This 50-Mile Train Ride Is The Most Relaxing Way To Enjoy Tennessee Scenery

Have you ever been on a train ride? Nowadays the train seems to be going the way of the streetcar, neat when you can ride one but nothing more than a fun experience. It’s hard to find a train, first off, but here in the south our deep history with the railroad offers up all sorts of local options. Our favorite? Well, that’s hard to choose…but come autumn time, you can’t beat a ride through the Hiwassee Loop.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

Pretty incredible, wouldn’t you say? If you’re looking for a bit more fun in the great outdoors, this autumnal hike is pretty incredible.
