Alley Ford Cumberland Trail-day
A day of trail work and hiking will take place on the 2.5-mile section of the Cumberland Trail between Nemo Picnic Area and Alley Ford at the Obed Wild and Scenic River adopted by TCWP in 1998. Participants should wear sturdy shoes or boots and bring work gloves, loppers, small bow saws or folding saws, shovels and grubbing tools, as well as a lunch and plenty of water. Some tools will be available at the event.
Participants can meet for carpooling at the Books-A-Million parking lot on South Illinois Avenue in Oak Ridge (meet at the end close to Illinois Avenue, near the Waffle House) in time to leave Oak Ridge at 9 a.m. Eastern, or can join the crew at Nemo Picnic Area or Rock Creek Campground at 10 a.m. We expect to return to the trailhead by around 3 p.m. (NOTE: If the weather is uncooperative--excessive rain or snow and ice-we will reschedule for the following Saturday.)
