Death Knell of the Confederacy In 1863, Union and Confederate forces fought for control of Chattanooga, known as the "Gateway to the Deep South." The Confederates were victorious at nearby Chickamauga in September. However, renewed fighting in Chattanooga that November provided Union troops victory and control of the city. After the fighting, a Confederate soldier ominously wrote, "This...is the death-knell of the Confederacy." Park closed at sunset.

Sweet spot

nice little trail, very nice view.

fairly easy hike with great views of moccasin bend. great for inexperienced hikers, with high pay off for effort.

Super easy trail! Amazing view.

Nice short well marked hike. Only about 4-5 parking spaces available on the side of the road. About .5 miles to the falls.

This is a trail less traveled therefore will never be perfectly groomed. However there are local folks who keep this trail very well maintained. If you do this loop allow yourself plenty of time and when heading back up pacer self and just put 1 foot in front of the other.

Great views!

Nicely maintained trails.

Loved it! Great hike for a late fall afternoon. Great mountain scenery. The Guild Trail turns into the Upper Truck, which is wide and easy. Then you go down hill and start the Skyuka, which is a little harder. I would recommend starting the hike at the west end of the Ruby Falls parking area instead of Ochs Hwy.
