A nice easy hike not too far out of Nashville. Leads up to a beautiful vantage point over the Harpeth River. Good for the novice hiker or someone on a tight schedule, but otherwise, too short and not challenging enough to be really worth it.

Fun hike. The payoff definitely worth it.

I went here based on the hard rating. Middle of July, 90 plus temp, day after it rained in our area. Small gravel walk up to get to the trail. Zigzag down ridge. Kinda treacherous, but doable, taken slowly.

Then it's just a long, easy walk crossing 9 creek crossings. Bring a change of shoe, or bring some hybrid that can handle water and hiking. I brought sandals and switched to them at CC1. I never found a need to switch back to hikers until I got back to CC1 on the return. Definitely want something other than a sandal for the ascent at the end.

The ascent to the Window Cliffs is a decent incline, but I would rate this more of a moderate, unless it had been storming recently, or had steady rains the previous days.

My scoring of this trail may be colored by my disappointment at the lack of difficulty. I had done the Fiery Gizzard loop 2 days prior and was looking for a similar, though shorter, challenge. So, if you aren't looking to test your abilities on the hardest trails you can find, this may be the trail for you. Personally, my next goal is Mount LeConte, or completing the Gizzard full trail.

This section of trail is an excellent example of what this region and the Cumberland Trail as a whole offers. Multiple unobstructed views, stream crossings, geological features, and decent elevation changes.

Awesome views! Signal Point was my first, true hike... I'm hooked! I'm ready for my next trail!
