Celebrate trails at Camp Jordan

A celebration of National Trail Day is set for Saturday at Camp Jordan Park, sponsored by East Ridge Parks and Recreation, Chattanooga and Outdoor Chattanooga.

Outdoor Chattanooga will host canoe rides for $10 per person from 1-4 p.m. and free use of bicycles for those who want to borrow a bike to ride the Camp Jordan Loop and/or the Brainerd Levee. Reservations are required for canoes.

Canoeists from around the region are invited to come thank the volunteers who cleaned up extensive logjams to open the Camp Jordan Canoe Trail on South Chickamauga Creek.

East Ridge Parks and Recreation Director Stump Martin said the south creek launch has been completed from funding provided by the Lyndhurst Foundation. Tower Construction is working on the north Cherokee Launch at Camp Jordan for opening sometime this summer.

A litter pick-up along the creek will begin at 11 a.m.

The deadline for canoe reservations is Wednesday. Call Jim Ledbetter at 423-322-3691 or email
