Who are we?


The Tennessee Trails Association is a non-profit (501c3) organization, founded in 1968, whose mission is to promote the development of a state wide system of hiking trails.

Throughout the year, TTA members enjoy the many hiking opportunities afforded by the hundreds of miles of Tennessee Trails. You can do the same. If you like to hike, or think you would, check out our calendar and come hike with us!

Many TTA members also volunteer their time and energy to build and maintain trails on both public and private land throughout Tennessee. If you would like to be a part of this great effort, check out our volunteer opportunities and come work with us!

The float on Piney River is approximately 3 hours or more depending on how much paddling we do and the current. If we are able to get on the river by 10:00 am, then we might be done by 1:00 or 1:30 pm.  After we get off the river, we will go for lunch and hope to return to Hendersonville before rush hour trafficmaybe.   There is a link below this email so that you can read the information on the Pinewood Canoe and Camp website.       You may want to bring water, sunscreen, hat, dry clothes, shoes to wear kayaking and dry shoes,a snack to eat while kayaking, swimsuit and towel. No glass bottles allowed. The kayaks rent for $30 for a one seater.  They take cash or credit cards, and we pay when we get there.  There are restroom facilities at Pineywood’s office area.  Their website says not to use GPS for directions, but to go I-40 toward Memphis and take exit 163.  At exit 163, turn south (left) on highway 48 and go 6.6 miles, then turn right onto Cash Hollow Road and go a mile down Cash Hollow Road.  Please let Marcia Powell know no later than 2:00 pm Sunday, August 25 if you are joining us.  Email Marcia at mpow1221@gmail.com or call or text me at 217-855-3013.> > http://pinewoodcanoecamp.com/
