Protecting nearly 31,000 acres, South Cumberland State Park is the largest state park in Tennessee, consisting of nine discrete tracts, accessed from 12 different trailheads. Highlights include the fabled Fiery Gizzard Trail, Stone Door, Greeter Falls, Buggytop (Lost Cove) Cave, Sherwood Forest, the Sewanee Natural Bride, Foster Falls and more. The park stretches across the southern Cumberland Plateau from Sewanee to Monteagle and Beersheba Springs. The Friends of South Cumberland State Park have opportunities for volunteers who are willing to help with trail work, and our many annual events, programs and activities. All ages and skill levels are welcome. Bring yourself, your family, your Scout or Church group, and give back to nature as you explore and protect one of the most beautiful wilderness areas in Tennessee!

CCC Interpretive Camp Cleanup

Grundy Forest State Natural Area at South Cumberland State Park

Volunteers are needed to help clean up the CCC interpretive Camp in the Grundy Forest. Strong January storms damaged the area, and it remains closed. Please be prepared with sturdy footwear and plenty of water/snacks. Those with a favorite pair of gloves, a stiff garden rake, and a 4-wheeled wagon or other garden cart suitable for hauling fireplace-length logs and branches are asked to bring them. Meet in the Grundy Forest parking area in Tracy City 15 minutes prior to start time. Most of the work will involve moving logs and branches to a nearby brush pile, and restoring the interpretive trail through the site.
