This really is an out and back that you can do in like an hour. Now if you climb up the rocks around the falls, it turns a little more challenging, but also a little bit dangerous! Climb with caution.

Suck Creek Road to Mushroom Rock

The first hike up was a little steep, but the middle section was a wonderful, brisk walk. After the swinging bridge you're in for a serious incline up a rocky path. Push yourself to make it to the top and you'll get to see the awesome geological feature that is mushroom rock. I would recommend some trekking poles for the trip down that rocky incline, ESPECIALLY if its been raining.

My cousin and I took an overnight trip here and hiked from Signal Mountain past Edward Poin and Suck Creek and finished at the game reserve road parking past Poplar Springs Campsite. There are some beautiful views here but the hike is rigorous - definitely a lot of elevation change. If you want a 24-25 mile trip, add in Mullens Cove Loop, and Pot Point Loop which I believe is about 12 additional miles.

Fun, fast, roller coaster trails! Swing by for a quick loop or two anytime- it's so convenient 10 min from town. Many paths to choose from, or connect several. Trails are well maintained. Just check the signs for Biker vs Running directions. Bikers and runners to go opposite directions (which reverse every other day).

Fun trail. Short and technical. Super steep gains and losses that keep your legs burning. Mushroom rock looks..like a mushroom. Neature. Once you get up towards the rock you can continue along the Cumberland Trail if you're looking for a little more mileage.

This was a great trail! I ran it about 4 weeks ago. Only cons were tons of spiderwebs and there were several areas I had to bushwhack through, which is probably what you get for running it in June. Started across the street from Parking and followed the trailhead to Indian Rockhouse first. It was moderately flat with some mild gains and falls, so in all it was a pretty mellow trail. Super fun and many beautiful views on the first half (snoopers, mullins cove, and a few others). Only part that gave me trouble was the transition across Haley Rd at 6.7 mi. The trailhead on the other side was really hard to see and I ran up and down the road indecisively for awhile until I finally found it. So stick to your guns and keep a close eye, you should do fine. Aside from that pretty straightforward. I can't wait to do this one again!
