Take KAT to the Dogwood Trails

Posted: 03/26/2014
March 26, 2014 - Spring has finally arrived in East Tennessee, and the Dogwood Trails will soon be bursting with colorful flowers and trees. The Dogwood Trails will officially be "open" on April 9. This year's featured trail is Sequoyah Hills, which celebrates its 60th year as a Dogwood Trail!
