HIGHLIGHTS:

Resting on the southern shore of Norris Lake, the state park features over 15 miles of trails that wind along the park’s ridges and hollows, over old roadbeds, alongside the lakeshores, and beside cemeteries and remnants from early settlements; within the park, bicycles are allowed on the paved roads only, but there are miles of less-traveled country roads surrounding the park that can provide hours of scenic road riding; three backcountry campsites are hike-in only; 49-acre Big Ridge Lake offers a popular swimming spot, sandy beach, volleyball, tennis, horseshoe, basketball, softball fields; row boat rentals available; paddlers and anglers can access Norris Lake at the boat launch just outside the park’s entrance; this is a great start location for cyclists to ride the scenic backroads
