  Market Street Bridge from Coolidge Riverside Park
by Stephen-KarenConn
 
 

Erected in 1890, this old bridge once carried horse drawn carriages and wagons across the Tennessee River, later came cars and trucks, and today it is one of America's longest pedestrian bridges. It connects Downtown with North Chattanooga and the arts district. and also the riverfront parks on both shores. A dramatic underground passsageway to the river connects by a ramp to the bridge, and marks one beginning of the infamous Trail of Tears, a landmark of Cherokee history. The bridge and 12 miles of connecting walkways offer a wonderful place for families, outdoor lovers, and others to enjoy either a brisk walk or a leisurely stroll.

Directions: At the end of Market Street, Spanning the Tennessee River from Ross's Landing to North Chattanooga.
