Urban Wilderness: Still Hot

Despite those who thought running a highway through wooded land in South Knoxville was still a great idea, the recently conceived Urban Wilderness is still getting media attention. In Blue Ridge Outdoors magazine's new "Blue Ridge Outdoors Ultimate 100" list, travel editor Jess Daddio compiled "100 activities that highlight the best of the Blue Ridge." And Knoxville's UW made the cut at number 97, sharing the slot with Roanoke and Charlottesville for having "great examples of trail getaways located right in town."
