Join park rangers for a hike along the Cedar Hill Greenway in Oak Ridge on Saturday, May 12.
The hike, which is scheduled to start at 10 a.m. Saturday, will begin at Cedar Hill Park, the former location of Cedar Hill Elementary School.
Along the hike, rangers will discuss the early school system of Oak Ridge, early shopping centers, and housing in the Clinton Engineer Works, a press release said.
This 2.5-mile hike is considered moderately difficult, and some parts of the trail can wash out after a strong storm. Visitors are encouraged to wear appropriate footwear, insect repellent, and sunscreen, and bring drinking water, the press release said.
Cedar Hill Park is located at the intersection of Outer Drive and Michigan Avenue in Oak Ridge.
