By Water

The Tennessee River Gorge falls within the Tennessee River Blueway, a river trail formed by TVA in the 1930s that runs for 45 miles from Chickamauga Dam to Nickajack Dam. The best information for traveling on the Tennessee Blueway is located at Canoe Tennessee's website. 

Head over to Outdoor Chattanooga's website for tons of information on exploring the Gorge via water.

By Car (Pot Point):

(from downtown Chattanooga)

Approximate Travel Time: 1.5-2 hours

Take US-27 North over the Tennessee River and travel 1-2 miles to the Signal Mountain Road exit (US-127 North). Turn right toward Signal Mountain.  At the base of Signal Mountain, at the intersection of US-127 North and Highway 27 West, turn left onto Highway 27 (Suck Creek Road directly across the street from Subway). 

Travel exactly 4 miles on Suck Creek Road.  Immediately after you pass the bridge over Suck Creek, you will take the first left onto River Canyon Road (if you end up driving up the mountain rather than along the river, you’ve gone too far). Travel on this road for several windy miles (30-45 minutes depending on your pace) – always keeping the river on your left. 

After about 4 miles on River Canyon Road, you will come to the Trust's Pot Point Cabin on your left.  A parking area will be on your right.  Stop here to take in the view of the river from this beautiful spot or hike our self-guided nature trail (a 4.1 mile strenuous loop).  Hikers are welcome at any time, although fall through spring is the nicest time to hike the trail.  Be careful insects and wildlife during the summer months.

The Pot Point campsite is located approximately .6 mile from the Pot Point Nature trailhead at 17805 River Canyon Rd (says Mullins Cove RD on Google Maps). The campsite is AFTER the recent landslide where the road is one lane, and is marked by a wooden TRAIL sign on the left.

Please park on the road only to load and unload your camping supplies and park overnight at the Pot Point Nature trailhead gravel parking lot. It is a 15-minute walk back to the campsite on the trail or the road.
