Absolutely beautiful, lovely walking trails and very close to the water. I loved walking around here on a crisp Fall day, I would definitely come back here!
I discovered this hidden gem close to downtown Knoxville several months ago when I was looking for a new biking location. The Will Skelton Greenway makes its way through Ijams Nature Center and connects to the Forks of the River WildLife Management Area. Ijams Nature Center has a an excellent variety of programs and demonstrations suited for all age groups... More
It's been awhile since I've visited Ijams but it's a wonderful nature facility. There is so much to see here that you do not see in your own yards and outside area. The staff put on all types of nature walks in the day time and at night. Great for kids!!! Such a wonderful place to just walk and see... More
My spouse and I took our dog for a walk here this weekend. I had not been there in years but ran across a map and brochure called "Knoxville Urban Wilderness" (we picked it up at Three Rivers Market/Co-op) and the map showed how the trails here hook into a new huge network of trails around the city. That got... More
Many trails, both forest, hilly and river side boardwalks. You can have weddings here, great educational experience for children, picnic- somehting for everyone. Just want to sit and enjoy the beuaty- that's available as well
Go here all the time. Bike rides and walks on the greenway. Off-road biking, scout functions, zombie fear, fishing in the quarry pond, hiking. We love it all and we love Ijams for having it all!!
Bring your bike, or just prepare for a hike. It has trails, welcome center, areas to hold events, etc. If you love the outdoors, you should start here when you visit Knoxville.
Although I am a Knoxville native, I was asleep at the switch when this area made a transition from marble quarrying to nature preserve. I was looking for entertainment for my brother, sister-in-law, and their dogs when I thought of this place. Their first visit was also mine, and I'll be returning. Lots of trails through woods and along the... More
This place in right in the city of Knoxville. Being new to the area, we took some time on a beautiful Sunday to check it out. The river boardwalk is very pretty and we even saw otters swimming in the river ! Not too many people, so was quite peaceful.
(Pronounced "imes") Ijam's is my favorite place to visit while in Knoxville! I always do the "hike" which is more like a stroll to the River boardwalk, which is really easy to find with directional signs. It's beautiful, I could sit on the boardwalk all day! The best time to visit it in the fall, it's a brisk, refreshing temperature... More
