Working to get the sign in place

It was hot digging in the dry soil along State Route 25/70 to complete installation of “Wolf Creek Trailhead“ signs for Special Trails Ranger Gray Buckles and Back Country Horseman volunteers, Herb Heinze, Tom Conner, Robert Slagle, and Dianne Noyes.

Today, June 3, 2010, Cherokee National Forest Special Trails Ranger Gray Buckles was joined by a cadre of Back Country Horsemen of Eastern Tennessee volunteers to complete installation of “Wolf Creek Trailhead“ signs along State Route 25/70 leading into the back country of the Wolf Creek Cherokee National Forest in Cocke and Greene County’s. It was a hot, dry day for the completion of this project begun earlier this spring. The Back Country Horsemen volunteers have already racked up 400 hours of trail work this year, clearing forestry trails and building new trails for equestrians, hikers and hunters. Reflective tape on the familiar brown forestry signs direct trail enthusiasts to the newly completed parking lot at the Wolf Creek trailhead to access the spectacular natural beauty of Wolf Creek and its waterfalls. For detailed maps of this natural wonder visit the Cherokee National Forest Service at 344 Ashville Highway (SR 70), Greeneville, Tennessee or call 423-638-4109. Wolf Creek is just one of a number of trail systems maintained by the Back Country Horseman in the Cherokee National Forest.
