GO BIG 2017 Healthy Hike: Oscar Blevins Farm Loop, August 19

Oneida, TN (2017-08-15)  Explore your national park with our next GO BIG Healthy Hike on the Oscar Blevins Farm Loop trail Saturday, August 19, at 10:00 a.m. (ET).  Join Ranger Leo at the trailhead parking lot just west of the campground on Bandy Creek Road for an easy 3.7 mile hike.  We’ll explore this beautiful trail that features Muleshoe rock shelter, sandstone bluffs, deep woodlands and the historic Oscar Blevins farm.  Bring water, snacks, bug spray, and lunch to enjoy, and don’t forget to bring your GO BIG Challenge booklet so you can earn those points located along our journey!

The GO BIG 2017 Challenge is a year-long park-wide event designed to motivate visitors to go out and explore their park.  Participants will earn points by answering questions about the nature and history of the park that will require exploration in search of site-specific information.  Some answers may even require a photo to be taken.  Points will also be given for miles hiked, biked, paddled, or equestrian-ridden so you can get started today!
