Forks of the River Trail Use Guidelines

Forks of the River Wildlife Management Area is a public hunting area managed by Tennessee Wildlife Resource Agency. TWRA is a great partner and allows hiking and biking trails throughout the area, but users must be aware of the possibility of hunting activity at any time. For everyone’s enjoyment and safety, please note the following guidelines:

The interior trails are closed to all non-hunters during the following times:

Apr. 4th through May 17th
Before Noon Every Day

Sept. 6th through Feb. 28th
All day on Tuesday and Thursday
Before Noon on Saturday and Sunday

The Will Skelton Greenway and perimeter trails (Augie’s Run, Bluff and southeast Dozer) remain open at all times.The trail closings coincide with the Forks of the River WMA hunting schedule that supersedes the state calendar. The area is closed one hour after sunset until one hour before sunrise, except for raccoon and opossum hunters and scheduled events. All animals with non-hunters are required to be leashed.
