Maryville-Alcoa Greenway

Enjoyable ride!

October, 2017 by opstadp

Just ride this trail October 14th. Nicely paved trail all the way and pretty ride with a creek alongside at times and a few ponds and fountain. Some short hills in the Alcoa sections. Easy access from various places. We parked in the parking lot behind the Maryville courthouse and jumped right on the trail there and headed north towards Alcoa. When we came into town, we stopped first at the Maryville Visitor Center and they gave us a map and highlighted the trail and key points for us. This is a good idea because though the trail is great it is not marked in a number of places so easy to get puzzled as to which way to go. We did 18 miles total by going up and back and then a few miles south from the parking lot.

Nantahala Bikeway

Nantahala Bikeway AKA Laurie's Trail

September, 2017 by granola8

This is a short but sweet trail. If your are biking you can continue your ride up Wayah Rd. to the cascades of the upper Nantahala and even further on the Old River Rd. This trail does not start at the Nantahala Outdoor Center as advertised. It starts at Winding Stairs Rd. and ends at the commercial raft put in. This is about six miles west of NOC and just off highway 19/74. During rafting season (March thru October) start at Winding Stairs Rd. parking area just off 19/74, cross 2 bridges and follow the trail along the river. This is part of the Bartram Trail System.

Wilderness Road Trail

LOVELY IN WILDERNESS TRAIL STATE PARK

August, 2017 by sweetcat

Biked this trail from The Wilderness Trail State Park Visitors Center out East about 2 miles to the end then back and explored the reconstructed fort and Martin's Station. We then proceeded West for about 6.2 miles. All of this was well cared for trail. There are buffalo in one section on the trail and you can walk up steps to get close to their fenced field. We were cautioned by the ranger at the Visitors Center that the trail deteriorated once it left the State Park grounds. It certainly did. It ran right along route 58 and was over grown with weeds and a poor base. We turned around before reaching the National Park as riding beside the highway on a shifting base wasn't much fun. There are educational signs along the trail and we enjoyed learning about the history of the trail. The scenery is beautiful and we didn't meet another biker only a few walkers. It was a very nice stop on our way through the area.

Nantahala Bikeway

Nantahala Greenway

August, 2017 by brennan.smith.5623

I really like Greenways.

Eureka Trail

Great bike trail and close to town.

July, 2017 by keithgrubb705

This trail is almost completely shaded so a great ride even on the hottest days. Gravel on the last third of the trail can get a bit large so don't take a road bike unless you like fixing flats. Has just enough grade to keep you pedalling most of the way. If you're on a bike be aware some people on horseback will be on skittish horses.

Nantahala Bikeway

Loved it!

July, 2017 by ani.blair

This quaint ride through the forest is feet away from the Nantaha- yes the same one with rafters screaming down the rapids. Two bridges on one side where the kayaks and rafts pass under starts the trail from the Winding Stair side. I had only two complaints: there was no signage letting you know which place was correct, and if you have a road bike, beware of about 8- places where the roots have grown up into the pavement. Other than that, it was terrific- worth the drive over.

Eureka Trail

SURFACE

May, 2017 by rcheeze

I noticed that about 10 weeks ago (05-10-2017) some type of grader was run along the surface. It dislodged all of the larger rocks that had been tamped down into the bed of the track. It is now very rough and unpleasant to ride. Leave it alone!!!

Eureka Trail

Loose unaccompanied Dogs are a nuisance and danger to people and pets

October, 2016 by whbump

During frequent trail walks I've encountered agressive Dogs on this trail around the intersection of the Route 439 (Fairview Rd) intersection with the trail. Dogs chase bicycles and other "leashed" animals. The dogs always appear to be in the same location so I suspect they belong to residents who live nearby. If this situation continues to go unchecked I suspect trail users will begin to avoid the trail or begin protect themselves and their pets.

Trail Managers need to resolve this problem as quickly as possible to avoid a potential incident that is just waiting to happen.

Loose loose gravel

September, 2016 by dbosch777

Road this today and unfortunately didn't make it past the part near the road that is way to Streep with the gravel. Ended up on my side with a slit in my shin and had to head back to the road and back to the car. Beautiful day but don't recommend this on a bike.

Eureka Trail

Eureka Trail is GREAT

September, 2016 by ksimmons63

The Eureka Trail is lovely. I have walked and biked the entire trail which is mostly shaded. Great for all ages of walkers and riders (bikers and horseback!). I'm looking forward to the next phase of the trail being completed!

Eureka Trail

Eureka!

May, 2016 by rgilbert_tl

On May 10, 2016 a friend and I hiked this beautiful relatively flat trail starting at its current Englewood trail head off of Highway 39 and continuing for its full length to the transformed lumber yard in Athens that now serves as the Athens trail head. Our hike took less than 2 hours. The trail is breathtakingly verdant as it cuts through majestic woodlands and rolling farmlands, and crosses over a clear creek. The base is hard packed, and is a perfect wide trail for mountain bikers and hikers of all ages. This new Rails to Trails project is a huge quality of life gem for the Englewood & Athens communities and will surely become a go to destination for outdoor lovers in the region and beyond.
