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.

Nice hike on old railbed. This trail offers views of the gorge, railway tunnels, wildflowers, the sound of gushing Doe River along the way. Well kept by owners.

Probably one of the best views you will ever see with such easy access and limited amount of people. Forms aren't a big deal. The trail just shows a different view of the world.

Really enjoyed hiking with friends here. We were blown away with the views: Gorge, river, railroad, all under snow was truly awesome. We will be back soon. Ang out.

Perfect hiking weather. Great company. Trail had snowy patches but overall clear.

Nice trail. Be sure to wear good shoes since the railroad gravel can be a little rough on your feet. There are some amazing views of the river below, but not too many easy paths to get to it.

Good walk, great views, safe for kids

My husband and I have taken the kids out as well as going just for the exercise. I have always felt safe and never had any issues.

This trail is a pedestrian crossing and isn’t dangerous at all.

We did about about 10 miles of it from Zenith trailhead about 5 miles each way. Even though it had been days since it rained it had been a wet summer so there were muddy spots but the soil is not clay so it wasn't slick. An easy ride. And even though it was an August day quite cool because it was along the water way.

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.

Terrible. Don't do this bridge. Very loud, dangerous and absolutely no markings or instructions. It is a bridge crossing and should not even be on this app as a trail.

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.

Closed to the public during the summer. Very disappointing after driving to get here

At nearly a mile in length, Big River Crossing is the longest public pedestrian bridge across the Mississippi.
Big River Crossing is also the country’s longest active rail/bicycle/pedestrian bridge. It serves as the connection point of Main Street to Main Street, a 10-mile multi-modal corridor that also features the Delta Regional River Park and Big River Trail, creating ties to attractions between Memphis, TN and West Memphis, AR.

The trail is a little odd. It kinda starts at the end of the Riverwalk but isn't clearly marked. Also you have to cross multiple streets to stay on the path. With that said, myself, my MIL, and our young children had a great time and I will be walking it again. We walked from the beginning of the Riverwalk to the end of the Upland trail and back with a double stroller. The whole trail is paved.

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

Very short trail, goes across some old railroad trussells, starts at the end of Clarksville Riverwalk

Loved it! tunnels, railroad tracks, creeks, bridges, interesting objects. Lots of variety on this trail :-)

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.
