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 trail is definitely a moderate hike. I enjoyed every bit of it; furthermore, I believe that the view is well worth the trek. It may seem to take a long time, but once you get to Edward's Point you will for get about the climb.

In the words of the positive country artist Scott Brown...

"It ain't easy in the valley,
but it makes the mountain sweet.
You can see a new tomorrow
from the mountain peak.
Though the climb is rough and rugged
you will face a brighter day,
'cause you know the mountaintop
is not far away."
