The Maxwell D. Ramsey Shoreline Trail is a new trail around the grounds of the Sequoyah Birthplace Museum. The trail is 1.5 miles long and includes a 150 foot boardwalk through the marshy areas. The newly built trail has several benches along the path to stop and rest or take in the beauty of the Museum's property on the Great Island along the Little Tennessee River. The trail was built with the support of funds from the Cherokee Preservation Foundationand the East Tennessee Foundation along with our many volunteers and Ed and Arlene Decker's Break-a-Way alternative break program. We will be continuing enhancing the trail with the eradication of invasive plants and reintroducing of native plants to the museum's property with a grant from the Revitalization of Traditional Cherokee Artisan Resources and the Cherokee Preservation Foundation, and the help of the Overhill Gardens, Boy Scout Troops 777 along with our many volunteers. COME VISIT US AND "HIKE THE MAX". WE ARE LOOKING FOWARD TO SEEING YOU!
