Fun hike with a great view at Signal Point! We loved seeing the bridges, creeks, and boulders throughout the route. There were many rocks and tree roots to traverse along the trail. Watch trail signs as some of the trails seem to cross at certain points. We definitely enjoyed this hike!

My favorite hike! Beautiful views, challenging but awesome! Takes you to other connecting trails if you want longer hikes.

This was a perfect place for a midday hike with my husband and three girls. Not too challenging but you do get a workout. Can swim and play in the creeks. Very scenic and we took some great photos. It was a real highlight of our trip to TN. It was muddy. Also had trouble following trail signs but we did fine.

great loop

Great way to stretch the legs and plenty to see.

Unfortunately the trail has not been maintained at all. There are numerous washouts, several widow maker trees that block the trail and frankly make parts of the trail unsafe, and the worst part of the trail is closer to the dam. A large tree blocks the trail, so you have to climb down the edge of the gorge to pass, but its basically a muddy, and almost impassible, cliff edge. I would not recommend this trail until some serious trail maintenance has been performed. It's sad to see just how dilapidated it has become, since this was the trail that made us fall in love with hiking and Chattanooga. Until some serious trail maintenance is performed, this trail should be rated as difficult. Full trail review + pics coming soon to our hiking blog: www.Wander-Full-Life.com

The day I walked this trail it was difficult. Obvious signs of erosion and storm damage, plus human interference, made it a little rough. Once past the mousetrap(stairs) you're basically on your own. The views are worth the effort, especially Julia Falls Overlook, but be prepared. Not a good trail for elderly, young and rambunctious children, or inexperienced hikers. It's not a "picnic trail". Might have been in the past, but not now.

Moderate hike average hikers and children can complete. Be careful to stay on the correct path, there are several forks to other trails. There is a dam and small swimming hole at the bottom with campsites.

Lovely trail past Mushroom Rock and down what I think was the side of Signal Mtn to an awesome swinging bridge .....beautiful! The only problem was that the trail is poorly marked at what looks like the half way point on the loop. We followed what we thought was the trail only the gps tracker said we weren’t on the trail and we promptly were lost looking for a no longer existing or re-routed trail back up Signal. This part of the trail is more hard than moderate at least cardiovascular wise.

Lovely hike.

Beautiful trail, great for a moderate workout

reviewing as someone who hiked this for the first time...the trail was poorly marked. the trees were well marked with the color of the trail you are following, but the trails lacked maps that show where you are and where each trail will lead you to. however, because of this our 6 mile hike luckily turned into a 9 mile one;) the all trails app helped us get back on track to Edwards point. the views were worth it!!

These trails are well marked yet flow naturally, with many scenic views.

It is a hiking trail folks, it’s not a walk in the park.

Great hike for my dog and I. About 4.5 miles round trip out to Edwards point. It says moderate, but there are a few short strenuous portions. Not for a beginner hiker.

Beautiful falls.. April 27, 2018, Elaine , Maria, Leslie, Mother and I did this hike. It was gorgeous and we loved it

Not easy for over 65. Steps going down are in bad shape making difficult to get down to and back up from the trail. The first section should be upgraded to moderate.

The trail is easy, the stairs down to it can be tough when you’re coming out. A few are missing and make for a bit of a challenge.

Great views and visibility in January.

One of my favorite places

My favorite trail. It is lovely and a moderate hike.

Beautiful this week for us with fall colors in full bloom, lots of trees down between Edwards and signal point.. beyond Edwards we only saw a few people, mushroom rock is really cool. The campsite at suck creek was very large and could accommodate several groups. We were dropped off at signal and picked up at suck creek road the next morning. Made for a nice days hike with a 20lb pack

Incredible views at the overlook. I would say more “moderate” than “easy”.

Excellent out and back

Awesome overlooks and water falls with an old dam and lake at the end.

it’s a Easy trails! But going down to the trail is kinda of a challenge! But over all it’s still a five star hike

Easy trail and wonderful views!
