Lookout Creek meanders below the western face of Lookout Mountain, spilling into the Tennessee River near the toe of Moccasin Bend. It is a part of the Tennessee River Blueway system.
Though sections of the creek are navigable from Trenton, Georgia to Chattanooga, the most accessible part is a 2.5-mile section between the Tennessee River and Reflection Riding Arboretum and Nature Center.
Paddlers can access the creek via launches on the Tennessee River, Browns Ferry Marina, or launch at the Nature Center (fees apply).
Water levels on Lookout Creek can fluctuate due to discharge from Chickamauga Dam on the Tennessee River. Check Tennessee Valley Authority lake levels and release schedule before you go.
