Tweetsie Trail

What is now the ten-mile Tweetsie Trail was once part of the ET&WNC Railroad which spanned thirty-four track miles from Johnson City, TN to Cranberry, NC. The trail gets its distinct name, Tweetsie, from the sound that was made by the locomotives’ whistles. Now, you can walk, bike, or run this multi-use path from Johnson City to the outskirts of downtown Elizabethton.
