Beaver Creek Water Trail

Over the next few years, Knox County Parks & Recreation will work with strategic partners to clear a significant number of tree jams that are impeding the water flow and access, then work to clean up Beaver Creek of trash and debris, and finally build a program to care for this vital waterway that stretches all across the northern half of Knox County.

When complete, The Knox County Water Trail project will help mitigate flooding issues, improve water quality and establish Beaver Creek as an ever-lasting recreational facility for generations to come.
