Fiery Gizzard’s Denny Cove is now officially open to the public as South Cumberland State Park’s newest addition.

Representatives of several conservation organizations have worked hard over the past six years to protect Denny Cove, and they joined park rangers and other interested parties March 17 for an on-site dedication ceremony. Following remarks from Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development Deputy Commissioner for Parks and Conservation Brock Hill, Marion County Mayor David Jackson, South Cumberland State Park Manager George Shinn and several others, a ribbon cutting and climbing rope carabiner unclipping took place.
