Spectacular views. Definitely a "Moderate" hike, and not an "Easy" hike, after a mile you will cross an amazing stream.

I had a great time on this trail. I would agree some of the trail is no longer 'easy'. Upgrade to 'moderate' and it should be just what you're looking for. Great views, cross a few streams, a few hand over foot areas with some climbing but nothing major. A great day hike!

Well-marked moderate difficulty trail with great views and light traffic the morning after a heavy rain. Nonetheless, the trail is in dangerous disrepair just below Signal Point. There are many signs of overuse and misuse along with plentiful graffiti. The trail just below signal point should really be closed until repairs can be accomplished.

This trail is the Panama Beach of Chattanooga area hiking trails. If you love dodging groups of 10 plus hikers and church kid groups blasting Bluetooth speakers and generally screwing up any chance you thought you'd have of a relaxing hike, then go. Go for the view from the parking lot then turn around and leave. Unless you go on a weekday or some time no one wants to be out, avoid it. Not for real hikers, this is for loud people who think they are hikers, but really are just as loud outdoors as they are in a crowded bar. Never again.

We took our 4 and 9 year old on this trail today with the 9 year old and my husband carrying hiking backpacks. The 4 year old had to hold a grown-up's hand for safety a fair portion of the time, but she still loved it and we had a great time! I posted some of our photos from the hike so you can get a better idea of what this trail involves. We went all the way to the Julia Falls overlook and it took 2-3 hours at an easy pace, stopping to climb some boulders and making a couple wild goose chase detours :)
