As of September 2015, the Tweetsie Trail in eastern Tennessee is now completed. The rail-trail follows the former ET&WNC (“Tweetsie”) Railroad right-of-way for 9.5 miles. It begins at Alabama Street in Johnson City and continues east through Sycamore Shoals State Park in Elizabethton and the city's downtown. It ends on Stateline Road near the Betsytowne Shopping Center.
The trail has a compacted stone surface, a relatively flat grade, and crosses seven bridges. Along the way, travelers can rest and enjoy its beautiful, natural surroundings on several benches.
Parking is available in Johnson City at the Memorial Park Community Center, Cardinal Park, and the Municipal and Safety Building (City Hall).
In Elizabethton, parking is available at Elizabethton High School.
