“Easy loop run near downtown Chattanooga.”— Kate Miller
This loop is multi-use for pedestrians and mountain bikers. Bikers and pedestrians generally travel in opposite directions, directional signs are posted at the start of each trail. The direction changes by day of week.
The trail is very easy to follow, there are two main intersections, the first on Double J and Gig City, the second at Gig City and Hill City. Cherokee Trail is a brown blaze that cuts between these trails and is crossed at each intersection. There are a few climbs with switchbacks and blind corners for bikers. Nice plateaus between the uphill sections. The trail is mainly shaded with a few pockets of sun.
