Beaver Creek Water Trail
Beaver Creek spans nearly the entirety of Knox County, beginning as a spring in Gibbs and flowing 44 miles into Fort Loudoun Lake. The watershed winds through five communities before emptying into the Clinch River.
The grassroots Beaver Creek Kayak Club has led the effort of making Beaver Creek the perfect place to paddle in our community. In collaboration with Knox County the two have undertaken the giant task of cleaning and clearing the creek of debris so that it a more navigable and healthy creek.
Legacy Parks supports the efforts by acquiring creekside property for parks and creek access and with funding and installing adaptive docks at strategic locations along Beaver Creek.
To date, Legacy Parks has built two parks along the creek – Roy Arthur Stormwater Park and Collier Preserve and installed the first adaptive dock, Aubrey’s Launch at Powell High School Landing. Two more docks are slated for installation in 2024.
