The trail may be scenic on the Johnson City side but not so in Elizabethton. All of the way through town you walk beside industrial/manufacturing plants and their storage yards. It is nice and flat for riding a bicycle but that is all it has...More

The trail is nice and well maintained. Be aware of your surroundings. There has been an attempted child abduction and also some weirdo has been stringing fishing line across the trail to cause you to fall or wreck your bike. Some of the line actually...More

This is a beautiful relaxing trail that starts in Johnson City and goes through a portion of Elizabethton. People of all ages and various levels of athletic ability are able to enjoy the Tweetsie Trail.

Well done bike trail from Johnson City to Elizabethton which is about 10 miles. Easier to start in Elizabethon as there are lots of hills and grades to JC.

Very great experience and beautiful scenery!! Great fresh air for the adults and the children. This is where I will go for family fun and outings. Not too crowded and very peaceful.

We love the Tweetsie, we come pretty often and the trail is always well maintained. We like to start in Elizabethton and the cruise back from Johnson city. It’s much closer than the Creeper for us, yet very similar in the forested areas. We love...More

We enjoyed our walk but would have felt safer had we seen a police officer patrolling the trail. The addition of city supervised bathrooms outside the new bike rental place is a great idea!

This trail has crushed gravel and is pretty flat, so it's great for running, biking, and walking your dog. My only complaints are the lack of bathrooms, water fountains, and trashcans. I think this could be a really great trail if these things were added.

I wasn't able to enjoy this trail as long as I had wanted to because I got there about an hour before they closed. But the short while I was there, I was really impressed. The walk is 6.8 miles I think, and from the...More

Not that I know of. There is a BBQ restaurant near Elizabethton which may suffice.

I am assuming you are talking about Arizona State Route 327. I do not know - you have posted this on a site about The Tweetsie Trail in East Tennessee

The Carnegie at ETSU would be the closest.
