What we're about

There are 54 trail heads within 30 minutes of downtown Chattanooga leading to hundreds of miles of trails and 77 miles of flat water creeks to paddle, not including the Tennessee river. Without compare, Chattanooga is outdoor city USA. Our runs/hikes and paddle trips are generally 5 to 10 miles in length, with weekend adventures going longer. Some of us are really slow, some of us fast and some of us race. All speeds are welcome. Come meet other local trail runners hikers and paddlers, discover our amazing trails and waterways. Get out in nature, get fit and have fun.

South Chick Sunrise Paddle

River Point park

Sunrise paddle trip on the South Chickamauga creek from the River Point up the creek as far as you like and back. This is NOT a guided paddle trip but there is no need. There is usually not current and no wind and unless there was some crazy storm, there is no debris. The point here is to enjoy perhaps the best sunrise in town and to find others around your pace that you can paddle with. What some of us like to do is do somewhat of a social paddle trip up stream and push it coming back. There is always plenty of light to paddle 1/2 hour before sunrise (civil sunrise). Hope to see you all there.
