South Chickamauga Creek Greenway

Since 1994, The Trust for Public Land has worked with the City of Chattanooga, acquiring land and easements to create a large system of parks and greenways. In the south, a section winds along the creek corridor from Camp Jordan northward to the Tennessee River. With paved paths and boardwalks that overlook the forested creek bank, this scenic trail is perfect for walking, biking and enjoying nature close to home. Conveniently located trailheads provide parking and easy access, with boat ramps that make it easy to slip a canoe or kayak right into the water.

We are working to connect the last missing segments that will complete the full 14-mile Greenway and connect with the Riverwalk, including fundraising for a 190-foot bridge, an integral part of the connection between the South Chickamauga Creek Greenway and the Tennessee Riverwalk. The bridge was put into place in November 2015, one more step towards connecting more Chattanoogans to parks and green spaces..
