Over a mile of this trail is paved, which makes it great for strollers and wheelchairs. The rest of the trail is relatively flat and surfaced with packed, crushed gravel; it makes a good off-road trail for joggers and walkers. This trail is on the Cherokee Dam Reservation, which is located about five miles north of Jefferson City, Tennessee, on Hwy. 92
