On August 27th, I joined a sizeable group on the Tennessee River Gorge Trust's latest "Getting to Know the Gorge" hike for a tour of the trails on Stringer's Ridge. Much work has recently been done to clear the trails of storm blow-down.
The Tennessee River Gorge Trust has partnered with the Chattanooga office of the Trust for Public Land in a project to save much of Stringer's Ridge, adjacent to Chattanooga's North Shore area, from development. A network of trails has existed on the ridge for years, and has been used by mountain bikers and hikers. Now, work on trail improvements is scheduled to begin early next year.
