Tennessee Riverwalk

The Tennessee Riverwalk is a system of paved pathways that follow alongside the south bank of the river near Downtown Chattanooga for over 10 miles. The pathways extend from the bridge for State Highway 27 to the bridge for State Route 163. The riverwalk is a great place for a stroll to look at the boat traffic along the river.

The southwest end of the Tennessee Riverwalk is located along St. Elmo Avenue, to the north of W. 33rd Street. The trail heads north through industrial areas, then tucks under Interstate 24 to wander along the river's edge. The pathway wraps around parks and goes past museums and restaurants. There is also the Walnut Street Bridge that allows trail users to cross the river and has pretty views of the river and the Downtown Chattanooga skyline. A zig zag rampway that leads to the Hunter Museum of American Art.

The northeastern end of the Tennessee Riverwalk is located to the east of Chattanooga State Community College at the Tennessee Riverpark. This location is near the Chickamauga Dam and the Route 150 bridge.

South Chickamauga Creek Greenway

The South Chickamauga Creek Greenway is a compacted crushed limestone pathway system on the southeast side of Chattanooga. The greenway is open for walking, running and bike riding. The pathway system will eventually reach the Tennessee Riverwalk to create a 25-mile long horseshoe shape that will reach much of the city. Currently two sections are completed.

The 4.6-mile long northerly section intersects the Tennessee Riverwalk at a point adjacent to the Amnicola Highway and south of Lost Mound Road. From this point the trail heads to the east along Chicamauga Creek, crosses under Bonny Oaks Drive, then take a wide loop to come back to Faith Road off of Youngstown Road.

The southern section spans between the intersection of Shallowford Road and N. Moore Road and Camp Jordan Park. This 4-mile long section connects to the trails at Camp Jordan Park and then follows the greenspace along the creek that is adjacent to Chattanooga Airport. This section of the greenway goes past Brainerd High School and Brainerd Recreation Complex.
