EAST LAKESHORE TRAIL REACHES MAJOR MILESTONE

Congratulations are in order for Bob Martin and the trail builders.

Since 2003, in just 8 years, volunteers led by Jerry Barr, Larry Smartt and Bob Martin have completed 20 miles of trail on the east side of Tellico Lake.  This trail building effort reached a major milestone this year with the opening of a bridge, built by TVA, over Sinking Creek.  For the first time all twenty miles of trail are connected. 

“It’s turned out to be a real jewel,” said Bill Waldrop.

And it's a great trail to hike, especially in the winter when there are spectacular views across the lake back to Tellico Village.  If you haven't walked this trail, it's well worth a try.  (Click on 'read more' in the lower right corner to see more about the trail.)

Here’s a picture of the new bridge before the concrete floor was poured:
