Our April trailbuilding exercise was attended and documented by the popular blogger – Exploring Chattanooga.

Have a read and see what fun it is to build trail with the Cumberland Trails Conference.

And there’s video!

Our April 8th & 9th Volunteer Event was a HUGE success!

The Tennessee Trails Association Highland Rim chapter’s Joan Hartvigsen and Marietta Poteet present a donation to the Cumberland Trail Conference’s Executive Director, Mike Croley.

Mike spoke at the chapter’s monthly meeting last night. His experience, expertise, and passion for the work was apparent as he talked about his vision for the CTC going forward.

Earlier in February, the TTA board made a contribution towards the CTC’s Spring’s Alternative Spring Break program. ASB brings students from out of state to learn how to sustainably build hiking trails by hand, and the student volunteers make a considerable contribution to work on the Cumberland Trail.

Alternative Spring Break - March 2022

Each year Cumberland Trails Conference host Alternative Spring Break for college students interested in volunteering their time to help build new trail. This year ASB will be March 6th-12th and trail building efforts will be on new sections of the Piney River Segment.
