Family Friendly "TRACK Trail" Now Open

The Partners are proud to sponsor the first TRACK Trail in the State of Tennessee. TRACK Trails are part of the popular Kids in Parks program, an expanding network of family-friendly outdoor adventures located in multiple states. Each TRACK Trail features self-guided brochures and signs that turn each visit into a fun and exciting outdoors experience. Best of all, kids can earn prizes for tracking their adventures.

Officials shake hands at opening of the family friendly TRACK Trail.

A Grand Opening was held at the Chilhowee Recreation Area. Members of the public attended the opening ceremony, then walked the new trail, enjoyed McCamey Lake and other nearby recreation amenities.
