Take a short challenging hike right in the city! There are many trails and variations to the area but this hike will be described as a loop hike in counter clock motion. Take the main trail from the parking lot and then turn right on the blue blaze trails. There are many rock formations to see and winter views from this trail. After 1 mile you reach the red blaze trail it is 1.5 mile in length but will add a little more to your hike if you go all the way out to the rock outcrop for the best views from the top. Go back (west) on the trail for 1.5 miles until you reach the west overlook. Nice views but the scenery is littered with cell towers and buildings from the view of Knoxville accented with interstate noise. The connector to the white blaze trail is covered by blow downs at the time of this review so a little off trail is required to get to the white blaze trail. This trail is 0.8 mi and will quickly descend to the main parking lot to finish the loop.

Great trail. There are a few spots that would make it somewhat difficult for small children or older dogs, though I saw plenty of both on a beutiful/busy Sunday afternoon.

Nice hike for such a short drive. Incline is pretty steep at times, but worth it. Nice views of Corryton and surrounding areas. A little busy.

I took my 4 year old and we hiked his together. It took us a good while to complete bc of little legs but she made it! I would do it next time without kiddos. I thought it moderate (not easy) since its petty much all a steep climb UP a trail with a good deal of rocky parts. Still a good hike!!

Started at the trail head at 7:38am, and arrived back at my car by 10am. This hike is no joke....yes, moderate in skill level, but whew!!! GREAT hike, and I felt so accomplished and proud of myself when I was done! I did the full blue and white trails, plus the red one, from end to end. The look out to the East, gives you the best views and actual outlook. Standing on that huge boulder, made me feel like I was on top of the world. The look out the West....did not provide the awesome views of the Smoky's that I was hoping for. The trees were pretty thick, and no true "bald" outlook was available. It was at this point, the trail became very confusing. I almost had to make my own trail, or what I thought was the real trail, to get started back down the mountain. Very rocky terrain, and some moments where footing was not that stable. Be very cautious. Once you see the white square painted on tree....you'll know you are heading in the right direction.
Extremely gratifying hike, and I will definitely do it again.

I hiked House Mountain about 10 years ago (long before i was aware of All Trails) and loved it. Was my first hike I think. Took me a couple hours but was not crowded and great view from the top. Now that I am more experienced I really want to go back and do it again.
