We have sold 92 benches. For people that send money for benches in the future we will contact them and see if they can do trail paving and a brick. What is the Tweetsie Trail? The Tweetsie Trail is a proposed bicycle & pedestrian trail utilizing the abandoned ET&WNC rail line. The trail will begin at Alabama St. in Johnson City, and continue roughly 6 miles to Sycamore Shoals in Elizabethton. When will the trail be open to the public? We are excited to announce that we are on track to open the trail to the public by Labor Day 2014! Through the hard work of many volunteers, and the generous donations of area businesses and individuals, the Tweetsie Trail will provide an excellent opportunity to run, bike or walk between Johnson City and Elizabethton, enjoying the scenery along the way! Who is paying for the Tweetsie Trail? One of the most exciting things about the Tweetsie Trail is that we are building it with no federal or state funds! The trail will be built with corporate donations and through the support of the very people who will use it. Opportunities to support the trail include purchasing a bench, buying a brick, sponsoring a bridge, or through your tax-deductible donations. 100% of your donations will go directly to the trail!
