Another beautiful trail around the city, however it does require knowing where you are going a little bit and is primarily ATV roads out to the main flippers Bend Trail by the rim. It has a different beauty than many trails around the area, but it still has a lot to offer and I would recommend visiting if you’ve seen many others already around the area.

Not exactly a "hiking" trail or "lightly trafficked" as described. Maybe it started out that way - now it's just another of the many redneck trails on Signal. All rutted up from four-wheelers. Real mess - there's dozens of little offshoot trails that hikers have created to get around the pools left in the road and now the bikers have begun rutting them too. Wish there were more places on Signal to just walk. Wish that TDEC could afford some law enforcement.
