Experience the Cherokee National Forest!
Just south of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, near Chattanooga, Tennessee, lies the Cherokee National Forest. While both wilderness areas share the same gorgeous Appalachian landscape, the national forest offers considerably more outdoor recreation opportunities! The tiny community of Reliance is in the heart of it all, and we're proud to name our event after this outdoor mecca.
We're also excited to partner with Hiwassee Ocoee State Park to use the Gee Creek Campground as our home base for the event! Just a few miles downstream from Reliance, the campground is the perfect launching point for endless adventure. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Tennessee Gravel project and its ongoing efforts to promote and preserve this amazing playground we are privileged to call our backyard!
