Recreation to inspire conservation and health

Spending time outside is proven to boost overall mental and physical health, and our goal is to help people get outside to further or to develop a relationship with wild places. We work to introduce people to local natural areas so they understand the need to maintain and improve access for future generations.

We’re committed to donating one dollar from every booking to our local nonprofit partners, who support land and water conservation, and bring outdoor engagement opportunities to underserved communities in and around Chattanooga.

We believe that people who love our landscapes will want to protect them, which is why we’re on a mission to get as many people outside as possible.

Bike Rentals

Updated rental hours are 10am-6pm Monday through Saturday, and 1pm 6pm on Sundays at our Riverside Drive location.

If you live in Chattanooga or have heard that National Geographic Adventure called it one of the “Best Adventure Towns in the US to Live & Play,” then you probably already know that there are:

- over 100 miles of singletrack mountain bike trails within 15 minutes
- 54 trailheads within 25 minutes
- More than 70 miles of paddle-ready blue ways within 25 minutes of downtown

With this kind of proximity and renowned quality all you need is the right gear and you’ll be set for some epic experiences. This is where we come in. Rock/Creek Rentals gives you access to top-of-the-line outdoor gear that you can take on all your Chattanooga adventures.
