Contact: Wally Linder, 423-569-2404 ext 321
The National Park Service is in the process of installing stream crossing protection on trails in the Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area. During this process, trails will need to be closed while the work is being performed. These projects will improve water quality, ensure better protection to a variety of species that live in the areas streams, and also improve visitor safety.

In the 1960's Congress requested the Army Corps of Engineers to study the feasibility of damming the Big South Fork of the Cumberland River just above the Devils Jump Rapid to create another reservoir. Had that happened Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area would never have existed.
