Guild-Hardy Trail

great ride

November, 2020 by bigjonstaging

Definitely bumpy because it is gravel. I rode it the autumn so gravel and leafy. Some beautiful spots to point and shoot. From a tourist perspective- you get to see the incline, ruby falls, and craven’s house. The only “treacherous” part is the 200 yards of curvy roads and traffic at the end of the trail if you are trying to go all the way to the top of the mountain. You have to really work those legs. If you do, you can easily make it past some of the nicest views off the mountain, past the top of the incline, and to point park.

Chattanooga Riverwalk (Tennessee Riverpark)

Mesmerizing!

September, 2020 by chatchette

This trail is beyond amazing. It was the most enjoyable ride I have ever taken. Chattanooga must be pround. There are other trails around the city that I would rate with 5 ****"s as well. The scenery, the historical markers, the cleanliness, the river views, all are awesome!

Heritage Park Trail

Needs to be Resurfaced

September, 2020 by oldnslow1

I have rode the trail numerous times and it is getting in worst shape. A lot of bumps where roots have grown under the asphalt causing it to rise up. ROME -----Please keep the maintenance up and the cut back the brush so people can see the River..

South Chickamauga Creek Greenway

very scenic, boardwalks slippery

September, 2020 by mlcbear

Very nice trail, away from traffic , not busy. We headed out around 9:30 am. It had rained overnight. A couple of the wooden board walks were like oil. I went down twice. By the time we road to the end & turned around only the one was still slick. If it has rained I would recommend riding this in the afternoon. It is almost completed shaded, so it would be rideable. My only other complaint is there were a couple places trees had taken out part of the railing. At one it had taken out the flooring. I would have given this 5 stars, if not for needed repairs & slick boards. out part of the boardwalk

Cleveland/Bradley County Greenway

awesome trail

August, 2020 by mkchevier

My wife and I went here today for a bike ride and by far this is the best trail system we have been on. Impressed with the cleanliness and beauty of the area.

Chattanooga Riverwalk (Tennessee Riverpark)

Fantastic trail!

August, 2020 by redmaypril

I biked this with my family last month. Definitely one of the best bike paths I’ve ridden on. Not crowded, flat, and gorgeous scenery! Part of the trail was closed but there is a detour around it (if you’re coming from downtown, you turn into the big parking lot and follow the highway, and turn left after the railroad tracks. That road veers to the right and then you’re back in business). There were bathrooms nicely spaced out and even some water stations. Highly recommend and will becoming back!

Chattanooga Riverwalk (Tennessee Riverpark)

Trail closed 10/7/2019 for 3 weeks at Rowing Center

October, 2019 by cheryl77

We parked at Chickamauga Dam Riverpark and got on the trail heading towards downtown Chattanooga. The trail is well maintained and utilized by a variety of residents, all of whom were respectful and mannered. However, when we got to the Rowing Center we discovered the trail had closed two days ago for a three week period. Just FYI as we were not aware. There were other people surprised at the trail closing as well when we were there.

Historic Bridgeport Walking Trail

Tiny But Impactful Rail Trail

October, 2019 by edmcanally

This jewel of a trail is making me reconsider skipping all the small trails. At right at 2 miles round trip, the Bridgeport Walking Trail boasts outstanding scenery, a river crossing and parallels a working railroad. The trail begins near the old depot on Bonner Ave. A steep ascension is difficult to navigate in 90+ degree heat but soon transitions to a gravel railroad bed leading to the Tennessee River. If you wish to ride to the bridge, I’d advise taking the paved Bonner Ave. If you are traveling I24, take the South Pittsburgh Exit and and stretch a few minutes in Bridgeport.

Chattanooga Riverwalk (Tennessee Riverpark)

Great Trail

September, 2019 by jasperpjm

We biked from the southern terminus to the boat launch, about 10 miles. Real nice, very scenic , lots of sculptures along the way. Trail along river north of there was closed. We probably could have and should have worked our way around the closed section but we did not.
Lots of variety. Some old abandoned buildings from a previous time and some new ones from today.
Markings were poor in some places.

One of my faves

Put together the ride between downtown and the dam with lunch over the River.

Ride and Lunch

Rode from the trailhead near boathouse restaurant to the dam. Then back and beyond to downtown. Back to the Boathouse for lunch before hitting the road home.
