DEL RIO-Cocke County Officials and US Forest Service Officials are proud to announce the improvements to Rocky Top Road on the Del Rio side, making it easier for everyone to enjoy a trip to Rocky Top.

Through the Secure Rural Schools and Community Self-Determination Act (SRS), Cocke County has worked closely with the US Forest Service on a number of projects that benefit both people and the natural resources in the Cherokee National Forest. One of these projects has been improvements to Rocky Top Road.

"We consider this an opportunity to help make an area we all enjoy and appreciate a better place," said Cocke County Mayor Vaughn Moore. "There aren't many people who haven't heard of Rocky Top, and now we have made it much easier to get there. It is a beautiful area with spectacular views. If you haven't been there, I recommend making a visit there to enjoy the Autumn colors."
