Indian Boundary Loop Trail Bridges To Be Replaced

USDA Forest Service officials at the Cherokee National Forest announced that work will begin September 1 to replace thirteen foot bridges on the Indian Boundary Recreation Area Loop Trail. The bridges are in various degrees of deterioration and are being replaced for public safety and to enhance visitor outdoor enjoyment. 

During replacement work the trail will be open. However, sections of the trail where work is underway will be closed. Beginning September 21 the fishing access parking area will be closed while it is being used to store building material and equipment. The project will be ongoing through fall and winter of 2020-2021.

Tellico District Ranger Stephanie Bland said, "Indian Boundary Recreation Area is one of our most visited sites. Visitors go there to camp, hike, bike, view wildlife, fish and to just enjoy the beautiful surroundings. Public safety and providing lasting outdoor recreation experiences is a very high priority for us. We realize that this project may be an inconvenience for some visitors but the overall improvement to the trail will be very worthwhile."

The Indian Boundary Loop Trail is a 3.1 miles hike/bike trail around a beautiful 96 acre lake.

The Indian Boundary Recreation area also offers a swim beach, small boat launch, accessible fishing pier and an 87 campsite campground.
