The Wes Davis Greenway follows a portion of abandoned rail line that once ran from Bluff City, TN, to Mendota, VA. The greenway crosses Beaver Creek at two points. This linear park features the partially restored Pullman "Bristol" car, which was acquired by the city of Bristol, and a Southern caboose donated by Norfolk Southern.
The trailhead sign is a laser-cut silhouette of an EMD F7 locomotive in the colors of "The Tennessean"a locomotive that once connected the Southern Railway and the Norfolk & Western. It offered rail service from Memphis to Washington, D.C.
There are plans to link the rail-trail with another that runs from the TN/VA border in Bristol, VA, to Mendota, VA.
Parking and Trail Access
Parking is available at the Bristol Municipal Center on the north side of Anderson Street across from trailhead.
