One of our most visited attractions at Windrock Park is the Buffalo Mountain Wind Farm, which is comprised of 18 windmills. The windmills are captivating and the view is breathtaking! The 15 largest windmills have a 256-foot tower with 139-foot blades and span 395 feet.
Permits for vehicles going to view the windmills are available at the General Store. One permit covers up to six passengers with a cost of $17.00. For safety reasons, the permit only allows access up to the “US Government Restricted Area” gate. There is no admittance beyond this gate.
The Nature Trail is the latest addition to Windrock Park. This trail allows our guests to take a stroll through the woods and around to the pond and picnic area. It is open to hikers and mountain bikers.
Beginning at the fire hydrant along Windrock Park Lane, the Nature Trail goes into the woods and turns left along the contour. The trail follows the lower slopes of the ridge, with a few gradual uphill slopes, continuing down the ridge until it intersects with the gravel road that leads to the bridge and around the pond. The trail continues as a loop around the pond to the picnic area. From the picnic area, the gravel road provides an easy hike back to the campground or heads back up the trail for a more difficult climb.
Blue trail signs mark the route! Test your tree knowledge with the interpretive signs along the trail.
The Devil’s Triangle, just north of Oak Ridge (TN) in the mountains of the Cumberland Plateau, is made up of some of the most unusual two-lane twisted roads in Eastern Tennessee and is a popular route for street bikes. Much like The Dragon, the Devil’s Triangle is rural Tennessee scenery at its best! These roads will take you on a scenic adventure with a view of Brushy Mountain State Prison, peaceful farmsteads and rustic countryside. You’ll ride gentle country road sweepers to steep switchbacks and serene straights to dragon-like twisties. This set of curvy roads will prove to be packed full of excitement for you and your street bike.
Windrock Park Campground is located right off of Hwy. 62 and is a centrally located, convenient choice for lodging while riding the Devil’s Triangle. Please call (865) 435-1251 for availability on cabins, RV sites or primitive camping!
