Please meet at the South Cumberland Visitor Center between 2:35 and 2:40.  The group will need to depart from there by 2:45, so please arrive early or on time.

To get to the visitor center, take I24 west from Chattanooga to exit 135.  Make a right.  In approximately half a mile, turn right onto Fairmont Ave.  In a quarter mile, make a slight right onto US41.  The visitor center will be on your left in just over 2 miles.

There is not really an address for the parking lot of the put-in, but it is well marked: From the South Cumberland Visitor's Center on 41, drive 3 miles into Tracy City.  Turn RIGHT at the SECOND stoplight. Drive 1.5 miles. Turn LEFT onto Lakes Road.  Arrive in Parking Lot on the Left.

    Met a group of nice people, gained a good bit of local knowledge from Park Greer. And everyone gained some safety training on how to right a capsized canoe. Very enjoyable afternoon

      Sure wish the gentleman who took pictures would post some of them. I was in the boat that flipped, and would love to have a souvenir picture!
