Sugarloaf Mountain Park

Following a hike at Benton Falls, I later found Ocoee Dam No. 2 – a hydroelectric dam along the Ocoee River, in Polk County, Tennessee, built between 1912-1913.

At the adjacent Sugarloaf Mountain Park, I learned that materials to construct this rock-filled crib-type dam had been quarried from a hillside across the river, with structural remnants of a railway bridge still intact.

Scenic Drive To Norris Dam

I recently enjoyed a scenic drive to Norris Dam, located along the Clinton River between Anderson & Campbell counties, Tennessee.

The hydro-electric dam opened on March 4, 1936, after nearly 2.5 years of construction. It stands 265-feet tall by 1860-feet wide, and has a maximum generating capacity of 126 megawatts.
