To get to Warriors Path you have to go to and through Colonial Heights which has been brought up here a few times. Here are some pics. Again, so sorry about the yucky, buggy windshield

Thanks for sharing these. I didn't get to see any of the Eastern part of Tennessee when I was down there. We went straight down from Nashville to Lawrenceburg and then East and West some. It's great to get a look at the contrast in the mountains. Great pictures thanks. I checked out the pictures in the other post also.

Mbmouse, I've enjoyed these pictures and all of those you've posted previously. At one time Warriors Path was the most visited state park in the state. Do you know if this is still so? You and I are almost neighbors as I live between Kingsport and Fall Branch. I intend to post some pictures of my area if I ever become smart enough to do it.

I wish you would. I would love to see them. When you can only visit for a couple of short days you don't get to see alot. Come on I know you can do it.

Nice Pics Ms Mouse.

I really take notice that it seems like the landscape changes once you get out of Knoxville going down I-75 South. Its like we have more plush, thicker farm fields, and Its more green.
Where I noticed that on 81 and 40 from Bristol to Knoxville, Its more rolling hills,and it takes a while longer for the trees and flowers to bud.

Either way. this is in the top 5 most beautiful states in the whole U.S.

Yes, we are about neighbors!
I have no idea about the stats for Warriors Path. I do know they did a lot of renovation work over this past year. They added the second, much bigger play ground and fixed roads. They still have the Frisbee golf course through the woods, hubby likes that part hahahaha. We did not go up to the swimming area so I don't know about that part, but it sure is a great park that seems to have something for everyone.

Great pic's. I agree with NCG it IS so nice to see the area!!!

Any idea on how it got its' name? Wasn't there quite a few Cherokees in that area. My Grandmother (Mom's side) was half Cherokee. They were from Oklahoma so were probably moved out from the East...maybe "Trail of Tears" I keep saying someday I will do an extensive search. Just haven't got around to it yet.

Not sure on the name, I will look it up. My hubby is part Cherokee too. Yes, they are all over the Smokie Mountains.

Great pics, mbmouse. I have a question. What's a paddle boat? Can you fish out of it? I know john boats, rowboats, canoes and kayaks. I have seen paddle boats mentioned on state park websites. I'm just wondering if it's a different name for one of the aforementioned boats or if it's a different kind of boat, entirely.

It is a different type boat. there are two seats, side by side and each person has a set of pedal's at there feet and to make the boat move, you have to pedal it like a bike. There is a ruder in the middle between the two people to steer the boat. No they are not conductive to fishing, but they are fun and good exercise.
