In 2013 the City of Johnson City completed its acquisition of a 10-mile stretch of the former ET&WNC Railroad from Johnson City through Elizabethton. The first 7-mile segment celebrated its grand opening Labor Day weekend 2014. The final 3 miles have been completed and celebrating with a grand opening Labor Day weekend 2015.Using our international travel planner, Johnson City attractions like Tweetsie Trail can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
The recreational trail along the former railroad corridor provides an opportunity for walking, hiking, running, biking, etc. on a relatively flat grade in a natural setting. The trail connects Johnson City and Elizabethton communities. The trail takes its name from the locomotives of our railroading past whose high-pitched whistles led local residents to nickname them "Tweetsie."
To schedule an event on the Tweetsie Trail, please contact Johnson City Parks & Recreation by email firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone 423-283-5815.

Tweetsie Trail reviews
We rode the Tweetsie Trail from Elizabethton to Johnson City (and back again.). There were few scenic areas along the trail, with more of it along the commercial road. more »
Great trail! I love visiting this trail every chance I can. It has great views and it’s an extremely easy trek. I’d recommend it to anyone! more »
