I love to hike and explore. Jim and I are always looking for new places to do both and Jim found a TVA table listing the trails around the TVA dams. It specifically lists three hikes around Norris Lake (easy to moderate) with maps. But it is hard to know where the trails actually are (no reference point), so I found this interactive map that does a better job with the big picture. Two trails are closer to Norris dam and a third is near Loyston Point Recreation Area, west of Big Ridge State Park. All all close enough for a half-day trip.
Life is an Adventure.
