House Mountain

Only ten miles from Knoxville, House Mountain is located in Corryton, Tennessee. It’s the highest peak in Knox County, with an elevation of 2110-feet above sea level.

With seasonably warm temperatures, yesterday, I hiked approximately five miles and enjoyed a display of colorful autumn foliage. From a base elevation of 1000-feet, I ascended the White Trail, which ends at the West End Overlook and features views toward Knoxville, the Great Smoky Mountains and the Cumberland Mountains out toward Oak Ridge.

Prints Available

You can visit my gallery at Pixels to discover many fine prints of the photographs featured, herein. Print types include: framed, canvas, art, metal, wood, poster, acrylic and tapestry. Framed prints may also be customized, with options for size, frame, mat, mat width and paper.

Here are photographs from along the trail to the West End Overlook:

On top of House Mountain, the 1.5 mile Crest Trail allows hikers to traverse a scenic ridge. Here are a few photographs:

At the end of the line, the East End Overlook provides a view of Clinch Mountain, the parent of House Mountain, and the ridge and valley toward Blaine and Rutledge. Here are a few photographs from the East End Overlook:

With expansive views and several flat rocks available for seating, I enjoyed a snack and conversation with other hikers before backtracking to the Blue Trail, to begin my descent.

This photograph was taken along the Blue Trail:

    So beautiful, Phil! I love seeing all the different colors in the trees, our palm trees just don’t wow us in the Fall! 🤣🌴
