New French Broad Access at Johnson University

Over the coming year, Johnson University will undertake a feasibility study toward creating public access to the French Broad River on the university campus. This new access point will close a gap of limited access along this waterway.  In addition to the new river access, Johnson University plans to create a network of over 8-miles of multi-use trails along the ridge outlining their campus. This new trail system will be a wonderful amenity to all and especially this area of south Knox County where no such trail system currently exists.
