HIKING, BIKING, & FISHING
From the diverse hiking and biking trail systems to the pristine Elk River with some of the best trout fishing in the Eastern U.S., Elk River provides an outlet for every outdoor enthusiast. Our Town Trail takes hikers from Elk River’s Riverside Park up a beautiful waterfall, over creeks, along the Elk River, past the May Wildlife Rehabilitation Center and into Banner Elk for a beautiful walk for all nature lovers.
RIVERSIDE PARK & ROBBINS PARK
Riverside Park includes a deluxe playground plus an incredible new dog park nestled along the Elk River with a path leading to waterside decks, cabana and picnic areas. The unofficial afternoon “Yappy Hour” provides the perfect opportunity for socializing with members and their four-legged fur-kids.
Elk River Members enjoy sunsets gazing west, deep into the Tennessee mountains from the sprawling deck of Robbins Sunset Park. This newly redesigned space has room for picnic gatherings, live music with friends or a sunset glass of wine with someone special. A custom mountain map identifies many of the mountain peaks within view, expanding the experience from this mountaintop perch. As the newest gathering space in Elk River, the Robbins Sunset Park has a beautiful view waiting for all occasions!
