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 and quiet. kids loved it.

This trail is a pedestrian crossing and isn’t dangerous at all.

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.

Great time with family

Definitely would not consider this a trailhead or hike. It's an extremely short walk through the city to some information kiosks.

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.

Terrible. Don't do this bridge. Very loud, dangerous and absolutely no markings or instructions. It is a bridge crossing and should not even be on this app as a trail.

South side features rolling hills and an interesting line. The north side had a lot of uneven driveway sections that made for a bumpy ride!

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.

Great place to walk.

This is a Loop Greenway that goes up one side of Lamar Alexander Parkway and back down the other with underpasses in 3 spots and many side road crossings not very crowed with views of the Smoky MT. in the distance coming back down the other side has some river access.
