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.

The view a couple miles in is awesome but after that it’s a pretty boring hike and the trail is not marked very well.

Awesome hike at daybreak. Clouds were in the valley this morning and it was magic

Print out a map, take a pic at the trailhead with your phone, or keep the instructions close by. Great loop, but cutting across so many trails can be tricky! We got confused around Sunset Rock when looping for Cravens trail on the way back, but a local got us straightened out. Speaking of Sunset, views are amazing. Not a hard trail, per se, except the 6/10 mile on Gum Trail - straight uphill. Enjoy this great trail. Make sure you drive around at the top - nice homes to look at, if that’s your thing.

I loved this hike. Wasn't very hard, leads to a PHENOMENAL view overseeing the Tennessee river and surrounding area. Lots of cool historical information pertaining to the civil war available as well at the top.

Nice short trail but hard to find it's right off the main road up to Rock City so look carefully and drive slow I passed it so has to turn around. It's a nice waterfall and was a good stop while I was on the road.

it's a short - less than 1/2 mile trip to the falls. Make sure you go over the bridge and climb the stairs and go thru the Rock entrance
water was very low today. We would love to do it again after a nice rain.

Incorrectly labeled as easy. This trail is at least moderate difficulty. Fabulous views of Chattanooga and the surrounding landscape. Steep at times and rocky throughout.

Perfect before/after work trail run loop.
