Forest City Trail

The Forest City trail is a 0.3 mile loop paved trail and was the first all-accessible trail that TVA built. There are several opportunities for fishing along the banks. Other opportunities include viewing of various wildflowers in the spring and viewing of wildlife, such as deer, turkey, and songbirds, in the fall. There is access to a swimming beach that is adjacent to the trail. Walkers may find it a little bit cooler along this trail than out by the lake.

Amenities: Parking, restrooms
