The Tweetsie Trail is a rails-to-trails project traversing form ET&WNC (Tweetsie) railroad right-of-way between Johnson City and Elizabethton. The trail provides opportunities for walking, hiking, running, and biking 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. The trail was built without any federal or state funding.
