The NEXT Scenic Circle Publication coming Fall 2014!

Heritage Partners is now working on the next, and ultimate, Scenic Circle publication for release in the Fall.
 With its publication, the Scenic Circle I and II editions will be retired in preference to a full color, comprehensive
guide to our area's beautiful natural attractions - capturing the best of Scenic Circle I and II, as well as
additional attractions.  Way finding can be whatever you like - see one or an entire day trip drive, mapped from
the Cherokee County courthouse.  Published trail guide author Dr. Liz Carter, along with project team volunteers,
are now at work developing the publication's content for printing.  And hey- we'll also be making available
an e-publication version to download if you prefer! 

Heritage Partners says THANK YOU to our next Scenic Circle publication partners to date:
The Cherokee County Tourism Development Authority; the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA); Wells & West;
 Murphy Power Board; The Curiosity Shop Book Store; David Hilton. 


Scenic Circle I and Scenic Circle II Now

With both editions now in their third printing, these popular eco tourism publications provide guided tours to the area's beautiful natural attractions. Authored by volunteer and published trail guide author Dr. Liz Carter,
