OAK RIDGE, Tenn. (AP) - The state's newest Discover Tennessee Trail is the "Top Secret Trail" named in honor of Oak Ridge.

State tourism officials announced the trail Friday, the 15th of 16 self-guided driving tours in Tennessee. It is made up of sites and attractions in Knox, Anderson, Campbell, Overton, Fentress, Morgan, Scott, Clay, Roane and Pickett counties.

Spokesmen said the trail, like the others, will showcase history, culture, music and cuisine. A Top Secret brochure highlights 111 points of interest.

Oak Ridge was known as "the secret city" when it developed the atomic bomb in the early 1940s.
