Discover Sevierville’s Best Kept Secret! Burchfiel Grove and Arboretum is a Dog Friendly Trail in the Smokies! But it’s so much more than that; it’s an integral part of the city’s expanding Memorial Greenway system. The Arboretum boasts a 2.22-mile long, paved walking trail. The trail is pet friendly and is a favorite among joggers, cyclists, and fishermen.

The  riverwalk trail meanders along the banks of the West Fork of the Little Pigeon River and affords opportunities to view waterfowl and other wildlife. A fine view of Mount LeConte and the crest of the Great Smoky Mountains is front and center when looking southward along the path. 

A free brochure guides visitors to over 70 unique trees in the Grove. Each tree has an identifying sign providing information on the specimen’s scientific name, common name, and growth habit. The Grove has proven to be a valuable resource to businesses and homeowners interested in learning which trees, shrubs and other plants are best suited for their landscapes.

Burchfiel Grove and Arboretum is managed by the professional staff of the City of Sevierville Department of Parks and Recreation with assistance from the Trees/Trails and Beautification Committee.

Group tours are available at the Arboretum. To arrange a tour call 865-453-5441 or email bparker@sevierville.org.

The Burchfiel Grove and Arboretum is located just off Hwy. 411 (Chapman Highway) at Hardin Lane in Sevierville.
