East Tennessee

Obed Wild & Scenic River Park - Alley Ford.  Obed consists of four streams that have cut into the sandstone of the Cumberland Plateau creating a rugged landscape of wild land and water. There are spectacular gorges with 400-foot cliffs above the streams, and huge sandstone boulders dotting the streams creating large whitewater rapids in the rushing water. The Obed system is a favorite destination for experienced kayakers and rock climbers. Join us for a fun short hike to Alley Ford and an afternoon of swimming in the Obed. The trail head is located at the Rock Creek Campground adjacent to Nemo. It is approximately 2.5 miles along the Cumberland Trail, rated easy to moderate. Wear swimming shorts and bring your water shoes and a noodle or blow-up tube/raft for floating. Also bring your food and water.  Pre-registration is required. We will leave Knoxville approximately 9 AM eastern.  Call, text, or email Sherry Barber for registration and carpooling requests.
