Rails, trails, rocks, rivers, and some history lessons. That's just the short list of things that make Doe River Gorge great.

Pets apparently are not actually allowed abd you must submit a form to hike to the christian ministries that owns the land.

The out and back trail follows 2.5 miles of the old narrow gauge Tweetsie rail line that used to run over the mountains between Johnson City, TN and Cranberry, NC. The trailhead is located at a Christian campground...visitors are welcome during the fall, winter and spring when the camp is not being used. There are wonderful views of the gorge for most of its length. It also passes through two old railroad tunnels. The trail has both mountain beauty and history.
