EVENT SYNOPSIS A 3-day festival of guided hikes on over 15 of the South Cumberland's most scenic trails, with workshops on garden design and native plants, Art for the Park, Wine & Wildflowers, a native plant sale and free children's events [including ropes course, hayrides, wildlife, and a live Davy Crockett show]. This unique event, held on the historic Monteagle Sunday School Assembly grounds, is a fundraiser for the Friends of South Cumberland – one of the leading land preservation groups in the state. A highlight of this year's festival will be performances by Joe Wiegand, the world's premiere Theodore Roosevelt reprisor, starring at the Teddy Bear Picnic for children and presenting an evening program: "A Salute to Conservation and State Parks." April is peak wildflower season on the Cumberland Plateau, and the Monteagle Assembly grounds, with its charming cottages, creeks and gardens is an ideal spot for the festival. Trails & Trilliums – a "five star date" on the spring calendars of hikers, gardeners, wildflower enthusiasts, and art lovers – is truly a blooming success. Trails & Trilliums has something for everyone who loves the great outdoors!
