The map is interactive. Use your mouse to zoom in or out as required.
The access points are labeled by their familiar names. Blue markers are Flatwater access points and red markers are Class I Water access points. Clicking on a location will display associated data including availability of restrooms, camping, power boat access, and whether you can expect Class I water on the section of the river from that access point. All ramps are within one hour of downtown Chattanooga unless noted in the details of the location.
DISCLAIMER: Locations depicted on this map provide access to a river but do not guarantee the river provides safe, unencumbered passage to a downstream access point. Paddlers should always check weather, be cognizant of recent rain accumulation or wind storm damage, and be prepared to portage around obstacles. It is also advisable to wear adequate seasonal clothing and appropriate footwear. Remember to carry appropriate safety gear for the intended paddle.
