North Chickamauga Creek

North Chickamauga Creek begins on the Cumberland Plateau, spilling Class IV/V whitewater down the ridge until it flattens in the Tennessee River valley.

When the creek reaches the community of Hixson, it becomes a perfect creek for families and beginners in any type of paddlecraft.

A perfect afternoon paddle is a 2.5 mile stretch of river that turns around a peninsula at the City of Chattanooga’s Greenway Farm Park.


Creek levels can fluctuate due to water releases from TVA’s Chickamauga Dam on the Tennessee River. Be aware of release schedules before launching.
