The cave is beautiful. The elevator ride down was pretty awesome due to the glass door letting you see the layers of dirt/rock. The walk in is pretty slow and the guided tour is pretty interesting. The fall is beautiful, the lights kinda give it that psychedelic glow. Worth a trip :)

BE AWARE OF THIS TOURIST TRAP, THE FALLS ARE FAKE!
The water is pumped up from the pool below! When the lights go off at night the falls stop running!!
It’s a lot of $$$ to pay for a con job.

I would rate this hike more easy than anything up until right before you summit. It twists and turns up rocks. Beautiful views at the top! A must see.

Sights were incredible! Definitely a one time stop for me. Tours are too close to each other which gives minimum space when going through the cave. Other than that, one must experience this at least one time when in Chattanooga!

Loved this trail! Easy with great views, nicely shaded as well.

Soooo gorgeous. A little bit of a make your own trail type hike. Amazing waterfall and lots to explore and climb on!

Everything is great on this trail. Except for few dogs off the leash.

Went for a Sunday evening dog walk/hike. Quiet area, beautiful bird songs, only passed two other people on the trail. Several hours after a rain and the mud wasn’t bad. The puddly areas were raised on planks. Two places where trees were downed were tricky to get through but otherwise enjoyable. The pup got totally muddy but loved it. The pine straw covered much of the trail so it was navigable in just Chacos. It also looked recently cut back in large parts so brush was in check.
The mosquitoes were vicious though! Definitely wear long sleeves!

Nearly drove to Snoopers Rock on the ATV trail next to the parking area - in an Audi SUV - no 4WD needed. The Cumberland Trail is next to the rock and you can go for miles and miles along the ridge line. Great hike, even if it’s a bit toasty in mid-July.

A little confusing to get to the trail head. But once you are there, the hike is well marked, and a great intermediate hike! The view from the rock is worth the 5 miles on a warm and clear day!

The falls are beautiful. The actual hike sucks. Its too expensive and too crowded. We were there Saturday, saw it, done, wont go back.

Great trail, easy to access and has a great view

You walk through an underground cave. Nice sight seeing if you are someone who wants to see the views but isn’t very outdoorsy. It’s a guided tour. Very pretty underground waterfall but your time is limited due to being in a group with other tourists.

When I went there was a big line, but it is all worth it to see the place! Beautiful waterfall at the end that is definitely Instagram and Snapchat worthy!

Great trail as you go by the Indian Rockhouse and a lookout or two before you get to Snoopers rock...If you looking for a easy to moderate trail with a spectacular view at the end this one is a must.

Hiked a couple of years ago but plan on another visit.

I absolutely love this trail. Easy to hike awesome scenery. Walked it is the pouring rain also was fun.

we loved it! we were also the only ones there!

This was my first hiking experience in years, and I truly enjoyed it! I have bad knees, but I was still able to navigate well. The view was beautiful! We will be back here again, but later in the day to see the actual sunset.

Great afternoon hike and what a view at Snooper’s Rock at the end! Brought my dog along and we had such a great time. Would recommend highly

The trail was easy to follow and offered get sights along the way. The bridge, creek, the hole in the ground, the camping site and then mushroom rock. It was a great hike with few hikers on the trail. We took our grand-dog and she loved the hike. We will do the trail to the point next time we visit. It was a great work out.

The waterfall and the story of how it was found is beautiful. Worth the trip!

I’m new to mountain biking but I found this trail to be a lot of fun. Suck Creek Cycle recommended it as a good beginners trail at that it is. It’s not too technically challenging and allows you to really feel what a fast flow track is like. I enjoyed it so much I did it three times back to back, that was about all I could handle physically but it sure was fun.

Moderately challenging uphills. When you make it to the suspension bridge, turn right and you’ve got roughly 20 more minute to mushroom rock. Wear stable shoes as there are some dicey descents, and being your walking sticks. Perfect way to get lost for a few hours. Bonus picnic area at the bridge.

We had a warm day yesterday and decided to check out this trail. Very pleasant and easy. It was a little muddy but there where platforms through the swampy parts. Will do again.

Great spot - great for dogs - lots of access to the river at certain spots to cool off and hang out. This is a favorite during hot summer days - you get your own personal Beach!
