just an update from my last review, i finally found what everyone is raving about. the houseman at the hotel informed us about where to pick up the trail. we went right to it and had a great ride, we were tired from riding other places so didn't get to more

Rode our bikes to river walk or what we thought it was. Found no signs or information where trail started. Talked with local people and they didn't have a clue. Finally found trail. Except it stops a starts again very frustrating. Not bike friendly especially more

Nice trail, more for walking than cycling

Every time my wife and I go to Chattanooga, we try to bring our bikes and do a ride on this trail. While we absolutely LOVE the trail, the only caveat is that so do a lot of casual walkers, many of whom have a tendency not to watch out for bike riders. more
