The Teanaway is a favorite among WTA staff. And now, this area is even better for outdoor recreation with the addition of the Teanaway Community Forest.

WTA is working on a future-looking trail network that will accommodate the increasing demand in a sustainable way. Follow along with our progress here and how it folds into our larger vision of rebooting popular trail systems around the state.
