The race will feature a fire tower that you'll have to climb and a swamp boardwalk that is almost a half-mile across.
The race will offer enough scenery and elevation for the most grizzled trail runner but should be doable for the first timer.
After the first 25K, you'll leave the campground and travel on the park road to the Rocky Knob Trail
, a challenging trail featuring some interesting rock formations. This trail intersects with the horse trail on the northwest end of the park.
This is a wider mainly flat trail that will give you time to rest to get ready to climb the trails to the watchtower passing through one of the most remote, beautiful, and unused trails in the park. You then arrive at the fire tower once again and after leaving the firetower, travel back to the start on the west and north end of Travis McNatt lake.
Flora & Fauna
Hardwoods and pine forests, deer, turkey and squirrels.
History & Background
The history of the area comes from the local sheriff Buford Pusser, who is known for his virtual one-man war on moonshining, prostitution, gambling, and other vices along the Mississippi–Tennessee state line.
