Warriors Path State Park was named for the parks proximity to the ancient war and trading path used by the Cherokee. Since that time, the park land has known a long history of travelers, and is still a pathway for modern-day outdoor enthusiasts. The 950-acre area, acquired from the Tennessee Valley Authority in 1952, sits on the shores of TVA’s Patrick Henry Reservoir on the Holston River, a popular site for water recreation and boating. There are more than eight miles of trails for biking.

In 2007, Warriors Path became the nations first state park to open a boundless playground. Darrells Dream Boundless Playground opened with a variety of outdoor recreation experiences for children of all abilities. The fulfillment of Darrells Dream was made possible by outstanding support from Friends of Warriors Path, an organization that assists the park in its efforts to preserve and enhance its existing facilities and resources. The park also includes Lions Narnia Braille Trail with eight sensory stations along a quarter-mile, wheelchair-accessible trail that tells the story of Aslan, the lion in C.S. Lewis Chronicles of Narnia fantasy. The park also includes a fully-accessible treehouse and Palmer Center Foundation Amphitheater is a fully-accessible facility, able to host audiences from 200 to more than 1,000.
