Tsali targeted for trail work

Written by 

The famed mountain bike trails of Tsali will get a workover this fall thanks to federal stimulus funding.

Vegetation will be trimmed back 4 feet on both sides from the center of the trail and 10-feet overhead, and areas with poor drainage will be fixed. A local contractor won the bid to perform the work on the 27-mile trail system.

Work will be done only on weekdays, and only short sections will be closed at any given time, which will be identified at trailheads.

“While this maintenance work is very important for ensuring a sustainable trail system, we have tried to minimize the short-term impact to the users as much as possible,” said District Ranger Steve Lohr.

    That was the question constantly asked to me when friends and curious folks alike found out I was interviewing Kevin Costner. Yes, that Kevin Costner. You see the Academy Award-winning actor/director fronts a country/blues band called Modern West. They’ll be performing at the Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts in Franklin on April 24.
