Five miles east southeast of Livingston is the 1,642-acre Alpine Mountain Wildlife Management Area, a public hunting reservation managed by the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency. The WMA encompasses all sides of 1,890’ Alpine Mountain, located just to the west of the West Fork of the Obey River. Access to the heavily wooded area is from the very rough unpaved Mountain Road running south from Tennessee Highway 52 in the village of Alpine; the marked entrance to the road is across from the Post Office. A high-clearance four-wheel drive vehicle is highly recommended, and the road should be avoided in wet conditions.
Alpine Mountain WMA offers big and small game hunting and trapping. Open season is the same as statewide regulations. Dog training is permitted from September 1 to March 1.
For more information, including open and closed season dates, refer to the annual TWRA Hunting guide (also available on the TWRA website) or contact the TWRA Region III office at 931 484-9571.
