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

The trails were pretty good and there are a lot of options depending on your fitness levels. There are quite a few places that have trees over the trails causing detours. We did go down to the falls, pretty unstable rocks and quite steep, never did find the lake, but there are some nice lookout points higher up. I would take my dogs here, probably wouldn't take them down to the falls unless you do that kind of thing with them often.

Nice hike, some rocks to traverse. Can't see the falls, but beautiful views of the Tennessee River.

This section is a nice walk in the woods and relaxing stroll through the Roan Highlands. The views are amazing going over the balds and Hump Mountain. Doll Flats was a nice surprising gem.

very pleasant walk on mostly paved path. I will walk this trail again!

fun bike ride. easy for all ages.

There is some challenge to it in the rocks you climb over. But over all a nice trail. Great day on the rainbow lake trail.

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.

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.

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

A beautiful route but slightly longer than the 18 mile listed distance. We deviated and walked up the Grassy Ridge Bald, which added to our mileage, but not significantly. Water sources are flowing well as of July 15, 2017.
