Cherokee Ridge Alpine Trail Association (CRATA)

An All Volunteer Hiking Trail Organization


Founded in 2004 by Jimmy K. Lanier, the Cherokee Ridge Alpine Trail Association (CRATA), has been dedicated to the design, building, and maintenance of quality, well marked foot path only trails around the Lake Martin area.  

Managed by a Board of Directors (see below for current Board members), this 501C-3 organization has developed partnerships with all the major stake-holders in the area in order to insure a long range plan to increase opportunities for wholesome outdoor activities and educate our community on good stewardship of our natural resources.
