Total trip from the very beginning is 19 miles. Since it was a railroad at one time, any climb is super gradual, so it’s easy! For walking, we park in Elizabethton at the baseball park and walk about 2 or 3 miles up and back. Mostly shade so it’s great.

Rude, unfriendly people. Very little parking. Great views of someone's backyard. Can't make this up.

This is a nice walking/biking trail. Gently slopes as it follows old RR bed. Nice and wide. Nice shaded areas and some open areas. Beautiful scenery, sitting benches along the way. Good parking at either end.

We started at the trailhead in Johnson City and took the trail almost 6 miles, ending in Elizabethton near Sycamore Shoals. The path is clear and has lovely historic markers along the way. Plenty of benches are available as are mile markers about every 0.2 miles. The only issues are access to restrooms/porta potties are limited on the trail. Lighting is also an issue if you are planning to go in the evening. The trail currently spans 9.6 miles. I would love to see this finished at 10 miles as the course would make an excellent 10 miler run course.…
