Hardy Trail is a 2.8 mile loop trail located near Chattanooga, Tennessee that offers scenic views. The trail is rated as moderate and primarily used for hiking, trail running, and mountain biking.
Beautiful trail, I really enjoyed it. However, there are hardly any trail markers or signs to keep you on the Hardy trail. I had to ask around to find the trailhead and missed a turn along the trail which led me far from Hardy trail. There's a V in the trail about a mile or so in, and you need to take a right. There are no signs at that split, but left is definitely not Hardy. Otherwise, very nice trail and very peaceful.
First third is on a rocky vehicle-wide trail. Last 2/3 is one person-wide, mostly dirt trail.
Get to pass under the Incline railway track twice (second is only feet from the train itself).
There are four entries to this trail. I enjoy running this trail because it is wide and kept nice year round. great parking off of Ruby Falls parking lot.
