The House Mountain State Park is a hiker’s paradise with enjoy trails and pathways which take your through the state park’s beautiful terrain. The trails take you to the highest point of the Knox county and the view from top is as breath-taking as the hike itself!
A must for nature-lovers, the park offers fantastic biking and bird-watching experiences. If you are not much of an active visitor, you can take an hour’s worth of walk through the green terrain.

Moderately strenuous hike just outside Knoxville. Pretty well kept. Highly recommended seeing both lookout points. Keep watch for well worn paths that are off the marked paths. We got lost for a stretch the first time and struggled to know where we went wrong.
Awesome views at the top of this short hike. Perfect weekend or after-work spot for a dose of tranquility.
Great hike that's close to town. Moderate climb good for most athletic levels. Beautiful views from the top.
Great place for a hike, plenty of elevation gain and a good view once you make it to one of three lookouts I found.
House mountain is not a bad place to visit if you are looking for a mountain experience without leaving the Knoxville area. House mountain is basically a lone "mountain" with two ~1 mile trails to the top. Both get rocky at times and I would rate them as moderate. They can be steep but due to the length it is manageable if you take your time. There are a couple of overlooks at the top of house mountain but nothing to write home about.
