Raccoon Mountain Reservior
Lora and I headed off to Raccoon Mountain to do some hiking. We went to the TVA reservoir on top of Raccoon Mountain. This was our first time up there so it was neat to check it out. Basically it is an extremely large water tower. When they let it out it also provides electric power.
There are miles of bicycling and hiking trails around this reservoir. We drove around the reservoir and checked everything out. We stopped and had lunch at the Laurel Point Picnic Area and then hiked the Laurel Point and Tennessee River Gorge trails. It is listed as a five mile loop.
