Old Quarry In Knoxville, Tennessee

As a second part to an earlier post entitled, Ijams Nature Center In Knoxville, TN, the following photographs include scenes from another trail known as Haworth Hollow (see marker, below):

It’s difficult to read the small print, which cites that the area houses the rare Berry Cave Salamander, known almost exclusively from five caves within a 12 mile radius of Knoxville, Tennessee.

Walking along the trail seemed rather uneventful, until I turned a corner to see the beginning of a quarry with a limestone wall reaching approximately 100′ tall. It was quite a surprise!

  1. What a beautiful place, this is great!

    1. Thanks, Liza. It was a blast hiking through the old quarry and forest – glad I found this spot!

  2. I used to live in Clarksville Tennessee while stationed at Ft. Campbell. One of my favorite things about that State is its natural beauty and abundance of outdoor trails. I would travel around both Tennessee and Kentucky to bike the trails. It’s like entering a whole new world once you enter the woods. Especially if you are near the mountains in East Tennessee. Used to find all sorts of structures and mysteries from the past out in the woods. Loved the pictures. Great post.

    1. Thanks. I’m new to the area and happy to have found this old quarry – great structures and hiking. I’ll definitely be returning for another visit!
