Denny Cove opens in Marion County

Deputy Commissioner for Parks and Conservation for the State of Tennessee Brock Hill spoke to those assembled being joined by Park Ranger personnel (l to r) Murray Beasley, John Ball, Billl Knapp, and George Shinn for the dedication ceremony

Local public officials and representative from many of the organizations that are responsible for the purchase and development of the Denny Cove portion of the South Cumberland State Park were on hand to celebrate the opening of the hiking and climbing destination in Marion County Friday.

The event was the capstone of several conservation and hiking/climbing organizations’ multi-year effort to have a premiere climbing destination for the public in the area. Be sure and see our March 23 South Pittsburg Hustler and March 28 Jasper Journal as we hope to chronicle the whole monolithic effort to bring this to fruition.
