Urban Wilderness Expands

Please join us on Wednesday, June 1, 2016 at 10:30 am for the opening of FIVE NEW TRAILS on Baker Creek Preserve and the NEW RED BUD BRIDGE connecting Baker Creek Preserve into Knoxville’s Urban Wilderness! This bridge was constructed by Legacy Parks Foundation and the Appalachian Mountain Bike Club with funding from national retailer REI and private donations. The new trails were funded by a Recreational Trails Program grant from the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation. This expansion adds 100 acres to Knoxville’s Urban Wilderness and over 7 miles of trail. The new trails include two dedicated downhill mountain bike trails, a 1.5 mile beginner loop trail and two multi-use trails.

Local dignitaries, community members, AMBC and Legacy Park Foundation representatives will participate in a brief program and the official trail and bridge opening. Please confirm your attendance by emailing Cameron at Park at 4301 Sevierville Pike.
