South Chickamauga Creek Greenway (Family)
The South Chickamauga Creek Greenway is a multi use trail and boardwalk that runs parallel to the South Chickamauga Creek as it winds its way through Chattanooga.
The newest section, know as the connector trail, connects the Tennessee Riverwalk to the completed section of the Greenway that extends from N. Hawthorne St. past Sterchi Farm Park to Faith Rd. The connector trail can be accessed at the Riverpoint parking area on the Tennessee Riverwalk.
