Beautiful hike that you can reach from multiple starting points! Rainbow lake entrance or signal point. Signal point is much steeper... rainbow lake side is an easier options for kids etc.

This was my first hiking trail outing in Chattanooga. This was a great starting trail, because of its moderate difficulty. It was just long enough (6ish miles) and never got too strenuous. There are definitely some places where hand and foot are required, but nothing too crazy. Rainbow lake is about halfway through, which was a refreshing break, and provided a perfect place for a picnic. We will definitely return to do Mushroom rock, which is continued after Edwards Point ends.

Great trail, but parking can be rough. The hike was pretty moderate with a few tough hills, but nothing too hard. The trail ended up taking a little over 4 miles to the point round trip. Incredible view from the top though!

Great trail. Very well kept and marked clearly. The woods are beautiful and the point is breathtaking. Last time I went you could see eagles flying above. Great trail for dogs and experienced kids as well.

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.

When I lived in the area this trail was one of my most favorite treks... wire bridges and the "mouse trap" stairs. That view from the point tho- wow!
