We started north and east of downtown at Tennessee Riverpark Curtain Pole Road. Free parking! There are several places along the trail like this, so look around. In downtown, you’ll have to pay for 2hr parking at Ross Landing. It was a really nice ride out to the end of the trail at the dam and back. Mostly park-like with some industrial sprinkled in as well. All of this area is well manicured. We saw areas where a nearby business had dedicated the improvement to their employees. We then made our way downtown. It’s beautiful, with a lot of pedestrians so take care. There are a couple of switchbacks on the trail there, but you can do it! Downtown you’ll need your gps maps to confirm the bike routes. The Walnut Street Bridge affords a great many views. As we made our way west and south, the trail went through some of the older industrial areas and ends near the Lookout Mountain Railway. A great fall ride for us.
Only got to do half the trail due to weather conditions, but what we saw was very scenic, wooded & well kept & clean.
This trail was just gorgeous, well kept, & clean. The first half was very wooded and scenic. The second half was thru the town congested and had lots of streets and lights to go thru. We enjoyed it because we wanted to see what the town had business wise.
We have done this trail twice from Camp Jordan. But if you want a shorter ride and experience all the amazing boardwalks start at Hawthorne Trailhead. Immediately you are on a short section of boardwalk and then continue on a lovely paved trail through the forests. You will soon hit two more amazing long boardwalk sections high in the trees. In a total of about 5 miles you will get the best of the trail.
We did this last year traveling across country again this year on our way to FL. I often wish TrailLink had some kind of mile markings on their map. But we started at the RiverPark and it is 6.5 miles down to the bridge to ride over the river. And right there at the bridge crossing. Is the best ice cream parlor ever!
We biked this lovely trail from the Springhill Suites, which is right on the trail, to the dam. The paved trail follows the Tennessee River and is pretty easy to navigate, with a few tricky areas around the Hunter Museum and Walnut Street bridge. I loved all the art displays including the mile markers which are metal silhouettes of various people. We felt safe the entire length and enjoyed it immensely.
We biked this trail from Camp Jordan to the Riverwalk, about 12 miles. The southern portion was sunny & degraded with gravelly spots, along Brainerd Levee until you cross hwy 11. From there it’s smooth riding with many long (some 1/2 mi) boardwalks that hug the creek. It was scenic and lightly used on that Saturday. I’d recommend the northern portion for sure!
Too much city and behind industrial plants
Markings for trail not there. We just looped the park. More signs are needed.
This trail is listed as good for in-line skating, but a large section of the trail is very rough / old pavement, and much of the rest of it has long hills and sharp turns.
This was a gentle incline hike from the Guild Trailhead parking lot on Ochs Hwy to Rainbow Falls then back, it was about 3 1/2 miles total. The trail was easy to traverse with some scattered rocks and an occasional bridge that would supply a vista of the Chattanooga area, it was a quiet trail on the weekday. I came across a couple of runners and a bike the entire time. I rather lost the trail at Rainbow Falls, perhaps I didn’t look too hard and I was content to return. Because I was birdwatching, this took me a couple hours, but a true hiker could do it quite quickly and easily, it’s a very nice trail.
Nice trail through Townsend area. Paved, some ups and downs but no hard climbs. Not a whole lot to see really. Restaurant near north end has good food. You can take the bike underpass at the north end, cross under the four lane and then cross the small river and pick up the road on the left along the river. Take that through Walland all the way to the intersection with Ellejoy road. This is a nice ride along the river with minimal traffic and only one hill at Walland. There is a parking lot just across the intersection on Ellejoy road. I ve parked there, pedaled to the end of the trail in Townsend and back.
