At just under five miles the Lake View Trail is the longest and perhaps the most challenging of the trails in Norris Dam State Park. The trail is also open to those who prefer to follow it on mountain bike or on horseback.
A little less taxing but just as rewarding is the Rock Creek Trail. This two mile trek takes you into the labyrinth of creek beds that line the valley floor. You will need to be reasonably sure footed for this trail as conditions in the valley can get somewhat moist and slippery.
Named after the owls that line trees of this easy, mile-long hike above the picturesque Gaylor Fishing Cove. But don't forget that owls are nocturnal, so you are best advised to explore this trail at twilight. Don't forget your flashlight!
