountain photographs as prints, then stop by my gallery at Fine Art America to have a look around! Thanks.

I plan to return to the mountain for another hike, probably along a different (red) trail…so, see you then!

East Overlook On Crest Trail

As part of my House Mountain in Knoxville, TN series…

Part Three: East Overlook

With a storm-front expected to produce 1-2″ of snow the following day, I took advantage of a low-50’s, sunny forecast to enjoy the great outdoors. Hiking to the top of the Mountain Trail (blue trail), the East Overlook is a short 0.7 miles in each direction and provided a scenic setting…

Continuing uphill, interesting rock formations peppered the landscape, reinforcing the decision to bring my camera along for the hike. Here are some more photographs as I approached the East Overlook

I’ve included this short video to provide visitors with a panoramic view from the top of House Mountain:

After relaxing for a while to appreciate the scenery, I headed back toward the Mountain Trail (blue trail), observing various areas of interest along the way – such as:

I’ve uploaded some of these photographs to my gallery at Fine Art America, now available as prints – check it out!

West Overlook On Crest Trail

As part of my House Mountain in Knoxville, TN series…

Part Two: West Overlook

The Mountain Trail (blue trail) finishes at the 1-mile marker, where the Crest Trail begins. It’s a 1.5 mile trail along the mountain ridge, and I opted first to visit the West Overlook, which measures 0.8 miles in each direction.

Unlike the ascent, which featured some very steep and roughed terrain, the West Overlook trail is a relatively flat, sandy route. Here are a few photographs which I took along the walk…
