Fantastic place for any type of run; long, speed, or easy. This place can’t be beat! Start at the dam for pancake flat miles. Out and back up to 12 miles total with no elevation gain. For more of a challenge (and beautiful river views), start downtown and incorporate the bridges into your run.

Best place in Chattanooga to go for a short or long run and train for a race. Connects to South Chickamauga Creek Greenway too.

Great trail. Very well marked. Get to see a lot of the Chattanooga highlights. You can even do it by using the Chattanooga bike system.

With the opening of the Broad St. terminus, & the South Chickamauga Creek section, there are plenty of places to walk/hike. With Broad St. terminus, makes things easier for hikers on GREAT EASTERN TRAIL getting to downtown Chattanooga. From Broad St. to Chickamauga Dam is round 13 miles, makes for sa great hike.

Concrete trail, lots of lights, water/bathroom stops abound. Very scenic in parts.

Walked part of this today. Was a blast. Recommend the walnut street bridge(pedestrian bridge) as well, (you pass it on trail) easy walk, plus cool art exhibits along the way.

Chattanooga put a lot of money into this parklike paved trail along the river. We parked at the Boathouse restaurant (very good) and walked downtown to the art district. Stay to the right. There are bikers that use this trail also. Great views of the river and we saw a lot of Canadian geese.
If I lived in Chattanooga this hike/walk would be one of my regular activities.

Starts at Chickamauga Dam and travels along the Tennessee River for a good distance then goes inland and back to the river, trail is concrete almost all the way with lots of bridges, one has a glass bottom, multiple restrooms along the trail, a couple of wet lands if you like to bird watch, over all it is a great trail but only 4 stars because it was so crowded in the downtown area the market square was packed. It has multiple bike rental stations along the trail.
