Center Hill Lake campground converted into tobacco-free trail
Tennessee Tech University students clear small brush in areas to reveal scenic views at Center Hill Lake.
About 30 volunteers converted the former Hurricane Bridge Campground today into the revamped “The Old 56 Trail” at Center Hill Lake in support of National Public Lands Day.The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Nashville District coordinated with the DeKalb County Health Department on the development of the trail, and garnered additional support from Tennessee Tech University’s Fisheries Society, DeKalb County High School students, and other volunteers and partnerships. The volunteers installed trail sign-age, distance markers, and benches. Small brush and overgrowth were taken out to reveal scenic views.
