Trail Work Day (Outpost 1) @ Old Forge Campground (Trail Head)

Outpost 1 will be having a trail work day on Saturday, August 15. We plan to tackle Little Jennings Creek Trail in the Horse Creek area of Greene County. The trail is a beautiful shaded trail that follows Little Jennings Creek and is generally cool. There are multiple very rocky creek crossings, so there is abundant water for the horses.

Chainsaw work is required to clear at least one large blow down, plus there is some overgrowth of rhododendron that will need clearing. Additionally there are a couple of areas where the creek has caused some erosion to the trail that will need to be addressed.

We will plan on having lunch at Round Knob Pavilion. Lunch will be provided by myself and Donna. Meet at the parking area at Old Forge Campground and be ready to ride out at 9:30 AM.  [From Greeneville, take TN 107 east (off US 11E) for six miles and then follow signs to Horse Creek Recreation Area (approximately two miles). From Horse Creek, turn right onto Old Forge Road and go about three miles. The road dead-ends at the campground.]

Please RSVP so we will know how much food to bring, and so we can plan parking. We will be following social distancing guidelines.
