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.

on The Tennessee Riverwalk

My wife and I, our three teenagers, and our dog found this hike to be a great mix of elevation gains, forested ridges, and grassy balds. There were plenty of water sources along the way, as well as many different options for setting up camp each night. The views from the balds are amazing. Highly recommended.

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.
