Aldridge Creek Greenway

Nice Sunny Ride

September, 2022 by bagolightly

We parked at the Ditto Landing end. Parking shown on the trail map was actually an RV Park so we parked at the marina area on the side where the trail begins. Trail was well maintained - asphalt and concrete. The first part was shady while the other end was sunny. The trail followed a creek where ducks, geese, turtles and some friendly doggies were enjoying splashing around. We really like how the trail did not cross any busy roads but pigtailed around to go underneath them and over the creek. There are several benches along the way if you need a rest stop. We saw about a dozen bikers and walkers on the trail today. We will ride there again once cooler.

Chattanooga Riverwalk (Tennessee Riverpark)

Wonderful trail and scenery. Terrible directional signage.

September, 2022 by fbooth

Great scenery and accommodations. The directional signage for the trail is poor, especially for newcomers to the city. The maze of trails south of the art museum is very confusing. Although there are warning signs for the wooden plank bridges, they can be very slippery when wet.

Aldridge Creek Greenway

Best Greenway in Huntsville

August, 2022 by stuart.obermann

Aldridge creek greenway is one of the most popular in town and for good reason. It is the longest continuous path without having to ride on public roads - stretching about 7 miles from Ken Johnson Park on Mt Gap Road to the TN River at Ditto Landing. If you take the TN River Greenway to the marina at the east end, you get 7+ miles one way. Recent tree planting are starting to provide shade on those long stretches without shade. A great place for a walk, ride or run!

Mountain Goat Trail

Nice trail mostly under shade trees!

August, 2022 by wford1

This trail is very accessible. Can park in a lot at the trailhead in Swanee. Old railroad bed that has been paved. Slight elevation contours and relatively straight. Coupled it with a really good ride at the Universities’s campus. Very quaint and beautiful campus. Rode when school was not in session so we had unobstructed ride. Great little sandwich shops downtown. Would recommend all the above.

Chattanooga Riverwalk (Tennessee Riverpark)

A GREAT ride!

June, 2022 by drcalland19

What a great experience! My wife and I are new to TN trails and had heard a lot about this trail - it DOES NOT disappoint. Tons of shade, places to stop and view nature, architecture, rest - even places to put air in your tires and repair your bike. The trail has myriad places to stop if restrooms are needed. There are several places on the trail where it really isn't the best for inexperienced bikers. This is related to ramps that weave back and forth at 90 degree turns-not good for crowds- definitely need to walk the bike in these spaces. Next time we are taking a picnic or perhaps stopping and one of the many eateries near walnut street bridge. What a great day!

Chattanooga Riverwalk (Tennessee Riverpark)

AWESOME URBAN TRAIL!

April, 2022 by thejake91739

On a cool March morning with a threat of rain, we experienced the riverwalk on our bikes. Traveling from Southern California, we stayed in the perfectly placed Marriott Springhill Suites right on the trail at Cameron Harbor. From there we biked upriver to the TVA Chickamauga Dam, a distance of about eight miles before returning the same way.

The trail is in superb condition, mostly concrete and some boardwalks. Twists and turns, bridges, spectacular river views, and more art installations than I have ever seen along a bike trail make this an incredible ride! Even though we had to come back the same way, seeing the river from the downriver angle gave me an entirely different perspective and awesome views.

On the way back, we took the time to take a short spur out along South Chickamauga Creek where it joins the Tennessee River. This is a great scenic viewpoint, and if you have kids with you there are several playground spots along this portion of the trail.

We also took the time on the way back to cross the Walker Street Pedestrian Bridge just for the fun of it. Great views up and down the river from the center of the architecturally pleasing structure. Well worth the time!

On the downside, there were a couple of spots that left the river, veered inland, and made their way around some industry where you do have to cross some not very busy streets, but that's life in the big city. It's too bad the big businesses couldn't donate a strip of their land along the riverfront to the city for the good of the community and the continuity of the riverfront trail.. Also, be prepared for a couple of short climbs, and the noise of the street traffic is pretty annoying in a couple of places.

However, all in all, for an urban trail system, I must say the city planners did a tremendous job, and the maintenance of the path is absolutely outstanding! This retired teacher gives the city of Chattanooga an A+ and the trail five stars! We are so glad we selected this city and its trail for our Tennessee bike ride on our quest to bicycle in all fifty states!

Redstone Arsenal Fitness Trail

nice trail

April, 2022 by csnoopy1030

Lol! Visiting and had to get cleared and parked by golf course. A bit steep hill to get started on a tad pole trike but a nice trail overall.

Great trail! Very soothing and scenic. Will definitely do again.

Gateway Greenway

I found this to be an easy quick 2 mile walk. If you are just starting like me to work on getting healthy this is perfect. The history that you are walking around makes it interesting too.
