Located on Edgemoor road east of Solway park, Haw Ridge is an excellent park for walking, running, and bicycling. The 780 acre park was donated to the City of Oak Ridge in 1972 by the Department of the Interior for recreational use. The park is closed on TWRA hunt days. For more detailed information about the park including trail maps and photos, please check out the Friends of Haw Ridge website.
