Fiery Gizzard Re-routing Trail Volunteer Effort

"The nation’s largest, single-day volunteer effort for public lands was held last weekend, and the efforts of many centered on the Fiery Gizzard Trail re-route in South Cumberland State Park. After the threat to the Fiery Gizzard Trail made the evening news in Nashville and the front page of the Chattanooga Times, hundreds of people have responded, said Ranger Jason Reynolds."

"Ken Tucker of Tennessee’s Wild Side TV altered his schedule to come to Grundy County and film a piece on the trail issue. The story will begin airing across the state on PBS in early October."

"The volunteer efforts will continue every Sat. and Sunday through December, with workers meeting at the Grundy Forest Parking Lot at 9 a.m.

In mid-August, the rangers learned that a private landowner has withdrawn permission to cross his land, which will block one section of the popular 12.5-mile trail effective December 1. The linear trail, heralded by Backpacker Magazine as sixth in the nation on the list of Best Fall Foliage Hikes, is clearly one loved by many."
