Followed the directions for this trail but it took us to Blue Blazes Trail? Blue Blazes was great, short. Hoping to find Bluff Trail next time.

With several miles of trails to choose from, there is something from the beginner to the more experienced.

We took the strut trail up from the parking area. It was a very easy trail with some decent views. There were some residences off to the sides that took away from the trail in my opinion. We branched off onto the Cherokee trail from there to check out Downtown Chattanooga from the observation deck -- AMAZING VIEW-- We went back down via the Hill City trail, which was a bit more difficult with several hills and winding turns.

Overall, we loved these trails. Be mindful of the posted signs. The trails are open for foot traffic on certain days, and bicycle traffic on others. We did have bikes on the walking trails also, so not everyone pays attention.

Hard to find is an understatement, but we finally did. Beautiful hike today! I am sure I'll feel it tomorrow. My daughter came with me with her daughter in a backpack. She did very well. Can't wait to bring my husband! The trail is a little rocky in places, but otherwise is in great shape. Thank you to the person who put the rocks in the mud to make that small section passable.

Cumberland Trail (Prentice Cooper State Forest Section)
by

It is a beautiful stretch of the Cumberland Trail from Signal Point Military park to Prentice Cooper State Forest. Be advised that it will be more than a 5 hour trip. From Signal Point you descend into a gorge and climb back to plateautop and shortly reach Edward's Point. Follow the gorge rim until you reach mushroom rock then descend to a creek with a 225 ft. suspension bridge. Ascend again only to descend once more to the hwy. 27 road crossing. After crossing a VERY busy highway climb away from Suck Creek and out of the gorge. The view from Lawson's Rock is a good one. Continue on the ridge side and through the forest to reach the trailhead in Prentice Cooper. Whew.

My family and I love this trail!!! It's a quick out and back if you rush, but it's more enjoyable to take your time. Pack a small snack, and if the water is low(er) you can step out on one of the bigger flat top boulders, sit in the sun, and have a nice little picnic. Can sometimes be crowded, but that's what you deal with for being so close to civilization. The pull-off is a little tricky, I almost always miss it even tho we have been there 6+ times. Highly recommended.

an in and out hike with so many other great hikes nearby this is an easy recommendation! try to fit this one in with a few others to boost the intensity and experience! also the trail head starts along a pull off of the ochs hwy. just (uphill) of sanders rd. altogether very nice! sunset rock may be and excellent pairing if you dont have much time but want to see a few things in one trip.
