About the Cumberland Trails Conference

The Cumberland Trails Conference (CTC) is an independent, membership based 501(c) (3) nonprofit corporation. The connection to the Tennessee Trails Association (TTA) was dissolved in January 2016.  Created in early 1997, the mission of the Cumberland Trails Conference is to build, maintain, acquire funding for, and promote the Cumberland Trail, under the auspices of the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC). In addition to hiking, the Cumberland Trail helps to preserve the historical and cultural heritage of Tennessee, conserve natural resources, provide educational and recreational opportunities, and connect local communities. The Cumberland Trails Conference achieves its mission from the efforts of  volunteers, and from financial support from membership contributions, grants and donations from various foundations, state and federal grants, and tax-deductible donations from supportive individuals.

The CTC sponsors various volunteer trail construction and maintenance programs throughout the year. One of the CTC’s largest volunteer events is a trail construction program, CTC Spring BreakAway,  that involves college and university students doing volunteer work during their annual spring break. This program  is a part of a nationwide collegiate program that allows college and university students the opportunity to provide various types of worthy volunteer work.

To help with trail maintenance, the CTC manages a trail adoption program. With this program, volunteers adopt various sections of the trail and perform maintenance on their section four times a year. In addition to volunteer trail events, the CTC hosts spring and fall hiking outings.

The Cumberland Trails Conference office is located at 409 Thurman Ave, Suite 102 in Crossville, Tennessee and can be contacted at ctcoffice2014@gmail.com or 931-456-6259. In the event that the CTC office is closed, questions involving volunteer opportunities or needed information on hiking/camping issues can be obtained through our alternative e-mail at c.trail.info@gmail.com.

Please consider volunteering and becoming a member of the CTC. With your help, the project will be completed, creating a lasting legacy.
