From I-640, take Exit 6 - Broadway/US 441. From the exit ramp, go south on Broadway (towards downtown). If you are coming from the west, turn right onto Broadway. If you are coming from the east, turn left. Go 0.7 mile on Broadway until you reach Ludlow, where you will turn right. Stay on Ludlow for 0.5 miles until you reach a gap on the ridge (coordinates N 36.0090°, W 83.9343°). Go to the left at this gap; you are now on the main road along the top of the ridge.
Sharp's Ridge Memorial Park is 111 acres, with unpaved trails running through beautiful forest. The multiple trail system leads up to some of the most breathtaking overviews of Knoxville and its surrounding counties. Two reservable shelters and multiple picnic tables are available in the park. Sharp's Ridge is the perfect vantage point to view what Knoxville has to offer. Sharp's Ridge Memorial Park is one of the best places in the Knoxville region to observe migrant songbirds during the spring.
