This was a great bike ride. Easy good trail. Well maintained. I had looked it up online and thought it was 8.8 one way but that is actually the total ride in and out. I was told they are working on it to make it longer. I would recommend a mt bike on this trail.

A rails to trails project that is a simple walk/hike for all ages. Wide, gravel path will connect Englewood and Athens in the near future. The trail is about half way completed at this point.

Very good for a family Trail. I pull a 4 year old on a co-pilot bike and had no problem. Very easy, very smooth. Great trail for beginners.

Eureka Trail is a Rails to Trail in Athens, TN. It is an easy multiuse trail. You will see folks walking, biking, running, and occasionally on horseback. There is ample parking at the trailhead; there are plans to extend the trail all the way from Athens to Englewood. It winds between fields and forest; it crosses two county roads; there is a short .6 loop on the trailhead end as well. There is presently some storm damage in the woods from a tornado in Nov/2016, but it does not affect the trail itself. A good walk, run, ride location close to town.
