TVA manages more than 30 public trails (more than 180 miles) along the Tennessee River and its tributaries and on reservoir lands. You can help us by protecting and monitoring the trails to instill a legacy of conservation.
The Adopt a Spot program will allow adopters to assist Natural Resources staff by providing information on trails or backcountry informal recreation site conditions. You'll need to visit your spot four times a year, and submit a report after each trip.
TVA’s Thousand Eyes Archaeological Site Stewardship Program is an outreach program that trains volunteers to help federal and state agencies with monitoring and protecting archaeological sites in the Tennessee Valley.

Through a pandemic, TVA public land has saved our sanity. On Earth Day, it gives us a chance to make sure we are taking the best care possible of the place we call home — one volunteer at a time.
TVA trails crisscross almost 180 miles of public land — there for you to hike. There are trails available for people of all levels of difficulty to enjoy. They’re fun to explore and great for exercise.
Here's how to take sensible precautions to ensure your own safety when you're on the trails, and tips for hiking lightly to leave a light footprint out in nature.
