The Town of Marshall TRACK Trail is located on Blannahassett Island’s loop trail. The TRACK trail is a flat trail that is 0.5 miles round-trip with gorgeous views of the French Broad River and surrounding mountains. Blannahassett Island also has picnic areas, fishing, and the restored Marshall High Studios.
A quick walk or drive over the river takes you to downtown Marshall. Marshall is a rich crossroads of rural Appalachian History which is interwoven in its existing craft and music culture. Main Street, lined with original buildings including our century-old courthouse, is home to artists’ studios, galleries, music and dance venues, and eclectic shops. Bluegrass and old-time music is played throughout the year. To learn more, visit The Town of Marshall website.
