The Tweetsie Trail, TN

The Tweetsie Trail is a rails-to-trails project traversing former ET&WNC railroad right-of-way between Johnson City and Elizabethton.  Because of the unique sound of the locomotive whistle, the railroad and its trains became unofficially yet affectionately known as the “tweetsie.” The trail provides opportunities for walking, hiking, running, biking, etc. on a relatively flat grade in a beautiful, natural setting. When complete, the 10-mile trail will be the longest rails-to-trails project in Tennessee! (For more info. Please see this website: http://www.tweetsietrail.com/)
These are views from our bike ride while we were visiting the David Crockett State Park, Tn. Right now this trail is not complete, it sure was fun for us and our trailer buddies to grab our bikes and enjoy the sunny fun day!! We got to take a few pics and just enjoy our time away. Thank you for stopping by today. Hope you did enjoy your visit. Thank you for your comments and friendship. ENJOY YOUR DAY!! Be Well …

About The Park: David Crockett was a pioneer, soldier, politician and industrialist. He was born near the little town of Limestone in northeast Tennessee in 1786. In 1817, he moved to Lawrence County and served as a justice of the peace, a colonel of the militia and as a state representative. Along the banks of Shoal Creek, in what is now his namesake park, he established a diversified industry consisting of a powdermill, a gristmill and a distillery. All three operations were washed away in a flood in September 1821. Financial difficulties from this loss caused Crockett to move to West Tennessee where he was elected to Congress. While in Washington, he fought for his people’s right to keep land they had settled on in the new frontier of West Tennessee. Crockett died at the Alamo Mission in March of 1836 while aiding the Texans in their fight for independence from Mexico. The 1,319-acre…

STORY TIME:
You know how they will show folks riding on the beach ...maybe it has to do with what kind of tires you have? I don't know ...but riding on the sand is not easy ...so many factors have to work together to make it a great experience ... not to soft of sand? not to hard? Like the Goldilocks of sand??! It will always get stick your wheels (tires) and a real mess to clean up? You don't wanna miss up your bike? gears? pairs, etc!!??! Just be safe ...that is all I am saying. It can and is a real workout!!
