I run the northern part (most of it) out and back to the Riverpoint parking area.Very quiet and very few other people on the trail. Like running in the woods 8-). I will be back.
Great ride, needs better signs. Great playgrounds piers and many public restrooms along the way. Started at Chickamauga dam to wheland foundry around 13 miles. Around downtown/ross’s landing confusing and busy but past that theres not many ppl and signs seem some better. Well worth the effort, will do again.
Wonderful example of uniting retail, residential and recreational facilities. The park is as functional as it is recreational and boasts tasteful public art and a good balance of sponsor recognition. Plenty of shelters, restrooms, and benches dot the trail. Trail lighting extends usefulness. However, the Creek is the main attraction. Undergrowth really should be cut away in many places to expose the massive rocks and noisy cascades. One of the best greenways I've experienced.
Excellent use of boardwalks to make this trail accessible. A most enjoyable outing!
I tried the trail from both ends. The Dam side offers some superb views of the river and the marsh area and quite a number of wildlife along the way. The downtown side offered a great view of the historic and industrial era of the city and a number of good views of the city riverfront and opportunities to digress up to the Aquarium and downtown. The center of the trail is a bit confusing. I needed to ask several folk how to stay on trail, especially around the Hunter museum. Signage needs improved there and at other points where the trail options point in multiple directions.
Great short trail between Chattanooga and Nashville. We parked across from the DG in Monteagle. The first section is a bit “zig-zaggy” but the remaining section is very nicely shaded. At the Sewanee trailhead, we crossed the highway and spent some time/miles exploring the majestic University of the South campus. Upon returning, we lunched at the market named after the trail for some awesome post ride sandwiches; you can bike to it and beyond. I can’t wait to re-ride when the connections to Cowan & Tracy City are completed!
MGT is my home trail and I’m biased. I want you to visit. If you are traveling I-24 past Monteagle, drop in and enjoy the Goat. Presently, the trail runs on the old Mountain Goat line from Sewanee to near Marion County line. It crosses the highway and runs parallel to it into Monteagle (4.7 miles.) we really enjoy the nostalgia of riding the old line. You can picture the coal train lumbering across the forested ridge line. We ride a slight incline from Sewanee to Monteagle and then coast back. I give this trail 4 Stars for two reasons: road crossings and maintenance. Nothing to do about the road crossing but be aware of them. The trail is old enough to have a few root problems affecting the asphalt. Mowing lacks a clear consistent plan. Still it’s 2/3’rds shady and quite enjoyable. A new section from Monteagle to Tracy City is presently under construction. Soon the MGT will be a destination trail.
This is a new fav usa scenic bike path, my biggest gripe is most reviews suggest parking/starting at Ross's Crossing. This is a good spot to park if you are familiar with the bike path however if it is your first time you will be thoroughly confused, as there is ZERO signage, many stairs to climb which will have you scratching your head "am I really on a bike path?" many streets that have auto traffic, again; "this cant be the bike path". Once you clear these confusing obstacles you will be well on your way to a great ride, or you could just start at (Boathouse Rotisserie & Raw Bar)/vicinity and avoid all this confusing BS.
We didn't complete the trail but it was perfect for the kids (10 and 7). It was dirt and gravel with some hills but not too challenging.
We had a wonderful time walking the trail, seeing the old train depot and antique trains...but, our greatest thrill was encountering an active freight train on the parallel train tracks while crossing the beautiful pedestrian bridge this morning. The very friendly Conductors gave us several nice whistle blows and we enjoyed waving back at them. The walk across the Tennessee River on the old train trestle was a truly beautiful experience. Many thanks to all in Bridgeport.
We drove up from Jacksonville, AL, where we ride the Chief Ladiga Bike Trail quite often. Riverwalk Trail was a wonderful surprise. The only negative was we felt that the trail could have been marked better, but, we will definitely be back. The views are amazing and the trail is VERY well maintained.
My husband and I drove down from Cleveland TN after reading about the Heritage Park Trail online. The pictures online made it very appealing. However, the directions to find the park and walking trails were zero. Our GPS system brought us to a left turn in the town and we were left on her own to find the park We found a boat ramp and a small playground that some children were playing on I asked a lady there if she could tell me where the trails were. She thought if we took the walkway around where the children were playing it would put us on the trail and take us down next to the Atlanta Braves park. We ended up at what look like a sewer treatment plant. There were no markings on the trail to say go this way or go that way. We could see a beautiful historic area across the river but wasn't sure how to get there. On our return back after about 2 miles in the sun and passing a sewage treatment plant we decided to take a bridge across to the other side where we found a very pleasant walking trail. If you advertise your trail, you should give some definite directions for the trail and there should be signs along the way identifying how many miles and what's up ahead. Maps identifying all of the historical buildings would even be nice. Unfortunately we were on a time crunch and regret we didn't get to see the best part of this trail. Not likely to come back.
