North Chickamauga Creek

North Chickamauga Creek begins on the Cumberland Plateau, spilling Class IV/V whitewater down the ridge until it flattens in the Tennessee River valley.

When the creek reaches the community of Hixson, it becomes a perfect creek for families and beginners in any type of paddlecraft.

A perfect afternoon paddle is a 2.5 mile stretch of river that turns around a peninsula at the City of Chattanooga's Greenway Farm Park.

WARNING: Creek levels can fluctuate due to water releases from TVA's Chickamauga Dam on the Tennessee River. Be aware of release schedules before launching.
