Great hike, have hiked this trail several times this year. Took my fly rod one trip and caught several small shell cracker at North Suck creek camp site.

My son and I hiked this trail from Snoopers Rock to Rainbow lake. Camping at Poplar Springs on the way. Very good trail, well marked, beautiful forests with little undergrowth. Nice section of the Cumberland trail.

Great loop for a trail run. Not as technical as most trails in the area. I had 2 beautiful black labs accompany me on most of my run. They must have been camping with their owner, but they were wonderful pacers!

Good morning hike. Great for families and easy to follow the trail.

We loved this trail! The only bad part was actually getting to the trailhead of Suck Creek Rd. The cars and curves had me nervous, since we had our kids. But we made it to and from safely. Lots of window glass on the shoulder from cars being broken into also had me a little on edge. Once making the steep trek up the mountain, it was smooth hiking! Beautiful scenery, nice cool breeze. The swinging bridge and river were my favorite! I'm hesitant to post to not attract a ton of people (Come on, none of us nature people just love heavily populated getaway spots lol) but I believe I've found one of my favorite places on this side of the earth.
