2023 Spring Hike Along the Ocoee

2023 Spring Hike Along the Ocoee – Saturday, March 18 at Whitewater Center Recreation Area (2:00pm).

Our cherished Spring Hike this year will be along the historical and scenic Ocoee River! We are going to hike the beautiful Rhododendron Trail. This is your chance to see one of Polk County’s most beloved rivers and learn all about what makes this river so special. This is your chance to partake in one of TN State Parks’ Signature Hikes with 2018 Appalachian Trail thru-hiker, Ranger Jeremy. This year we will meet at the Driving Bridge/Bathroom Area. This area is located in the western portion of the parking lot, about .2 miles west from the former Ocoee Whitewater Center. Then we will trek all the way down to the Thunder Rock Recreation Area and then all the way back up to where we started (approx. 3.3 miles total).

The trail is “easy” on a difficulty level. Make sure to bring sturdy hiking shoes and whatever else you might enjoy on this beautiful hike.

Parking at the Whitewater Center Recreation Area costs $3.00 per vehicle. The hike is a free event brought to you by TN State Parks

Address: 4400 US-64, Copperhill, TN 37317

When: Saturday, 2:00pm sharp

Note: The guided hike will be cancelled if inclement weather occurs.  Call 423-263-0050 for more information.
