On a hot day this is the place to be. The cool waters (the average is 49ºF) in the Clinch River keep the air noticeably cooler along this trail at the base of Norris Dam. This trail is paved with crushed, packed, limestone gravel making it a great trail for just about anyone. This trail is also a birder’s paradise. In the early hours of the day or evening, you can also observe red fox and white-tailed deer. Norris Dam is about 30 miles north of Knoxville, Tenn., off I-75, exit 122.
