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.

We had a great time on this trail! It can however be very confusing. Luckily I found a website that walked us through the whole thing with pictures and all. I would recommend sticking to it to a T if you don't want to get lost. Here's the link.

Great views, you can access the trail-head from the top and you will immediately be at the overlook. However, i'm sure the trail-head starts at the bottom of this mountain, so it all depends on whether you want to see a view or have a 3 mile hike to a rewarding view.

Have hiked this trail many times now and always enjoy it.

This is one of my favorite trails when in Chattanooga. The view really great and the hike to the top is a medium level hike.

Short hike to a great view. Perfect for sunset-viewing.

Glen Falls was a great, short hike with an incredible reward at the end! We took our 6 and 4 year olds and they did great on the trail, I definitely recommend it for kids! Once you get to the first water fall, stop and take in the beauty and then head on down the trail a bit. Take the rock stairs up through the rock pass through for some more water and a cascading waterfall. The parking is just a pull off so there isn't much room. I would recommend trying to go when there might not be as much traffic so you are more likely to get a parking space!

Good morning hike. Great for families and easy to follow the trail.

I loved this short hike! Parking was a bit of an issue as the lot is just a turn out on a mountain road! The hike itself was fantastic! The path is well kept and easy to find. There are lots of big rocks for climbing on. There is a small pool my kids were wading in. And a fun rock staircase that leads through a rock tunnel. Lots of great paths and rocks to explore!
