I made this a Loop by going back by the bluff trail (where it forks off the cravens house) up to point park, and then down the incline trail (which isn’t maintained, but is perfectly functional).

Great views on this moderately trafficked trail from Point Park to Sunset rock. Wet and a bit slippery after rain or snow when at the stone stairs near sunset rock, but otherwise an easy walking trail. Metal steps near Point Park need a touch of care. Lots of history markers to read if you have interest. Quaint picturesque

The hike can be tough but it's rewarding once you make it to the top. Go have some fun!

Good little trail. A little difficult to find the beginning, look for the Ochs Museum, and it branches off from there.

Incorrectly labeled as easy. This trail is at least moderate difficulty. Fabulous views of Chattanooga and the surrounding landscape. Steep at times and rocky throughout.

very short but steep hike from parking lot. Gorgeous view. There is NO fencing or gates, etc to keep you from falling off cliff/bluff so you have to use common sense and be very careful. People have fallen to their deaths on this site. That said, it is stunningly beautiful and the views are panoramic....

Good trail but I would rate it moderate, not easy. Also note that you will have to pay if you enter at the point. $5 park entry and $6 parking for 2 hours. parking varies by time.

This is one of my favorite trails when in Chattanooga. The view really great and the hike to the top is a medium level hike.

Short hike to a great view. Perfect for sunset-viewing.

Nice easy trail with a few inclines but nothing too difficult! Beautiful views at top and along the way, and son many friendly people to stop and say hello as they are hiking, and/or rappelling

Did a total of 7 miles off this trail when we were only shooting to do 4. That means it was definitely a good and easy trail! Well until the end when you have to hike back up the two sections of stairs to Sunset Rocks parking lot, that kicked our butts.

It was a nice trail and nice view! I took a puppy on the hike with me and he loved it too!

Magnificent. I saw families with young children on the trail. I saw seasoned hikers and I saw casual strollers. It is on the side of a mountain and the climb up to sunset rock is steep but there are steps built with stone so looks natural. The views are breath taking; the best I have seen.
