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.

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.

Tallulah Falls Rail-Trail

Short and Sweet

May, 2016 by kmwatkins

Nice little peaceful bike trail. A little short, which prevented a 4th or 5th star. Cool suspension bridge to cross which provides good views of the river.

Great trail for the whole family, but...

May, 2016 by jeffreyeinkorn

Great trail for the whole family, but if your riding a trike or single speed bike, I suggest sticking to the north end of the trail. Its a bit more level.

Eureka Trail February

March, 2016 by rtboughner

We biked this trail before the road graders smoothed the surface. It is gravel and has not compacted in some areas. Wide tires are best, but my narrow tires managed. The trail construction currently ends before reaching Englewood. This is going to be a very nice local trail for walking or biking, especially in the evening after work. Rural and quiet and level.

Tallulah Falls Rail-Trail

Tallulah Falls Railroad

October, 2015 by dixie eagle

The man the pioneer the hero who brought this short line to Tallulah Falls was Colonel Rufus Lafayette Moss Sr. Now any of you who wish to Google him will find some interesting reading about him. He was the Warren Buffet of his time in the 19th century. He was a wealthy Millionaire. He lived in Athens Georgia. He owned two cotton mills.The Princeton,and White Hall mills. Two Banks.The Athens Manufacturing Company. The Moss Company. Pioneer paper company.
Athens steam engine company. Athens Gas light company. In 1870 he and his partners were granted by the State of Georgia Legislature rights to build a short line railroad north from Athens to what is today Commerce Ga.Back then was Harmony Grove.The terminus was Lula Georgia. At the time Moss needed the railroad to move his cotton to the main Georgia Southern Railroad running from New York to New orleans La. This made him think about the future.He thought if he could continue the line north to connect with the Asheville &Knoxville lines he could run cotton out west to the new states and yet to be states. But it never made it past Franklin North Carolina.
While all this was happening Colonel Rufus Lafayette Moss Sr. bought Tallulah Gorge.He built his second home a summer home in town. It's here still today. Built in 1879 by Moss is the oldest man made structure in town . oldest and largest house. oldest house in the town.the 4th oldest house in Rabun County via the Rabun County Historical Society and courthouse records. He built a hotel across the street from the railroad depot that he built and owned.the hotel was named the Cliff House. Because he owned the gorge he thought the train would bring visitors which it did. And after he sold part of his gorge to Georgia power company in 1909. He was responsible for the first electric in our state. The second part of the gorge was sold by his son Rufus Lafayette Moss Jr. (Rufus Sr. Died in 1912.) to the state of Georgia for the very park all of you enjoy today and the very trail you walk on was once where Colonel Rufus Lafayette Moss Sr.train carried people and freight as far north to Franklin North Carolina. Rufus Lafayette Moss Sr brought the train to town in 1882.
Because no one could figure out how to put a trestle across such a deep gorge.It took a while to get to clayton Georgia from Tallulah Falls.
But Moss finally built a 1200 foot trestle to span the town to and over the gorge. Colonel Rufus Lafayette Moss Sr also with 5 other business men went to the state of Georgia legislature and on October 7th 1885 the state legislature apionted Colonel Rufus Lafayette Moss, Thomas Abraham Robinson,JM Cartledge,William D Young, and William Berry Commissioner's to Incorporate the town of Tallulah Falls. I hope you all enjoyed the history lesson. And these are the facts pulled from the state of Georgia Archives and the UGA Archives. The reason I wrote this is to get the real truth out about one great man the the state of Georgia will not recognize as the pioneer who brought the first tourism into the northeastern part of our state and all people interested in the rails to trails should know the history that they walk on. Enjoy your walk.

Cleveland/Bradley County Greenway

Some serious problems

July, 2015 by thesethings15

I've been walking, running and cycling on this trail since its creation, and while it is better than nothing, I find that the Greenway has some definite issues compared with other similar town Greenway Trails withiin TN and other states I've lived in.

With its proximity to Mouse Creek, and various low points going under roads, it is very prone to flooding at multiple points. Can't tell you how many times I have had to leave the trail to "portage" via roadway or other means. And when the water subsides, it leaves piles of trash, debris and a muddy mess.

There is also very little adherence to guidelines by cyclist vs. pedestrians vs. kids on scooters, the picking up after dogs, loose dogs and other problems. I've seen accidents happen on more than one occasion due to collisions, etc. On weekends and other busy traffic times, I avoid using the trail as it is more of a headache than it's worth. Cyclists not yielding to pedestrians, kids/people not paying attention, dogs lunging at each other....

But one of the biggest and most recent issues for me (personally) is the increase of transients and homeless people making it a hangout at various points. One person (or more) even set up a ramshackle shelter and encampment off the trail near one of the marshes - the area behind Lowe's. I've heard parents complaining about some of the people hanging out near the playground and loitering in the pavillion. I've seen guys who seem to be living out of shopping carts and plastic trash bags, set up "camp" for the day directly along the side of the path. While some of their activity is not necessarily illegal, some of their behavior and possible instability (from whatever source) is troubling. At least one man, talking to himself, appeared drunk or on drugs or mentally unstable - or all of the above. He may have the right to be there, but it does not make it an appealing place, or feel like a safe place, for me to walk/run/cycle.

As a single woman, it makes me increasingly uneasy to be on parts of the trail that are not exposed to roadways and public view, or are within the more secluded areas like Tinsley Park. I think its only a matter of time before some kind of assault occurs, especially given the increase in vandalism and crime that has been documented with fixtures on the Greenway, and at businesses/property along the Greenway.

Little Tennessee River Greenway (Franklin)

Kids loved it

June, 2015 by bhamon

We road the whole the entire path. And my kids loved it. Only a couple large hills that the kids needed to walk up, other then that it was perfect for our first outing. The path was well maintained and ez enough for an 8 year old to ride and enjoy. We love following the river and crossing over it several times. Fun,easy and cheap.
