Greenway farm is a large wooded park in Hixson, a part of Chattanooga north of the Tennessee River. It includes a dog park, walking trails, two canoe launches, fishing access, Chickamauga Quarry and a building available for meetings by Reservation, (423) 643-6311. Further information is available at:
Here is my story of a recent visit:
The old cabin and the garden provided numerous photographic opportunities. I visited the canoe launch which provides creek access, Like the river, the creek was running high and muddy.
The old quarry proved very photogenic, with blue-green water and vertical rock faces. Sneezeweed (Helenium sp.) was prevalent along the path.
I remember finding some interesting Paleozoic fossils here in past years, primarily Crinoids, Bryozoans, and Brachiopods. I would imagine that it is well picked over by now.
