Tennessee - North Chick Blue Hole

This GWH TN hike will be hosted by TN Ambassador Victoria Godwin (cell 423-314-5158). We will be hiking and swimming at the North Chick Blue Hole in Soddy Daisy for a classic Chattanooga summer experience! The trail is fairly easy although it does involve a creek crossing. There are numerous smaller blue holes along the way to the largest one with boulders for cliff jumping and/or sunbathing. Unfortunately, this area has a litter problem, so I'll bring some grocery bags so that we can help "pack things out" on the way back.

Where: North Chickamauga Creek "Blue Hole". 

Directions: From downtown Chattanooga, take 27-N towards Soddy Daisy. Take the Thrasher Pike exit, and turn left onto Thrasher Pike. After about 1 mile, turn right onto Dayton Pike. Stay on Dayton Pike for 0.7 miles then turn left onto Montlake Road. The trailhead is just before the switchbacks on the left side of the road.

Date: Saturday, August 18th, 2018

Time: Meet at 10:45 am EST, we will start walking by 11:00 am to hopefully beat some of the crowds.

Distance: ~1.5ish miles

GWH Trail Rating: Green.

Dogs: No
Kids: Yes, but ONLY if strong swimmers!!! Must sign waiver for them as well. 
Men: No

While this is a short hike, Chattanooga weather can be brutal in August so I recommend bringing at least 1 liter of water along with a swimsuit and/or a change of clothes.

***As with all GWH events, you must sign the GWH waiver before attending – it takes less than a minute to sign, and once you’ve signed it once you’re good to go for all future meetups***

Later Event: August 19
