Fort Oglethorpe, GA: Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park and Outdoor Chattanooga have extended their partnership to include free monthly guided bicycle rides/hikes at Moccasin Bend National Archeological District. The monthly bike rides/hikes for May and June will take place on Saturday, May 9 and Saturday, June 13 and will begin at 9 am.
The public is invited to bring their bicycles and join in this historical ride/hike, which will take approximately two hours. National Park Service interpretive rangers will lead the ride to the Brown’s Ferry Federal Road, where the 1.2-mile historical hike begins. Once the hike concludes, participants complete their experience by exploring other parts of Moccasin Bend by bike. Outdoor Chattanooga staff and volunteers will provide ride safety and support.
While participants are encouraged to bring their own bicycles, a limited number of loaner bicycles from the Outdoor Chattanooga Mobile Bicycle Fleet will be available for riders five feet tall and over at no charge, thanks to sponsorship from the Friends of Moccasin Bend and the Chattanooga Bicycle Club. Reservations for bicycles are required by calling Outdoor Chattanooga at 423-643-6888.
These tours begin at the Gateway Site parking area on Moccasin Bend, off Hamm Road. Please follow the special event signs for parking. The rides are appropriate for adults and children ages eight and older when accompanied by an adult. All participants are required to wear helmets.
