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.
Great greenway!!! Nice and peaceful! Majority shaded. Pavement smooth and well cared for. Maps of this area not so good- hard to follow. Easy to follow and access when actually on greenway though. Best greenway in town and surrounding area!!!
Beautiful scenery. Easy trail grade overall. Saw some very large sycamore trees. Saw soft shell turtles, frogs and box turtles on the trail and great blue herons at the waters edge. Only drawbacks: 5 of the six bridge approaches were hernia busters, some at least 3-4 inches high; no mileage signs at all, no maps at the TH, no maps on the kiosks either (like to take a photo of map to use as guide), no real TH at Lock A either. Still a good trail despite the roots and washouts and the frequent and large black walnut husks and osage oranges. Hitting those items at speed could cause a wreck. I think I knocked the box turtle with my bike. I hope the fella pulls through. Hard to see him with all the leaf litter, branches, dirt and rocks on the trail.
I don't get the 5 star reviews or the trail description. Rode from behind Titans stadium to trail end. It is 14.26 miles round trip. After you clear the Riverfront area full of trash and homeless, the first half of the trail is past warehouses, and cement factories. You can't see the river at all. When you clear that you still have warehouses on the land side and the view in this section of the river ain't much. No water and one porta-potie that I assume is associated with the golf course.
Nice ride along the Cumberland River, but you’d never know it. While grass around the trail was well maintained, undergrowth from trail to river blocks over 90% of water view. Otherwise, loved the experience.
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!
We went 4.8 out and back. Nice combo of up and down gentle incline decline. Light packed gravel. I have Trek Dual sport and good for this since little wider tire. Good wide trail.
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.
