Part of Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park, the Chickamauga Battlefield provides gently rolling, groomed trails that meander for several miles through woods, pasture lands and restored Civil War era homesteads.
The park’s system of paved roads post slow speed limits and are perfectly suited for cyclists and runners, especially Glen Kelley Road, which has a dedicated pedestrian and bicycle lane.
Maps and brochures offering self-guided interpretive tours are available at the Battlefield Visitors Center.
The well-marked, non-technical trail system is good for beginner trail riders and offers unique views of the Civil War battlefield. Horse trailers may park in a gravel lot on the western edge of the park on Dyer Rd. Before riding, please stop by the park’s Visitors Center for information and a trail map.
Chickamauga Battlefield offers several road cycling options for families and adults. The National Park’s self-guided Auto Tour runs over roads with speed limits of 20-35 mph. The 6-mile loop travels by beautifully restored monuments, wood, and pasture lands and contains multiple stops at historic points of interest.
Use other lightly trafficked park roads to lengthen rides to 12-14 miles. For a shorter, family-friendly ride, park at Wilder Tower and ride the Glen-Kelley Road bike path to Lafayette Rd. and back.
