Great for jogging and cycling with family

This trail is one of my favorite in TN. Several different waterfalls and caves to see and explore. It's a very difficult hike, but worth it!

Awesome trail, long hike. Lots of cool stuff to do. Will definitely go back

Great day hike with varying elevation changes and terrain!

Moderate my but. Made it .65 miles and had to turn back. Very steep and treacherous.

I've walked this trail countless times; I like it because it gets me in the woods only a few minutes from the house. After climbing the first little bit and getting in the woods you can hear more birds and breeze than traffic. I just do the woods/steeper section down to the creek and then turn around; the flat section does nothing for me. Some wildflowers in the spring (trillium, may apples) and some nice hardwoods.

Hell of a hike! Took me about three hours just to get from one trailhead to the the other. It was a very slow hike.

Spiderwebs covered the trail, so I got about 200 yards in taking about 15 spiderwebs to the face before I decided I needed to wave a stick in front of my face the whole time.

Tons of parts were overgrown and the trail was difficult to find at times. Looks like there is very little trail maintenance.

However, I thought it was an awesome trail. I would definitely suggest doing this in early Spring or Fall though.

Also, I didn't pass anyone so if you are hiking alone I would be cautious!

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.
