"Growing up exploring and appreciating the outdoors, nature became an important part of my life. From rock climbing, to trail running, to fly fishing, I have always found nature to be captivating. Working at Ridge allows me to utilize my passions about the outdoors and Christian faith by connecting with people everyday on a spiritual and fulfilling level- while also equipping them to explore our beautiful Tennessee mountains!"

The epicenter for outdoor activity in southeast Tennessee is only a short, twenty-minute drive from Lee University. Chilhowee Mountain begins at the base of Parksville Lake, fed by the Ocoee River. Chilhowee Mountain is home to seven-acre McCamy Lake and multiple hiking trails suitable for any type of hiker. Read about trails on Chilhowee Mountain for both beginners and intermediate hikers.
I have been on many trails and spent many a night in the woods. I have used many types of gear and pride myself on always being prepared. I am also a nut for DIY tips and tricks that you can make out of cheap supplies. However, I was humbled the other day when a customer came into our Cleveland store.
