All paved or concrete but about .3 miles of gravel mostly flat some steep climbs

Great park to walk and bike. Great for kids. Riverfront park section has a playground. There is also a walking suspension bridge here to cross over to downstream tip of Long Island. Now overtaken mostly by Eastman on the other side, this Island was the Mecca for Cherokee people's. It was sacred land taken from them in a "treaty" causing the famous split of chief dragging canoe to form the chickamagua tribe that settled in the Chattanooga region. This tribe cursed, terrorized and raided white settlements, all the way up to Pennsylvania, for decades as revenge against the treaty. Lots of history and energy in this area. Great to watch wildlife such as beavers and blue herons near sunset. Long Island is a great place to meditate and reconnect

I walk this regularly. It is multi-use trail shared with bicycles. It is paved and is a moderate difficulty trail. Easy access and an opportunity to escape urban hiking. Several places to get off and eat, drink or rest. The trail follows the river and offers some pastoral and wildlife views. Trail is safe and has several water fountains and facilities.

Nice paved well maintained the last .3 miles is gravel, there is a swinging bridge along the way that leads to Indian land, a few parks along the way, not to crowded.
