Great Eastern Trail

Currently under development, the Great Eastern Trail (GET) runs through Chattanooga using parts of the Cumberland Trail, North Chickamauga Creek Greenway, Tennessee Riverpark and Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park's Lookout Mountain trail system.

When complete, the GET will connect the Florida National Scenic Trail to the North Country National Scenic Trail in New York State, as well as making connections to the Benton MacKaye and Appalachian Trails.

Currently, long distance hikers can access nearby backcountry sections of the GET from downtown Chattanooga using temporary routes on city rights of way and greenways.

Chattanooga was designated a GET Trail Town in 2013.
