Rich in history
Black Creek, a home to humans for 1000s of years. A perfect topography in the upland valley between Raccoon and Lookout Mountains with abundant wildlife, water, and wide open spaces. Close to the fertile Tennessee River but high enough above any floods. During the Civil War this valley was the ideal bivouac for the US Army prior to its assault on Lookout Mountain. Later on, Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt stopped here on their way to Georgia, to treat the President’s polio symptoms.
Now, Black Creek is home to many, across 3000 acres, spread from valley to mountain sides. Six miles of hillside panorama looking into downtown Chattanooga and out to the fertile valley west of Lookout Mountain.
Chattanooga, “America’s Best Town Ever” according to Outside magazine, is centrally located a couple hours drive from Atlanta, Nashville, Birmingham, and Knoxville. ‘Chatty’ offers loads of outdoor activities and stunning scenery.
Along the Tennessee River and its tributaries, enjoy miles of paved bicycle & pedestrian trails, and extensive and maintained mountain bike trails, too. Also, outstanding rock climbing, world class hang gliding, excellent bass and trout fishing, hiking and picnicking on thousands of acres of US Park Service and privately conserved lands.
