Not so great if you are expecting a bike trail that’s scenic. This runs the length of a major road. 3 lanes most of the ride. It was more of riding down a sidewalk.
This is my go to bike path. I start at Haw Ridge and ride to Elza Gate - 6miles one way. Great round trip ride! Very pretty scenery and some challenging hills.
Awesome biking experience on the Riverwalk Trail. Beautifully maintained and great to experience!!! Highly recommend!!!
Heavy rain all last night & this morning which caused Wolf River & tributaries to flood parts of the trail. All was passable but several muddy areas. Took wrong turn several times due to intersections not marked which way to go. Enjoyed the ride.
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!
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.
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.
Great trail for walking your dog, jogging, and biking. 3.6 miles from one end to the other. It is not a loop so you will need to turn around and retrace your steps to get back to the trailhead you parked at. There are 5 trailheads along the route to choose from. There is creek water for your dog to grab a drink from but most of it is along the middle part of the trail. All asphalt with 2 challenging hills, one in each direction of the trail. We live in White House and walk our dog here several times a week.
We rode bikes on this trail today. Started in Triple Creek Park but didn’t ride the entire trail. The trail is mostly concrete but some asphalt and is in good condition. They did a great job putting an underpass in so we didn’t have to cross the intersection of Broadway and Albert Gallatin. We’d ride this anytime we’re in the area. Triple Creek Park also has a great continuation of the trail.
Rode part of this trail from Triple Creek Park. Did not ride the entire trail, but it’s a great trail. Some asphalt and some concrete. All paved. A lot of bike path is in the park. Nice facilities for bathrooms. Nice underpass to avoid crossing major road at
Trail route included crossing Lamar Alexander and Montvale Rd. Traffic was respectful on both roads. Caution needed. Will park at the church next time. After crossing montvale and entering greenway to the parks, it was lovely seeing ducks, a heron, and bustling creek beside the greenway. There were alot of people on the trail.
Beautiful trail along the Cumberland River. The trail is paved and gravel. It also links to the Cheatham Damn Park and Campground. This is an older trail and pavement is bumpy and gravel part can be rough. All and all, this is a great trail for cycling or hiking!
