I drove to the Tennessee Riverpark to hike with SD TTA. McBob was our leader for the morning, with 10 hikers. I had never walked the along the river downtown. We met at the parking area by the Boathouse Restaurant and Raw Bar.
It's a pretty walk, we passed a marshy area where we saw green heron and a crane. We passed the bluff view art district and walked across the Walnut Street Bridge, down to a new coffee shop and then back the way we came. Lunch was at the Boathouse and it was good. We sat on the terrace overlooking the river. I had ginger chicken salad on a bed of lettuce, mmmmm, and enough left over for supper too.
We only did about half of the river walk. It starts at the Chickamauga Dam, about a 10 mile walkway, open to bikes too.
