Once again the local Polk County lawyer Denny Mobbs is trying desperately to desecrate the Cherokee National Forest and Little Frog Mountain Wilderness Preserve. Kimsey Mountain Road is also State Forest Road 68 and is owned and maintained by the National Forest Service. Why anyone would want to turn a beautiful one lane gravel National Forest access road into a raging four lane type interstate highway with all the associated noise, pollution, and overall destructive nature it will bring to a pristine National Forest is beyond my comprehension. Those of us who understand why there is a National Forest and who love the Cherokee National Forest wonder, "Where do the roads end so the Forest can begin?" Click on the link below and ask yourself.

Denny Mobbs appears to be an unsavory charater.

When I lived in McCaysville, I would often make the drive over the Kimsey mountain road. It was breathtaking, especailly after a spring rain or during the splendor of the fall. It was really riding through the forest.

Why is there a necessity now to turn it into a highway? Has that area grown that much? That's a shame.

Has anyone ever saw the concrete structures and dam that is in Kimsey Mountain. I was jeep riding through the mountain and discovered a jeep trail that ran out to this sturcture. It's almost 50 feet tall, it has 4 pillars on each side and the ceiling has 2 holes in the roof that appears to be like a skylight. It made me wonder and I can't find any information on it. Thanks.

It looks like the old Kimsey Mountain Rd is off the table as a route for corridor k according to the local polk county newspaper. Denny Mobbs must
be one unhappy camper.

Though I don't have the paperwork to back this up; I'm of the understanding that Kimsey MTN has been currently rejected as an alternative. The entire Corridor K project should be rejected if you ask me. When is a four lane highway with rising gas prices, unrelenting commercialism, desecration of wildlife reserves(like people are the only inhabitants of the planet), more pollution, more crime more important? Well, it is I suppose when we are heading quite rapidly towards a modern feudal system where the rights of the many are tossed aside for the priviledges of he few.

It sounds to me that you found the defunct railroad station known as "McFarland". I know of the dam and tall structure there, but I can't tell you of the history of the place, or even what that high structure once was.

They better leave my Kimsey Mountain Highway alone. That's where I put lead into Bear Heads.
