In Chattanooga there is a 9-mile paved trail (one way) that runs from downtown Chattanooga (at Ross's Landing) to the Chickamauga Dam in Hixson. This trail is a part of the Tennessee Riverpark (known as the Riverwalk to locals).
Daniel had the day off on Monday, so we took advantage of the beautiful day by going downtown to bike part of the Riverwalk. We parked at Ross's Landing and then made our way across the Walnut Street Bridge to Coolidge Park in North Shore.
After Coolidge Park, we came back across the bridge and biked over the glass bridge to the Art Museum...
and then through the Bluff View Art District before proceeding down to Battery Park. We made our turn around before reaching the Rowing Center.
It was a lovely ride and Jack had a blast (he likes to go fast). Jack hung in through the first half of our ride, but passed out in his chair on the way back. Poor guy, his parents need to do a better job of not planning outings during nap time.
We look forward to biking the entire trail, but next time I think that we will probably start at the Chickamauga dam.
Our route – We completed 5.5 miles on this particular ride.
