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.

Favorite hike in Chattanooga. Fun trail; great views at the top on the rocks. Wasn’t too crowded and leaves are beautiful in November.

Nice and easy hike!

Fun little hike with kids.

Great trail! Gorgeous day and although it got pretty warm, you didn’t notice in the shade of the trails. Sunset Rock was amazing! I could have sat there forever!

If you have weak legs, bad knees, hips or ankles, you might want to the whole loop. Perhaps to Sunset Rock and directly back. This has some strenuous spots on the loop especially Gum Springs and Rifle Pits. Gum Trail and Rife Pits had quite a bit of overgrowth making it narrow although the path was clear.

Suggestions: good comfortable hiking shoes, water and a walking stick or walking poles.

So fun for the whole family!!

Beautiful trail, great for a moderate workout

hard to find and more than we expected but great views

Very fun to walk with the entire family. My kids are 8, 6, and 3. Great views. The waterfall was super cool!

Awesome view at the top.

The trail is being frequented more often and parts are definitely eroding. Could use updated markers for people that are unfamiliar with the route. Worth it for the views and good workout with ups and downs.

Tons of shade! May get a little crowded in the summer because of the tourist location.

Nice and easy hike also for kids

This was my first hiking experience in years, and I truly enjoyed it! I have bad knees, but I was still able to navigate well. The view was beautiful! We will be back here again, but later in the day to see the actual sunset.

Gorgeous in the fall. Not too difficult for anyone able-bodied

Easy hike with a nice little uphill trek returning to the car. Falls and cascades are pretty and the trail passes through a large rock. Fun!

This trail is gorgeous!! Pretty easy, since it's mostly flat. I hiked it on a foggy day so most of the views were hidden, but the rocks were still incredible to walk beside.

Great for small kids. Our 3.5 yo did great. We hiked in and saw the falls, went up the stairs and through a cool cave like structure and then hiked up the riverbed a bit and found a place to eat our lunch we packed. Really fun and short hike.

One of my favorite trails on the mountain, especially if you are looking for a quick round-trip hike with a waterfall.

Great hike with great views. The trail could be a little better marked especially after the first overlook. The suspension bridge was a highlight along with the overlooks. Great hike to do in winter before trees get leaves.

Awesome overlooks

This is a short hike with hills, interesting rock formation you walk through. The water falls at the top are beautiful. A great short hike.

Great trail. My wife loved it. We had fun and great views.

Defiantly on my top ten list!

Nice hike, really nice falls, but the end of the trail dumps you onto the highway, a long and very dangerous trek back to the trailhead and my car. By God's grace a very nice gentleman stopped and offered me a ride to my car.

Great trail, short 1/2 mile to the waterfalls area with lots of pools and rocks. Took a group of kids there and they loved it, climbing all over the rock formations and playing around the stream for several hours.

first time on this trail. Very nice view of the valley and skyline. Trail is pretty easy. Started and finished at Sunset Rock. Access to SR is a bit more tough with lots of stone steps to be aware of footing.
