The Tennessee Central Heritage Rail Trail, a rails-with-trail project, will eventually run 19 miles alongside refurbished railroad tracks from Cookeville to Monterey. Several railroad crossings must first be upgraded along the proposed route in order to meet safety standards. Currently, a short 0.5 mile section is open in Monterey.
Looking forward to it! My great-grandfather worked for the TCRY for 55 years. It would be a privileged to bike this trail! What is the status of this project?
