South Chickamauga Creek Greenway

Great "Rural Trail" In The Heart Of The City

November, 2021 by bensontbjj1

This trail has been built in many sections over the years with the last middle connector nearing completion. There was a period that some repairs seemed to have been ignored but within the last few months they have repaired a lot of damage that was either done by fallen trees or some rotten wood on the decking. The section that is currently connected to the Riverpark has parking at that location as well as North Hawthorne, Sterchi Farms and Faith Rd. Sterchi Farms is currently closed due to the upgrades that are being done on this area. The trail is technically closed at this point but most people just continue on because they are only disturbing about a 100 yard length of the trail and typically aren't even working on the trail itself anymore. The 2 bridges in this section are really nice bridges. This section stays right on the creek for the most part except where it goes behind Waterhaven Subdivision (thank you to those owners for their easement along their properties). There is an elevated section that climbs pretty far up the hillside to get around a large rock outcrop but gives a very nice elevated view of the creek. They have added bathrooms at Sterchi Farms recently as well as a covered picnic area. Adjacent to this area is a large area for climbing and playing.

The section currently connected to Camp Jordan has the levee that is pretty level and smooth but is mixed sections of packed and loose gravel so be aware of that if you do not like that type of surface. It does return to asphalt prior to going under I-75. There is a point where it crosses Brainerd Rd that you have to cross, at a traffic light, or go down the stairs, under the bridge then back up the stairs. The rest is all paved surface including the loop around Camp Jordan that used to be gravel.

Historic Bridgeport Walking Trail

Bridgeport Walking Trail

August, 2021 by brucebeach

Trail is one mile out, and one mile back(you have to make the roundtrip). You walk up an incline from the railway station parking lot, about 75 yards or less, and the rest of the walk is flat. The first half thru the park is almost all in the shade and then the walk across the bridge/river is all in the sun. Very beautiful, peaceful, an easy stroll for older people, like my wife and I. If you find yourself in the Bridgeport, Alabama area, I would highly reccomend.

Cleveland/Bradley County Greenway

Nice, Easy Bike Trail

July, 2021 by rbovine1

We rode this trail yesterday and enjoyed the shady, easy ride with concrete in good condition, light posts, markers for trees, plants, and plenty of access points with benches to rest and reflect or even picnic. The trail follows Mouse Creek, and we did note mud under a bridge that could be a hazard if going too fast, but no problems for us. We were glad to see that they had a sign that an additional grant for 1.6M was available to extend this trail as our only disappointment was it was too short. This trail was easy to access with plenty of parking at different areas, we will be back!

This greenway in Collegedale (Ooltewah) is well maintained and a pleasure to ride a bike through the whole Greenway path. Caution: lots of road construction near the path in places. Highly recommend this venue. Wonderful playground for young children!

Cleveland, TN
My husband and I ride our bikes the entire Greenway route, including the connectors. The Greenway is maintained by the city of Cleveland and the staff does a wonderful job clearing debris off the Greenway route plus removing the sand/mud from under the bridges along the Greenway. We enjoy and recommend using the Greenway!

Family friendly, paved the entire way, offers lots of shade.

South Chickamauga Creek Greenway

Beautiful Ride!

March, 2021 by rbovine1

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!

Chattanooga Riverwalk (Tennessee Riverpark)

A warm December ride.

December, 2020 by mewhitfield_tl

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!

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..
