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 & Be Blessed!! Beth ( :
