Cumberland Trail (Prentice Cooper State Forest Section)
by

42 Completed 36 Reviews

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.

Ruby Falls is inside a cave. The public entrance is atop Lookout Mountain. You ride an elevator down into the cave, and do a tour to the falls. We were there in 1990, and had to wait more than two hours to get into the elevator.

We hiked this trail as part of a loop from point psrk and back. Started out from Point Park via the Bluff Trail (which is beautiful) down past Sunset Rock and Covenant College down to the John smart trail then finally down to Skyuka Springs. b
Beautiful hardwood forest in full fall colors and sandstone cliffs are spectacular. Then we took the trail up to Gum Spring Trail. Gum Spring is 1 mile of of strsight up back to Bluff Trail. I do not recommend this trail unless you are looking for a serious cardio workout. You can get back to Point Park via Cravens House Trail (probably what we should have done). This was a strenuous loop as we covered 2283ft in elevation. This route went from the top of Lookout Mountain to the bottom and back to the top again (13.5 miles). Still was an awesome hike, if your looking for challenge then this is a great loop to try.

Hiking this with my 4 & 6 year old girls was a good time. They loved it. If we continue doing it I'm sure I'll be trail running just to keep up. ;)
