New OHV area in TN

New Multi-use area in East Tennessee

01/08/2001, Oliver Springs, Tennessee.

Coal Creek Mining and Manufacturing Company (CCMMC)
would like to announce that it has opened its 72,000
acres of land for
multi-use activities. They have over 250 miles of
trails for the enjoyment of ATVs, Motor Cycles, Jeeps,
4x4s, Rail-buggies, Mountain
Bikes, Equestrians and Hikers.

CCMMC is utilizing the services of the Windrock ATV
Club as consultants in the preparation, management,
and maintenance of the facility.
All trail-related activities will be coordinated
through Windrock ATV Club.

CCMMC land will be open for use by a land-use permit
system. All vehicles within CCMMC borders will be
required to have a permit
sticker. To acquire a sticker, the purchaser will be
required to sign a waiver stating they have read and
will obey the rules of the area and
also sign a liability waiver. Permit stickers are
available on a yearly basis for $50, or daily for $10.
These permits may be required for horses
and hikers and will be required by all vehicles
starting January 1, 2001.

CCMMC's land is located in four counties: Anderson,
Morgan, Roane and Scott. It runs from Harriman to
Carryville just north of Oliver
Springs and Lake City. The area contains many historic
sites, vistas and overlooks, and a wealth of wildlife.
CCMMC's land is the southern
boundary for TWRA's reintroduction of Elk in East
Tennessee.

CCMMC has several on-going enterprises that may
require some trails not be used for recreation on a
periodic or permanent basis due to
safety concerns. These trails will be clearly marked
and everyone is asked to obey the signs. Most of these
trails will be relocated around the
unsafe area to allow for continued use. Trail maps do
not currently exist but GPS mapping is underway.

Thanks Brad for the great info...just bumping it back to the top [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img].

Re: New OHV area in TN

A guy from the Zuk board followed up on this, here's what he found out, sounds real good [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]:

OK folks, here's the poop:

I just got off of the phone with Chuck Whicker of CCMMC, and he told me basically the same thing that this morning's post stated, but also specifically that
Trucks WILL be allowed to run the trails! They have been in contact with Bob Hazel and Leon Rosser about hosting 'Roundup' events there. They are printing
regulations & having stickers made now. In a couple of weeks, they will have a small network of businesses established to sell the passes, including the ATV club
mentioned earlier, a few service stations, and a 4x4 shop called Jim's Off-Road.
Jim has ridden the area for years, and welcomes the organization to manage the trails.

The trail head is just outside Oak Ridge, TN, near
Oliver Springs. Chuck made it CLEAR to me that no "foolishness" would be tolerated.

Now you know!
