Dogwood Trails North
2.8 Miles | Trail begins at 1999 North Hills BLVD (37917)
Grand gardens, wide boulevards, tall hardwoods, greenways, parks and unique architecture best describe North Hills. Established in 1927, it is one of Knoxville's oldest neighborhoods and is the only neighborhood in the city to have a recognized arboretum. Lining the boulevards and shading North Hills Park, trees are as big a part of the neighborhood as the many historic homes. This charming neighborhood is a unique one-of-a-kind setting for classic homes with an interesting mix of Craftsman, Colonial Revival, Foursquare, Spanish Colonial Revival, Bungalow, Italian Renaissance, English Cottage, Neoclassical, and Minimal Traditional styles.
The National Register of Historic Places has designated a historic district along three of the neighborhood boulevards and includes about 130 homes and 50 acres.
The North Hills Garden Club was established in 1935 and remains a vibrant part of the community with a yearly spring plant sale which support its beautification efforts in the neighborhood. This trail has been an avid supporter of ‘Bazillion Blooms’, Dogwood Arts annual tree-planting initiative, and has added hundreds of dogwood trees thru the years.
