TRAIL INFO. - This trail is a very pleasant walk along the Little Tennessee River in Franklin, NC. It is mostly asphalt with very nice features along the way. Benches, picnic tables, parks, great signage, very nice bridges that take you back and forth across the river. The terrain is mostly flat. From end to end it is 4 miles. We hiked the entire length from south to north and back for an 8.3 mile total including the access trail at the Macon County Public Library.
Directions: From the south in GA take highway 441 to Franklin, NC. Turn to the right just before the Highway 64 intersection onto Siler Rd. Continue along Siler and follow the signs to the Public Library. You will then walk down a gravel road to the Greenway Trail access.
Another great day for a hike! Partly cloudy and cool. Temperatures in the low to upper 40's F. Total distance - 8 mi.
