A remote gorge or a backyard paddle
The North Chickamauga Creek watershed’s unique beauty and diversity set it apart as a regional attraction. Avid hikers and kayakers explore the more remote upper reaches of the gorge, while residents of Chattanooga enjoy leisurely paddles on the lower reaches of the creek around Greenway Farms. Novice kayakers hone their skills on the Bowling Alley section of whitewater off of Montlake Road, and day hikers enjoy a swim in the blue hole just upstream. The North Chickamauga Creek watershed is also one of the most biodiverse natural areas in the region, providing a key protected space for critically important flora and fauna.
