East Lakeshore TrailMultiple trailhead locations
This trail provides a recreational and educational hiking trail along a portion of the east shoreline of Tellico Lake. The trail has been recognized by the Department of the Interior as a National Recreation Trail. This trail is not federally-funded and is therefore open at all times. The trail system was built and is maintained by an all-volunteer organization, WATeR – Watershed Association of the Tellico Reservoir, in cooperation with TVA. The over 30-mile long trail consists of nine segments available for public use. Access to the trail is provided at five trailheads with vehicle parking for 15 to 20 vehicles in addition to three boat landings with easy access to the trail for boaters.
