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.
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.
Put together the ride between downtown and the dam with lunch over the River.
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.
Good for walking and leisure riding, cruddy for any kind of actual workout.
Don't miss this trail. I use it often both on bicycle and walking with dogs. Beautiful and clean!
Yes sometimes there are slippery spots on the boardwalk sections but don't all nice trails have this at some point. My suggestion is to keep your eyes open.
A very nice well maintained trail from Old Alabama Road to Marconi - approx 8 miles one way. The trail is nearly 100% in the woods along Big Creek. All concrete and nice width. We were riding on Sat 10 - 11:30 - there was fair amount of traffic, but not overly so. The trail crosses under all major roads / no at grade crossings.
The only negative is the signage is lacking / a little hard to tell what trail branches go to where. But, now that we have ridden the trail, we are more likely not to make the several wrong turns we made today.
I actually enjoyed this trail better than SC, only because it was less crowded.
Our family has walked a out half-way so far. We did this for something different. We plan to do the whole trail soon. my son and I will be taking a fishing pole next time.
From downtown to the dam this is one of the nicest urban trials I have ever ridden. The trail follows the river with great views. The surface is smooth concrete with many restrooms and adjacent parks. Downtown is confusing, be careful or you may inadvertently be riding down steps. I would suggest not parking downtown as it is hard to find the trail. Park at one of the trail heads and ride toward downtown.
West of downtown the trail is mostly in the sun and goes through an industrial area. The trail is not scenic but appears safe and is a good ride.
On our 50th wedding anniversary trip from Michigan to Gulf Shores we stopped at Piedmont and rode the Chief Ladiga trail to the start of the Silver Comet. Beautiful sunny day and quite warm. The trail is definitely a slight easy uphill grade going east. The lack of any restroom facilities at the junction of Chief Ladiga and the Silver Comet trails was very disappointing as was the lack of places to stop and see the beauty that surrounds. There’s some rough spots caused by roots but not so bad as to cause a problem.
It was a great day to be on a trail for a walk. The west end of this trail is at Manor Crest Court, not far from East Cobb Park. A paved but narrow sidewalk continues past that point going west. Heading east toward Roswell, the trail is a wide concrete path. The first significant point of interest is East Cobb Park where the trail crosses over Sewell Mill Creek. This is a nice park with ample parking. At this point there are trees on both sides of the road. The trail winds alongside Roswell Road going uphill toward Robinson Road where there begins to be businesses on both sides of the road and some intersections that require caution crossing. Traffic can be heavy and fast moving. Once past East Side Elementary school and Indian Hills Parkway, the trail is flat and easy. A stop at the small Bethlehem Primitive Baptist Church Cemetery is worthwhile to remember when this area was much different. A bike shop and several eating places are at this end of the trail which is at Seven Springs Circle, the eastern side of the Seven Springs subdivision. To this point, the distance is right at 1.5 miles, but the widened sidewalk continues on, allowing opportunities to follow either Roswell Road or Johnson Ferry. This is a short trail with a good bit of traffic and some tedious intersections, but a very worthwhile venue for some exercise. It is well marked and maintained except for a few small portions.
As part of a local heritage festival (Welshfest mid March annually) we checked out fest, music, tearoom, vendors, and biked from Rockmart to Coots Lake and back. Quick 10 miles RT and scenic. Loved the babbling creek, slate yards, craggy walls, tunnels, lake and caves. Cool stretch of trail from the best trail town on the route. Trailhead is on town square which offers South Marble coffee shop, Solis sandwich shop, Spice Street Cafe, cupcakery, museums, shops, a Slate House, green space, park, and weekly farmers market. Heard an airbnb is brewing. Meanwhile camping & mini cabins available at the Rock campground.
