Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Enjoy a slice of Chattanooga’s nationally renowned greenway—Riverwalk. Start on its eastern end, just below Chickamauga Dam, and walk amid landscaped grounds overlooking the mighty Tennessee River. Along the way, pass through a large greenspace enhanced with outdoor art. Make a little loop through Fishing Park, with its numerous angling piers extending into the water, before returning to Chickamauga Dam.

Chattanooga’s Riverwalk is a nationally acclaimed model not only as an exercise and hiking destination but also as a way to enhance river frontage and gather the community. Its actual name is Tennessee Riverpark, but the term Riverwalk has superseded the original in common nomenclature. In the early 1980s the idea was born to build a linear preserve along the Tennessee River extending from Chickamauga Dam to Lookout Mountain. The original plan was unveiled in 1985. Citizens and government personnel all realized the creation of the Riverwalk would come in stages, just as the building of the Appalachian Trail was a section-by-section endeavor."
