trail locations for Johnson City, Tennessee

moderately strenuous with some good incline. Pretty views throughout but almost always looking through a lot of brush. Bring lunch for the picnic table at the top. :)

Beautiful hike! 360 degree views from the top. If you want to propose to your girlfriend this is where you should do it. I should know -12/10/16 he proposed next to the picnic table. ☺️

Great place to hike, especially in the fall. Crazy to think it's just 5-10 minutes from downtown Johnson City!

Beautiful views on the "tip top" trail!

I give this 4 stars because I guess I was expecting some big scenery lol it was a good challenging trail! Had one stop with a picnic table and then another at the top! So was very convenient! The whole way up it is a lot of beautiful scenes!

took my son when he was 5...awesome hike....

Great if you're looking for a challenge. Be prepared to go uphill!

Great bike trail

Nice views, easy uphill climb. Good to do, when time is a factor

Great trail. Will definitely do again. A couple things though- according to my GPS it was 2.1 miles to get to the top of tip top trail from Cascade making it a 4.2 mile round trip. Also, if you are one that does not like plants touching your legs i would definitely recommend wearing breathable pants, the trail was really overgrown with vegetation. The trail was very well marked- marked with numerous white marks to keep you on the right trail. Great mountain views at the top with shade and a picnic table to enjoy a snack :)

This is one of my favorite hikes, it's just an easy, and fun little hike for when you need some outdoor time.

This was a nice Rails to trail well kept only thing i did not like was all the road crossing toward the end.

The convenient location and well maintained trail make this the best place for a quick hike or jog in Johnson City.
