North Chickamauga Creek
North Chickamauga Creek begins on the Cumberland Plateau, spilling Class IV/V whitewater down the ridge until it flattens in the Tennessee River valley.
When the creek reaches the community of Hixson, it becomes a perfect creek for families and beginners in any type of paddlecraft.
A perfect afternoon paddle is a 2.5 mile stretch of river that turns around a peninsula at the City of Chattanooga's Greenway Farm Park.
WARNING: Creek levels can fluctuate due to water releases from TVA's Chickamauga Dam on the Tennessee River. Be aware of release schedules before launching.
