We are on the greenway all over town all the time. They are great! They are all paved which makes it perfect for a bike ride, walking or jogging. There are restrooms and water fountains along the way and places to picnic. Just make sure you use your etiquette and announce when you come up to pass someone and don't fly around blind corners. There may be someone on the path. There have been people road biking using the greenway as if they are on the road. They go way too fast where people are walking and having a good time with their children.
Other than the road bikers, the greenways are great!
The trail is a little odd. It kinda starts at the end of the Riverwalk but isn't clearly marked. Also you have to cross multiple streets to stay on the path. With that said, myself, my MIL, and our young children had a great time and I will be walking it again. We walked from the beginning of the Riverwalk to the end of the Upland trail and back with a double stroller. The whole trail is paved.
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.
