Upcoming Upper Cumberland Hikes and Programs:

CORONA VIRUS NOTICE: May 2, 2020:

As parks reopen across the state, TTA Chapters should follow the guidelines as stated by the Local, State, and Federal authorities.

This is an interpretation of these guidelines for any hike or event designated as a Tennessee Trails Association event as approved by the Tennessee Trails Board of Directors:

· In order to practice social distancing, all participants should arrive in their own transportation. No carpooling.

· Hikers should travel less than an hour from their home to a planned hike

· Hikes should have 10 or less participants. Try to hike at times when the park is less crowded, especially the parking lot and trailhead.

Be aware of changes that may lessen or increase these restrictions as the recovery progresses.
