Beautiful this week for us with fall colors in full bloom, lots of trees down between Edwards and signal point.. beyond Edwards we only saw a few people, mushroom rock is really cool. The campsite at suck creek was very large and could accommodate several groups. We were dropped off at signal and picked up at suck creek road the next morning. Made for a nice days hike with a 20lb pack

This section of trail is an excellent example of what this region and the Cumberland Trail as a whole offers. Multiple unobstructed views, stream crossings, geological features, and decent elevation changes.

Awesome views! Signal Point was my first, true hike... I'm hooked! I'm ready for my next trail!

we found this to be a bit harder than we thought but we're flatland erst from Orlando. Loved the overlook about .4 miles from the larger suspension bridge. Trail was pretty well marked. Even though the last .25 mile had some stairs, it was strenuous. Quite rocky but magnificent Vistas

There was one good view a half mile into the hike. Back tracked down on the trail. Not too much to see but we also did not do the full hike toward the waterfall. However, there was no running water on the trail where it looked to be one. Trail seem to not be as popular, little over grown. Also, found a total of 5 ticks on us after the 1-2 hour hike.

Great trail! Had a hard time finding the trailhead by the road, not well marked. Hiked past mushroom rock and about 6 miles to get a good view of the Tennessee River then turned around.

My cousin and I took an overnight trip here and hiked from Signal Mountain past Edward Poin and Suck Creek and finished at the game reserve road parking past Poplar Springs Campsite. There are some beautiful views here but the hike is rigorous - definitely a lot of elevation change. If you want a 24-25 mile trip, add in Mullens Cove Loop, and Pot Point Loop which I believe is about 12 additional miles.

It is a beautiful stretch of the Cumberland Trail from Signal Point Military park to Prentice Cooper State Forest. Be advised that it will be more than a 5 hour trip. From Signal Point you descend into a gorge and climb back to plateautop and shortly reach Edward's Point. Follow the gorge rim until you reach mushroom rock then descend to a creek with a 225 ft. suspension bridge. Ascend again only to descend once more to the hwy. 27 road crossing. After crossing a VERY busy highway climb away from Suck Creek and out of the gorge. The view from Lawson's Rock is a good one. Continue on the ridge side and through the forest to reach the trailhead in Prentice Cooper. Whew.

First hike with my then to be husband. Easy to moderate. Recommend Indian Rockhouse, and Snoopers Rock, has incredible view of the Tennessee River. Great place to take pics, and have a picnic. A little used trail to the right of Snoopers, yeilds some nice little waterfalls. Also, if into history, take a side trip into Lusk cemetery, on the left going toward Snoopers Rock.

This part of the Cumberland Trail goes through the Prentice Cooper State Forest. Within the PC State Forest there are off-roading trails for ATV's and 4wd vehicles, however the actual Cumberland Trail does not allow any off road vehicle or mountain bike use. Foot travel only on the Cumberland Trail.

I did not find this an easy trail. There is a lot of elevation, but the views are stunning!

Some good views, relatively easy for regular hikers.
