Lone Star Purchase Fills a Gap

The state of Tennessee continues to move forward with the acquisition of over 6,600 acres of land in Cumberland County adjacent to Interstate 40. The purchase effort, largely through TennGreen requires over $6 million before the tract can be secured. Acquisition of the land provides a crucial link and closes an huge gap in the 300 mile corridor of the Cumberland Trail between Daddys Creek and Ozone Falls State Natural Area. When complete, the CT will gain 45 miles of trail with one gap of less than two miles.

Ozone and Devil’s Breakfast Table Progress

Two key links in the 300 mile Cumberland Trail are very close to completion. Both sections are roughly 6 miles and link available parking areas.  When open, Devil’s Breakfast Table Section creates an uninterrupted 20 mile hike from Nemo Bridge in Morgan County to Peavine Road in Cumberland County.
