we found this to be a bit harder than we thought but we're flatland erst from Orlando. Loved the overlook about .4 miles from the larger suspension bridge. Trail was pretty well marked. Even though the last .25 mile had some stairs, it was strenuous. Quite rocky but magnificent Vistas
Nice hike with multiple overlooks, a natural bridge, and a small gorge section. Moderately strenuous, but be prepared to bushwack around fallen trees and search for elusive blazes. The trail might be more visible in summer, but the winter views are hard to beat! This is in a Wildlife Management Area, and many weekends during hunting season the trails are closed for managed game hunts. Check the forest website before you go. Also the access road is unpaved, so depending on conditions you may want to park at the first Cumberland Trail parking lot instead of going all the way to the Snooper's Rock lot.
Parked at Cumberland trail parking lot. Trail head is accross the street. once at the indian rock village .7 miles away, go towards the right. Its not marked but that is the continuation of Snoopers trail. Great moderate trail. Well marked once on the trail. No water features as of mid october so mostly trees with autumn colors. Acouple of viewing spots along the way. Good place to meditate. Light traffic on a friday. There is hunting allowed so be weary of the dates. Not sure if hiking and hunting are allowed at the same time.
Great 10 mile loop with rock formations. Indian rockhouse is titanic of rock formations. Snoopers and Mullens cove both have panoramic views. Make sure you look at the trees for white blazes or you'll find yourself on a side trail.
Thank you Chattanooga, TN.
