Panther Creek State Park

Updated: Nov 30, 2022

This land was originally the settled land of Panther Springs, a community that was a prominent stop on the route from Knoxville to central Virginia in pioneer times. Today, the park has 1400 acres along the ridge of Cherokee Lake, a boat ramp, fishing, 10 miles of biking trails, 30 miles of hiking, 10 miles of horse trails, 50 campsites, a visitors center, and tennis courts. We did the Point Lookout Trail, which we all agreed was probably the best hike we've done in the Tennessee State Parks system and it dead ends in a secluded spot overlooking the lake and it's gorgeous. At the overlook, there's a cool sign the shows you the mountain range your looking at and identifying each mountain, so that's cool. And, be sure to say high to Teddy, the owl at the visitors' center who was wounded but is now rehabilitated and is gorgeous and has more personality than many people I know.
