North Ridge Trail Work around Wedgewood Access Area Scheduled for June 4
In keeping with a long tradition, the North Ridge Trail in Oak Ridge will be the focus of National Trails Day, June 4. Participants should meet at the Children’s Museum at 9:00 a.m.
There be trail brushing and the possibility of step construction and/or water bars or broad-based drainage dips at a gully with bridge and slickness issues. Tools that would be helpful include clippers, loppers, handsaws, mattocks, shovels.
The North Ridge Trail and its access trails provide a lengthy path through woodlands with creeks, rocks, and wildflowers. Running east-west, the main trail is accessible at various places along the way.
The North Ridge Trail was built years ago by volunteers organized by event sponsor Tennessee Citizens for Wilderness Planning. It has been maintained by volunteers since then.
