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.
Very overgrown for the first mile. At least 5 large trees down you have to crawl over or under as well as poison ivy and thorny vines across the trail. While there are trial signs, a few are broken and it can be hard to tell which way to go; bear left at the first large brown sign to stay on skyuka.
It is an absolutely beautiful trail, just a little tricky to navigate. There is also only parking for one vehicle at the trailhead, but you can park at the bottom of the hill and catch a ride up with a friend if you need more parking.
This trail is great! It has a continuously variable uphill slant; however, I was OK a part from burning calves.
Toward the latter half of the trail you gain glimpses of the land. It is an absolutely wonderful trek that truly rewards those that persist and endure the climb.
There was one good view a half mile into the hike. Back tracked down on the trail. Not too much to see but we also did not do the full hike toward the waterfall. However, there was no running water on the trail where it looked to be one. Trail seem to not be as popular, little over grown. Also, found a total of 5 ticks on us after the 1-2 hour hike.
