We rode this trail today and learned about “Faith” Hill at the very end of the trail, just beyond the construction site of the last 3 miles that is going to join the trail to Camp Jordan. At any rate, the hill is loose gravel and straight up! Be prepared to work your bike to get up that hill and we were sliding on the way back down, but overall, a great, fun ride on a beautiful and blustery spring day. Do it, you won’t be disappointed!
Great 10 mile ride. narrow in some sections and VERY busy on weekends. We rode on a warm day in the middle of the week. Will do again in Speing!
Great urban trail that goes along the waterfront, and through wooded and swamped areas. All paved
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!
Prefect for beginners. The view of the trial is beautiful
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
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.
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!
This trail is on either side of the road for about 4.5 miles. There is a parking lot at the east end at the corner of Towns End dr. Across the street from there is a gas station with bathrooms outdoors. Townsend is tucked in between mountains near the entrance to the Great Smoky Mountains so the views are spectacular. There are several historical sites and markers, along with a couple of informative signs about more area history. If you get hungry be sure and stop at one of the many local restaurants. I always follow my ride with a dunk in the river. It's also worth noting that one side of the road is mostly flat while the other is quite hilly so you can choose easy or challenging.
Knoxville has several trails and this one is connected to a couple of others including Sequoyah and 3 mile creek. There are plenty of trees, benches and shade. Rolling hills make it a fun ride. Holston Park has a bathroom and parking. It also connects to Southerland Ave in a couple of places if you want to stop for lunch.
Very green trail with .10 mile markers which I thought were annoying at 1st then they became fun milestones Also, zero hills and great shade. Great trail for pace running
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.
