The Erwin Linear Trail runs parallel to Interstate 26, along the North Indian Creek and Nolichucky waterways in the town. The greenway was designed by Tysinger, Hampton & Partners to help protect and enhance the environment and provide recreation to the community.
The Linear Trail includes wooded areas, natural ponds, wetlands and mountain views. Trails wander around and through the ponds for recreation and fishing. It also provides instructional wetlands areas for local shcool programs. Throughout the year on the Linear Trail you can find hikers, dog walkers, bicyclers, joggers, adults, children and families from the entire region.
In recent years, the Erwin Kiwanis Club has built an age-appropriate and special needs play and learning park along the trail. Other amenities on the Linear Trail including night lighting, restrooms, benches and docks for fishing – all in a family-friendly area.
