Final view is awesome! The trail head isn't labeled very well, but there are labels throughout the trail.

Great hiking! Lots of uphill and downhill! At tip top point it was great but lots of flies and bugs. The white marker is to follow the trail. It took about 3 hours to do.

Our first visit to this trail we encountered a black bear and her cubs just 30' away, the bear was not aggressive, we just kept walking. Hike has great views of Johnson City. There is also a great overlook down from the towers just off the service road.

I did almost all of my marathon training on this "trail". It is a very well maintained gravel path but for the most part you're behind houses, crossing roads, and once you hit about 4.5 miles you're crossing roads more and not much shade. From about mile 6- 7.5 you're right on the edge of a 4 lane road through Elizathbethton where all the food and stores are. Highly recommend for walking, running, biking but not so much if you are wanting to be in nature and solitude.
