Northeast Community Credit Union donated $100 to Grow Carter County to help support the newly dedicated Storybook Trail.

The Storybook Trail covers a quarter-mile down the Tweetsie Trail in Elizabethton near Harold McCormick Elementary and features 10 trail markers for walkers to explore. Each marker features a different page from a book, and visitors must stop at each marker to complete the tale.

Grow Carter County Chairman Josh McKinney says the trail will allow kids and they family to explore the outdoors while taking in reading opportunities at each of the markers.

“We hope this addition will help make the trail an even greater asset in increasing the community’s health and happiness,” McKinney said.
