Trail Information

The Tail of the Newt is a Motor Scooter/Bike trail that uses rural paved roads that surround Andrews. It winds through the upper portion the area known as Pisgah, with beautiful views of the surrounding mountains and small pastures and farms.

There are two loops in the eastern section; the primary beginning on Locust Street or Bristol Ave in mid town Andrews, climbing to the high point at the turn-off to Hawksdene House. The other route follows Aquone Road to Junaluska Road where the route takes an immediate turn onto Pisgah Rd and after miles intersects with Bristol Avenue.

The first portion of both these routes is easy peddling until the steep grade just before the summit.

If you choose to follow US business 19 and Bike Route #2, and not take Hyatt Creek Loop, a nice nature park is .6 miles on your right at the Marble School. Marble Springs Nature Park
