White Lightning Trail

White Lightning Trail

The White Lightning Driving Trail offers 200 miles of unique American stories told every day through Appalachian arts and crafts, preserved buildings and sites, historic town squares and the tales of legendary characters.

One stop along the White Lightning Trail is Norris Dam. The Tennessee Valley Authority began the dam project in 1933 and created the town of Norris to house the 28,000-man labor force. In 1935, the gates of newly constructed Norris Dam were closed, altering the flow of the Clinch River, flooding 34,000 acres and displacing 3,000 families. Norris Lake has 22 marinas and plenty of secluded coves for fishing and boating, camping and lodging, or simply enjoying the majestic surroundings.
