February 16, 2019 @ 10:00 am – 3:00 pm
Nemo Picnic Area or Rock Creek Campground

A day of trail work and hiking will take place on the 2.5-mile
section of the Cumberland Trail at the Obed Wild and Scenic
River between Nemo Picnic Area and Alley Ford adopted by
TCWP in 1998. Participants should dress appropriately for
winter weather, 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 in Oak Ridge at the
Gold’s Gym/Books-A-Million parking lot (meet at the end
close to S. Illinois Avenue, near Salsarita’s) in time to leave
Oak Ridge at 9 a.m. EST, 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 February 23.)
Participants will need to sign a National Park Service volunteer
form (parent’s or guardian’s signature required for minors).
Forms can be requested in advance from TCWP; NPS
representatives will also have forms available at the event.
