This is located in downtown Chattanooga, TN. Park near the art museum if you don't want to walk far to get to this bridge. This particular bridge does not allow cars. You can safely walk/bike across. It's free and a neat feature to this area. There is a place to rent bikes and get ice cream and near by restaurants... More

As a local, this place is used for walkers, runners, romance, deep thinkers. Everything. It runs over the Tennessee river which is beautiful. And you can walk to Coolidge park. And that's great too, but that's a whole other review.

This is a really, lovely bridge to walk on as well as take in it's surrounding beauty including the wonderful Tennessee river. It doesn't cost anything and can be enjoyed by all.

This is a great place to walk or run. It can appear a little unsafe after 10 pm. The views at sunset are very nice. There are nice shops on both sides of the bridge to eat or to get a snack.

The pedestrian only Walnut Bridge spanning the Tennessee river in Chattanooga is such a great venue for pedestrians and bicyclists. Connecting two great walking paths and offering superb river views, the skyline of Chattanooga and Lookout Mountain in the background, Walnut Bridge is a photographers dream. I have had the opportunity to walk the bridge in both daytime and nighttime... More

The longest foot bridge in the US. Lots of opportunity for running, cycling, walking. Offers many nice views of Chattanooga and the river.

Loved strolling across this pedestrian bridge. The views of the river, etc, are terrific. In summer go in the morning before it gets too hot out. We plan to go back to see the Fall color in the surrounding wooded hills.

Come to the Walnut street bridge to walk and see people while enjoying the beauty of the Tennessee River. This may well be the longest pedestrian bridge in America. The bridge itself is very old and beautiful. Parks and a museum are at either end of the bridge. There are benches to sit and plaques to read about the local... More
