A friend and I hiked the Pot Point Loop over May 10-11, 2017. This was our first experience with the Cumberland Trail. We had a good time, despite the trail conditions. The view from Snoopers Rock is excellent. As the video shows, the view toward Racoon Mt. is obstructed by foliage spring - fall. There are many large trees fallen across the trail, and it's apparent that they've been down for a long time. The blazes are often sparse or missing altogether. We camped at McNabb and it was pleasant under a full moon and near the babbling brook. The next day, we missed the Ransom Hollow Overlook completely due to missing signage; bummer after hiking 10 miles. AllTrails.com rates this hike as moderately strenuous, which I think is a bit of an understatement. Pot Point Loop needs LOTS of care and work to bring it back from the grips of nature. A few more years of neglect and this trail will disappear.
