||An extraordinary ride along the river and past some of the nicer homes in the Knoxville area. Flowers and flowering trees abound from spring through fall. But watch out... for here among the savage beauty lurks... yes... the dreaded H-I-L-L-S. Note the switchbacks near the entrance at position 5... and be forewarned!|
|1||Mile 0.00||WEST GREENWAY ENTRANCE|
|We begin our adventure at an entrance to Sequoyah Hills Park. The Greenway consists of a paved trail on a small causeway in the middle of the roadway.||We take note of a multi-million dollar plus cottage near the entrance.|
Near this site is the former landing of the ferry that served the Peter Blow farm. Peter Blow came to Knoxville in the 1890's and operated Southern Brass and Iron Company (present day site of the Tennessee Theatre). In 1910 he sold the business and moved his family to a four hundred acre farm by the river, which was reached by way of Blow's Ferry. Blows Ferry Road takes its name from this ferry.
|2||Mile 0.90||INDIAN MOUND|
This mound was constructed by Native Americans between AD 900 - 1100 and contains the remains of individuals who lived in nearby settlements. The mound was reduced in height due to agriculture and excavations in the early 19th Century. Another excellent example can be seen behind the University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine on Neyland Drive.
|3||Mile 1.00||SEQUOYAH HILLS PARK|
Yes, Mabel... there's a pottie here... and drinking water too.
|Plenty of parking for the trusty Tracker... and we're on the bicycle and off in a cloud of dust.||Brilliant flowering shrubs and trees are at their peak.|
When the dogwood trees bloom, the path becomes the Sequoyah Hill dogwood trail
|The homes and the landscaping is extraordinary throughout the Greenway.|
