A $10,000 grant award will help the Johnson County Trails Association break ground on their ambitious Laurel Creek Trail project in northeastern Tennessee. Our funding will help build a bicycle bridge at the beginning of what will be an 87-mile crushed-stone bike path through spectacular Appalachian countryside.

The Laurel Creek Trail will link to the popular Virginia Creeper Trail, just across the namesake state's border to the north. Together, these two trails will provide touring cyclists and local riders with more than 120 miles of continuous bike paths to explore.
