SYLACAUGA, Ala. – The Sylacauga Chamber of Commerce has partnered with the Coosa County Chamber of Commerce to promote tourism at Flagg Mountain in Weogufka at its Tails from the Trails event.

Flagg Mountain, first constructed in the 1930s as an Alabama Sate Park, has the potential to be a gathering place for those who love to spend weekends outdoors and enjoying nature. Improvements and updates are taking place in the area. The Alabama Hiking Trail Society is partnering with the Alabama Forestry Commission to restore host cabins which includes replacing broken windows and removing lead paint. Landscaping and other projects are also a part of the updates.

The renovation’s purpose is to attract more people to the hiking and camping site and in preparation of the hope’s of many that Flagg Mountain will one day become part of the Appalachian Trail.

At the event held at the Sylacauga Chamber, Flagg Mountain caretaker Nomad Nimblewell will speak on the importance of Flagg Mountain, its history, and his journeys on the Pacific Crest Trail, the Continental Divide Trail, and the Appalachian Trail.

“This will be a time to bring awareness to resources that Sylacauga and the surrounding areas have to offer with the Pinhoti hiking trail and Flagg Mountain,” said Sylacauga Chamber interim executive director Laura Strickland. “We are looking forward to a great night of learning and refreshments.”

Tails from the Trails will be held Monday, May 22 at at 7 p.m. Donations for Flagg Mountain will be accepted. You can also donate to the Flagg Mountain GoFundMe page here.
