Did You Know?

Trails and greenways provide so much more than a recreational benefit for the occasional jogger and cyclist. Trail networks provide important environmental, economic, social, and health benefits for individuals, communities, and regions as a whole. The Chattanooga region has over 100 miles of hiking and mountain biking trails within 15 miles of downtown and over 20 miles of paved pathways throughout the city limits, including the Tennessee Riverwalk and South Chickamauga Creek Greenway. Our Mountain to Town downhill bike Adventure aims to highlight the connectivity of these trail systems while providing recreational opportunities for the community and showcasing Chattanooga’s natural resources for future protection and conservation.
