This trail follows the Cumberland Trail in Prentice Cooper Wildlife Management Area just outside of Chattanooga, TN. The trail is mostly shaded taking you along a route following the natural terrain features from Indian Rockhouse to Snooper's Rock with a couple of small water crossings and numerous rock formations. At Snooper's Rock, you will be treated to one of the best views of the Tennessee River Gorge. This is a peaceful walk in the woods with a few short climbs.
The Vistas are spectacular and this is a well marked trail. Not much traffic
Awesome trail! It is so well marked, which is really helpful during fall/winter, as the trail can become unclear due to leaves. The view is one of a kind.
Great trail with multiple beautiful overlooks of the river!
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.
Snoopers rock has a panoramic view that is a must see. Great for nature walking, bring your dogs, pack a lunch bc you will want to hangout for awhile. Be very careful and watchful if you bring your little kids.
Thank you Chattanooga, TN.
Beautiful scenery with a breathtaking view
Little bit of a drive down the gravel road in prentice cooper park but a short walk down road to trail head which wasn't hard and a good view.
Great Hike on awesome day. Out and back to snoopers w Hannah!! Great view!
