Giving Tuesday 2019
December 3, 2019
Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving, powered by social media, the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. Friends of the Smokies #GivingTuesday 2019 supports the Rehabilitation of the John Oliver Cabin Trail for Accessibility.
This Giving Tuesday project in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park will rehab unpaved, uneven trail to the John Oliver cabin between the designated parking area along the Cades Cove Loop Road and the cabin. The trail is currently 0.3 miles in length. It is expected that the trail would be rehabilitated to have an accessible surface and be at least 8 feet wide to allow for passing of visitors and for wheelchairs in this high use area. (Total Project Cost: $175,000)
