Listen to the story.

From the press release:

Have you heard about Stringer’s Ridge, but never been? Know exactly where it is, but not how to access it? This is your chance!

Join the Tennessee River Gorge Trust, Trust for Public Land, and Outdoor Chattanooga on Saturday, May 22nd for “A Morning On Stringer’s Ridge” from 10:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. Stringer’s Ridge is a natural sanctuary in the heart of North Chattanooga and will eventually offer hiking and biking trails with spectacular views of the Scenic City and its surroundings.

This family-friendly event will serve as an opportunity to preview the property that TRGT and TPL have partnered to protect. Activities will include two guided tours of the wilderness park (at 10:30 and 11:30 a.m.), self-guided tours of the park, brief talks by Civil War historian Jim Ogden, and activities such as nature bingo for children. The guided hike will be moderately strenuous. Be sure to wear sturdy shoes and pack a picnic lunch. These trails are not suitable for strollers, so carrying small children would be preferable.

Parking is available near the entrance of Old Bell Avenue off of Cherokee Blvd. (right behind Nikki’s Restaurant). Be sure to look for signs and volunteer parking attendants!
