Should you wish to know more about the South Chickamauga Creek Greenway trail, here you go! The entire trail is a total of 12 miles from the Lost Mound Drive/ TN Riverpark continuing to Camp Jordan of Eastridge. It follows alongside the wooded Chickamauga Creek winding through a mix of landscapes, including parks, commercial areas, and residential neighborhoods of East Chattanooga.
In addition to the boardwalks, a highlight along this section occurs near Sterchi Farm, a City of Chattanooga public park. In this area, you’ll find elevated boardwalks over wetlands with steep inclines along the creek. You’ll also find a canoe and kayak launch here as well as environmental artist Adam Kuby’s installation Clamber-Scramble-Traverse. This nature-based adventure trail encourages kids and families to climb, jump, explore, and play alongside the creek. Further down the trail, another highlight are the wetlands and the trail traversing the Brainerd Levy. Come ride with us.
