Doe Mountain Recreation Area is slated to open in April 2013 according to Johnson County, TN Mayor Larry Potter who I just spoke with on the phone. Doe Mountain is an 8,600 acre property that has been acquired by the state of TN and will be managed by Johnson County for outdoor recreation. OHV access, hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding and more will be offered on the mountain. The Doe Mountain Recreation Board Of Authority has been created and a charter, bylaws, officers, logo, seal, website all approved. Mapping of the mountain is being done now in preparation for a spring 2013 opening. The terrain is similar to the Callalantee OHV property that used to be an OHV park outside of Mountain City, TN. A visitor center similar to the Black Mountain OHV park in Evarts, KY is planned and permits will be on a daily or yearly basis. At least two access points are planned with the main visitor center being off of Highway 67 (Doe Valley Rd) and a secondary entrance off of Highway 167.
