Wartburg TN – Alley Ford. The Obed Wild and Scenic River Park consists of four streams that have cut into the sandstone of the Cumberland Plateau creating rugged landscape wild and water. There are spectacular gorges with 400 ft cliffs above the streams and huge sandstone boulders dotting the streams creating large whitewater rapids in the rushing water. We will hike approximately 5 miles in and out at Ally Ford. The trailhead begins at Rock Creek Campground adjacent to Nemo. Preregistration is required due to the weather conditions. We will tailgate at 9am from the parking lot at the Ingles parking lot at Merchants Rd off 1-75 exit North.
