Very close, good tacos and lots of good beer and margaritas a specialty too. Open late (2 am) and also family friendly, outdoor seating. Can walk to Baker Creek Preserve from restaurant. Local newspaper (Inside of Knoxville) reads: "SoKno Taco Cantina... is near several Knoxville landmarks. The Round-Up Restaurant, a south Knoxville institution for at least four decades.. Of course, the most talked about neighbor is just a block away at the Baker Creek Preserve, with bike and walking. The food is prepared fresh from scratch everyday, with an emphasis on, good food, well prepared, at blue-collar prices."

From website: As warm weather sweeps East Tennessee, we wake up to new sights and smells every morning ... dogwood, redbud, and wildflowers outdoors, and equally enticing aromas inside SoKno Market. Start your day with a cup of SoKno Joe and a breakfast sandwich, or stop by for lunch and try one of our craft sodas and a panini stuffed with Fox's Famous peachwood smoked barbecue. Can't get away until later? Wake up on your drive home with a handcrafted milkshake -- our Rocketman features Chadwick's Churn Vanilla Bean ice cream and a shot of our signature cold brew coffee. Features local artists.

Also a part of the South Loop trail of the Urban Wilderness (in back yard of this property). According to Blue ridge outdoor magazine: The Urban Wilderness is one of the crown jewels of today’s thriving outdoor scene in Knoxville. Consisting of 1,000 acres, 5 parks, and 42 miles of trails, this interconnected system of mostly single-track trails is a hotbed for running, hiking, and biking. The Main Loop of the Corridor is a 12.5 mile route that connects all of the various parks and their systems. A couple of must-see areas of the loop include the Hastie Natural Area which offers a lot for mountain bikers and trail runners and Mead’s Quarry (beautiful lake to swim in).

According to Blue Ridge Magazine: The greenway system is truly impressive here with over 65 miles of trails spanning the city. To cap off your first big day of adventure, take a spin or a run from the Outdoor Adventure Center alongside the Tennessee River on the Neyland Greenway to the UT Gardens. From there head north along the Third Creek Greenway through Tyson Park until reaching the Bearden Beer Market. This extremely popular hangout is perfect with a wide selection of brews and an outdoor beer garden.

Here's what Blue Ridge Magazine had to say "How about waking up to a morning dip within a deep blue lake set amidst rugged sheer cliffs? The Ft. Dickerson quarry is a perfect way to start your day with a location only minutes from the house. There are even a few trails here along the bluffs to get in a short morning leg-stretcher. Also a historical land mark with much to see."
