Bordered by the Clinch River, Melton Hill Park offers water access with 2 boat ramps, a fishing pier, as well as a sandy beach and swim area. In addition to the sand volleyball court and playground area, there's plenty of open space for romping around. Miles of trail weave through the park. You can walk, run or bike along the paved greenway or enjoy the natural surface trails that wind through the woods and meadows. 

Bicycling: In addition to the greenway that loops the large meadow, the park is a great start location for road cyclists. Mile of surrounding less-traveled backroads connect to the main road into the park, providing many scenic routes to explore. The terrain is rolling so expect a number of climbs and descents. 

Fishing: Surrounded by water with two boat launching areas, the park provides an excellent venue for anglers on the Clinch River. Please make sure to have an appropriate fishing license if you choose to fish.

Paddling: Enjoy paddling around the peninsula, skirting the edges of the sheer cliffs that rise from the river. There are two boat launching areas for easy access to the Clinch River. 

Trails: There are several loops along natural surface trails within the park. The wooded trail winds through the forest, skirting the shoreline with occasional spurs that take you waterfront. As the trail departs the woods it merges into a mowed path that meanders through a beautiful waist-high grassy meadow. There are several loops to the meadow trails, some winding down to the Clinch River.
