great view. easy for kids

Did this trail back in March, wonderful views and long enough for a great workout.

A great hike to do and the overlook spots had beautiful views.

Nice trail. The outlook views were great! The fire tower was neat and the old fort wall.

First - directions from coordinates take you to an apparent complex (alexadra way). Do not turn in there - go past about 50 yards and it’s a parking lot on left.
Hike- great, not too hard nor too easy. The view at the top is incredible. We went when minimal leaves were on trees which made the over looks along the way more enjoyable. At the top, have great view at river and area. Swing bridge was cool and there’s a waterfall that also is nice. If you wanted just to go to the waterfall and bridge it’s not even half way. The other is very clear and easy to traverse.
Once cross the bridge it gets more technical but easy to do without anything to carry (no water or food; unless you just want to).
I hiked w my daughter and we had a great time. Started about 1:30 and finished about 5. Took our time and took a lot of pictures. Great time to talk & be w nature.
Will do this again.

Lots of people! Great views! Wonderful waterfalls! Just. Go. Early. Or go on a weekday. Great gift shop for last minute forgotten items. Friendly staff!

So beautiful especially after all the rainfall we’ve had! It’s possible to take little ones down to the falls without risking ledges and high parts. But after that, the trail is sometimes only visible by blue paint mark on the trees. My four pre-k son did the whole thing but we helped him cross the streams and held his hand over rocks. Loved the suspension bridges and the fall foliage! There were lots of little creeks to cross on the back side and some rocky parts to the trail. We will be back!

Great trail with lots of beautiful views! Kind of busy, but we waited to go until the tower was open - very neat observation decks at the overlooks as well. Lots of history! Full trail review + more pics coming to our hiking blog soon - www.Wander-Full-Life.com

Did a night hike here with a couple of friends. Not a bad hike at all and super cool to see the view of Chattanooga at night. Bring a headlamp because the deer be trippin.

Pleasant trail. Many viewpoints along the canyon ridges. Expect heavy traffic on weekends...

Well-maintained and in the fall extra special with the changing of the leaves. We made it in time to venture up and inside the CCC fire tower and although it was foggy the view was nice.

Very good trail. 2.6 miles and worth the effort! Watch out for a lot of roots along g the path though. I'd give it a moderate rating.

Gorgeous!! The hike would be classed MODERATE as rated. Mainly because of the roots and rocks one has to navigate on virtually the whole trail. The views are incredible and we caught the Fall foliage just at the right time!! November 3rd was a perfect day for our hike. I recommend this to all my hiking friends.

Great little short hike. Leaves were turning nicely and the views were awesome. I've lived in this area my whole life and never tire of this beautiful place! To me it's easy, the other folks we were with thought it moderate.Any way you look at it, it's worth the jaunt. You'll be glad you did it!!

Beautiful and a good hike with some challenging parts! Crowded at the beginning/end. Do the waterfalls trail while you’re there!

Great overlooks. Beautiful fall colors Nov 4th. We got there about 1030 and not awful crowded but on the way out near the beginning of the trail lots of hikers just arriving. Glad we came on the earlier side! Took us a little over 2 hours. This trail has some ups/downs but a good deal of fairly level walking too. Definitely lots of roots and rocks.

Great hike. The view is amazing

Wow! Beauty all around but it was definitely a Moderate hike. So many rocks and roots to navigate along the way but worth it. Just have to take your time. The water, rock formations and multiple lookouts were spectacular. Leaves were peak so lots of people. Go early and you might get some peaceful moments!

Tough to beat!

Great trail! Even in the snow!

Nice surprise! Convenient!

No parking and really crowded

With the leaves changing and cool fall air, this was an amazing hike just 10 minutes away!

good trail, some great views , cool suspension bridges. lots of downed trees, slipoery moss rock, roots, list the trail at one point, and had yo do some bushwacking
