All hikes are FREE but do require advance online registration as space is limited. Details about the classic hikes can be found below. Full hike details are given after confirmed registration. Unless otherwise noted, most hikes are beginner and family-friendly but do take place on remote, singletrack trails and rugged terrain. Beginner hikers will find it challenging but certainly attainable. Outdoor Chattanooga requires participants have some hiking experience and be in good physical shape to hike up to 4-miles continuously on sections rated as moderately strenuous. Participants under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or responsible adult. For more information click on the hikes below or call (423) 643-6888.
