Chattanooga Riverwalk (Tennessee Riverpark)

Trail closed 10/7/2019 for 3 weeks at Rowing Center

October, 2019 by cheryl77

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.

Historic Bridgeport Walking Trail

Tiny But Impactful Rail Trail

October, 2019 by edmcanally

This jewel of a trail is making me reconsider skipping all the small trails. At right at 2 miles round trip, the Bridgeport Walking Trail boasts outstanding scenery, a river crossing and parallels a working railroad. The trail begins near the old depot on Bonner Ave. A steep ascension is difficult to navigate in 90+ degree heat but soon transitions to a gravel railroad bed leading to the Tennessee River. If you wish to ride to the bridge, I’d advise taking the paved Bonner Ave. If you are traveling I24, take the South Pittsburgh Exit and and stretch a few minutes in Bridgeport.

Chattanooga Riverwalk (Tennessee Riverpark)

Great Trail

September, 2019 by jasperpjm

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.

One of my faves

Put together the ride between downtown and the dam with lunch over the River.

Ride and Lunch

September, 2019 by philipking

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.

Chattanooga Riverwalk (Tennessee Riverpark)

Nice Urban Trail

May, 2019 by normanbowers

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.

Phantom Sheep

January, 2019 by mmwait1964

I have lived on Lookout Mountain my entire life and can guarantee that you will not spot bighorn sheep. That made me laugh!

South Chickamauga Creek Greenway

Beautiful quiet run

October, 2018 by schadowmt

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.

Chattanooga Riverwalk (Tennessee Riverpark)

great ride

October, 2018 by lambertkayla2015

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.

Cleveland/Bradley County Greenway

Sets the Standard for a Tennessee Greenway

July, 2018 by edmcanally

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.

South Chickamauga Creek Greenway

Very nice ride!

July, 2018 by edmcanally

Excellent use of boardwalks to make this trail accessible. A most enjoyable outing!

Chattanooga Riverwalk (Tennessee Riverpark)

wonderful time and scenic views

July, 2018 by ejthfcc

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.
