Tour de Wolf Trailhead

Tour de Wolf | rerouted 5.79 miles

This loop travels through the northeast portion of the Park and is an excellent trail for hiking, running + mountain biking. The new and improved trailhead is located right off of the Methodist LeBonheur Memorial Hospital Path to Play. The Tour de Wolf is under renovations thanks to a grant from the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation. Be on the lookout for Park Rangers rerouting the trail to prevent erosion and to bring you past hidden lakes and wildlife viewing areas on a sustainably built trail. Follow the "DeTour de Wolf" signs to help you find your way!
