Warriors Path Bike Trails – Trip Report

Tim Schaefer reporting
Event Date: November 4th, 2013
Yet another beautiful fall day for a hike. This one was a bit colder than the previous week’s hike, but still extremely pleasant. Since we had small children, we kept the distance down and did just Boneyard. The trail map said 1.9, our wiki says 2.44. I’m inclined to believe our measurement, as it took us right at two hours including the short distance to and from the loop. For those who have never considered hiking these trails because of the mention of “Bike Trails,” these are some of the nicest trails that I’ve been on in Kingsport, with great views of the park and river. All we had to do was dodge out of the way of two bicyclists for our entire hike. Not bad for such a nice hike so close to home. Joining me was my family, Paula Cahill, and family friend Amanda.

Doe River Gorge – Trip Report

Event Date: October 27th
It was a beautiful fall day for a hike along the tracks to the old train bridge. For those who haven’t ventured out here yet, it’s an extremely nice hike with great views along a narrow gage train track (i.e. flat and even grade). As always, check out our wiki for Doe River Gorge for details on the trail. Joining me was my family, Jaime and Paul Aiello, and Zhufang Liu and Jingua Yuan and their children.
