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.

Amazingly fun. Easy trail in. There is a small cave by falls that takes you up the river. This trail is on a slow car pull off near rock city on two lane mountain road, so can be tricky to find, but well worth it. Also trail is a tad steeper on way out. Not bad just fyi.

My family and I hiked from point park to sunset rock via bluff trail. My youngest whom is 4 years old, did very well for his first time. My wife and daughter had fun leading the way. My son and I were just concentrating on getting him down the trail. It was all worth it when we saw the view at Sunset Rock. We hiked back to the car using the roadway. All in all a great trail and great day.

Varied conditions with a few challenges. The suspension bridge at Rainbow Lake is a treat. The view down the Tennessee River gorge from Palmer Point affords excellent views including Signal and Lookout Mountains.

This was an amazing hike on my visit to Chattanooga. Highly recommend to keep hiking to the top of the mountain....great site seeing, monuments, and of course the awesome view of all of Chattanooga! *Just remember where you parked sadly there were two people who got lost and forgot where they came since there is multiple trails.
