Chattanooga Riverwalk (Tennessee Riverpark)

AWESOME URBAN TRAIL!

April, 2022 by thejake91739

On a cool March morning with a threat of rain, we experienced the riverwalk on our bikes. Traveling from Southern California, we stayed in the perfectly placed Marriott Springhill Suites right on the trail at Cameron Harbor. From there we biked upriver to the TVA Chickamauga Dam, a distance of about eight miles before returning the same way.

The trail is in superb condition, mostly concrete and some boardwalks. Twists and turns, bridges, spectacular river views, and more art installations than I have ever seen along a bike trail make this an incredible ride! Even though we had to come back the same way, seeing the river from the downriver angle gave me an entirely different perspective and awesome views.

On the way back, we took the time to take a short spur out along South Chickamauga Creek where it joins the Tennessee River. This is a great scenic viewpoint, and if you have kids with you there are several playground spots along this portion of the trail.

We also took the time on the way back to cross the Walker Street Pedestrian Bridge just for the fun of it. Great views up and down the river from the center of the architecturally pleasing structure. Well worth the time!

On the downside, there were a couple of spots that left the river, veered inland, and made their way around some industry where you do have to cross some not very busy streets, but that's life in the big city. It's too bad the big businesses couldn't donate a strip of their land along the riverfront to the city for the good of the community and the continuity of the riverfront trail.. Also, be prepared for a couple of short climbs, and the noise of the street traffic is pretty annoying in a couple of places.

However, all in all, for an urban trail system, I must say the city planners did a tremendous job, and the maintenance of the path is absolutely outstanding! This retired teacher gives the city of Chattanooga an A+ and the trail five stars! We are so glad we selected this city and its trail for our Tennessee bike ride on our quest to bicycle in all fifty states!

Chief Ladiga Trail

Great Ride

April, 2022 by ileana53

I'm 68 years old and rode the 66 miles from Anniston and back. I enjoyed the entire trail but the last 10 miles or so through Talladega National Forest were beautiful. Very well-maintained trail. The old train depot in Jacksonville is nice and Piedmont struck me as a typical Alabama town. Very glad I did it though strong wind gusts made it difficult at times in open areas.

South Chickamauga Creek Greenway

awesome.

April, 2022 by debtsucks58

Now completed to Camp Jordan. Beautiful scenery along the creek on incredible board walk system. Bonus - on weekends perfect train spotting location where it crosses the TVRM track. See the Southern 4501 steam engine from different angles crossing the bridge over the creek.

South Chickamauga Creek Greenway

Good News

April, 2022 by dahlden1

This trail is completed!! It is now time to get the map on this app updated. We started at Riverpark and rode to Camp Jordan. This trail in the first 2/3s is made up of boardwalks. The boards are spaced together and fairly smooth. I was pleasantly surprised by the smoothness of this trail. The southern 1/3 of the trail is constructed of decaying asphalt and needs repair. There are two places that signage needs to be placed to help riders make the correct turns. The first is about a mile from Riverpark. There needs to be a sign indicating staying to the right. The second signage needs to be at Shallowford and Airport Roads. Riders need to turn West on Shallowford and stay on the sidewalk.

Aldridge Creek Greenway

nice!

Silver Comet Trail

Nice ride

Nice trail pavement. Lots of rest stops if needed. Will return in future.

Chief Ladiga Trail

nice smooth trail

April, 2022 by jpizzino

I just did the lower 13 miles from the Michael Tucker park in Anniston. Very nice mostly smooth trail mostly through woods and farmland, along some small streams. Lots of wildflowers this spring. Very little traffic on the few streets I had to cross, not many walkers and fewer cyclists on the trail. Just a caution if you are camping at the trailhead: flat field campground has many low spots holding water after yesterday’s rain. Watch where you put your tent. The restroom is only marginally maintained. Shower water is warm but only comes in brief bursts. Note to the town of Anniston: litter pick up along the trail is needed at your end. Rest of the trail was quite clean.

Great trail! Very soothing and scenic. Will definitely do again.

Silver Comet Trail

Great Trail

February, 2022 by jeffduma

Well maintained very safe trail. Crosses several roads that are well marked. Each crossing had a signal to stop traffic. Heavily used by walkers. Everyone was friendly and stayed to the right. Made passing easy. A lot resting spots on the route. Definitely a must ride.

Kingfisher Trail

Silver Comet Trail

Chief Lagida and Silver Comet Trails

January, 2022 by jkboucher

We rode these two Hall of Fame trails, west to east, on Dec. 27 & 28, 2021, overnighting in Cedartown, GA. Daytime temperature averaging 70. Trail is well-maintained, with excellent surface, well-lit tunnels and interesting trestles. Scenery was peaceful and serene with streams, ponds, and alternating woods, meadows and pastures. A super breakfast/lunch stop is Elevated Grounds Coffee Shop in the sleepy little town of Piedmont, AL. Also, bike shop next door will do repairs, etc. Another must stop is Rooted Trading Company in Powder Springs, GA. Both businesses offer shuttle service.
