Rails with Trails

It's hard to imagine a prettier place for a rail-trail. The emerging 4-mile Tennessee Central Heritage Rail Trail winds across the high plains of central Tennessee between Cookeville and Algood. Excitement is building for the new recreational amenity, which will be unique to these communities in a region that already counts itself lucky with gorges, waterfalls, caves, rocky bluffs and the Cumberland Mountains above it all. The trail opened in September of 2016.
