Day hikers of all levels will enjoy the trails, including the ADA-accessible Blue Heron Boardwalk, which takes visitors through the heart of the center's seasonal wetlands and along the edge of Lookout Creek. CA&NC trails also connect to the 40+ mile trail system in Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park.
