You’ll discover how Chattanooga’s greenways and blueways are connected while experiencing two adventure sports in one day! Outdoor Chattanooga’s experienced guides will lead you on a leisurely paced 2.5-mile bike tour on the S. Chick Greenway to Sterchi Farm Park, where we shift gears and get in canoes to paddle 2-miles down the quiet calm creek back to our starting location. Prior to departure, you’ll receive basic biking and canoeing instruction, water safety information and be properly outfitted in a lifejacket and canoe.
Cost is $25 per person which includes guides throughout the duration of the tour, all equipment including a bike, helmet, tandem canoe, paddles, and lifejackets. The bikes will be transported by our trailer back to the start where your canoe trip ends. This canoe tour is appropriate for ages 8+ when accompanied by an adult. Youth, ages 8-12 are recommended to ride with 2 adults in a canoe unless they have prior canoe experience. Some prior canoeing/paddling experience is helpful but not required to participate in this tour. All participants must be able to confidently ride a bicycle to participate in this activity. (No training wheels please).
