The National Forest Service is reminding visitors to Cherokee National Forest that there’s more than trails available for outdoor activities.


A presentation on the Cherokee National Forest website calls the area “The Land of Many Uses.”


It particularly encourages those looking to get outside to think about snorkeling in the many creeks in the forest.


According to the NFS, any individuals and non-commercial groups may go to any stream to snorkel. Groups can also contact the National Forest Service about guides and lifeguards for snorkeling trips.


The National Forest Service said it is typical to see 15 to 20 different species of fish in a section of creeks on any given day.
