Flat Water Paddling
The Tennessee River and it’s tributaries are central to the history and spirit of Chattanooga.
The Tennessee River Blueway system, including North, South and West Chickamauga Creeks and Lookout Creek, provide a lifetime of exploration by canoe, kayak or standup paddleboard.
Go a little further from town and the lakes and small streams in East Tennessee and North Georgia offer even more treasures.
For those without equipment Outdoor Chattanooga’s paddling programs offer a long, summer season of guided, group trips for beginners of all ages.
