The former K-25 site in west Oak Ridge has been converted into a Heritage Center as part of the Manhattan Project National Park. The Park features two greenway trails along with some restored natural areas. We will meet early at the Powerhouse trail and look for waterfowl and late summer wildflowers. We will then relocate with a stop to visit a slave cemetery, then make our way over to the Heritage Trail along the shore of Poplar Creek amongst the sites of the former K-25 building and end up back at the Heritage Center Museum opened just this year. Those interested in additional hiking can walk by a historical Baptist Church to the top of McKinney Ridge and back. We will walk about 4 miles total. Rated easy. Meet at the K-25 Overlook parking lot off Rt 58 west of Oak Ridge at 9:00 am.

Pre-registration is required.
