Soddy Daisy, Tennessee Map

Loaded with poison ivy. Trail was overgrown and very narrow. Make sure if you have problems going DOWN steep areas you have a stick. We went about a mile and half in had to turn around because of it being overgrown with poison ivy. The river was really pretty though. Ended up walking back on the river bed boulders.

Poorly maintained and marked trail. Beautiful scenery except for the large amount of trash dumped in the area

Awesome bouldering

Terrible trail. Extremely challenging for dogs on a leash. Hard/difficult doesn’t accurately describes traversing rock faces on cliffside hikes. They did add stairs though!

Well recommended for beginners. Absolutely loved. Very clean and well maintained

The first 1.5 mile in from the parking lot is a gravel road but beyond that a nice hike. I will be back to go camping.

Took my dog, and ran into trouble when I wasn't able to get her down the ladder. This was probably 4 or 5 miles into the hike. I was hoping to see the campsite since it is apparently one of the nicest on the Cumberland trail. Still a beautiful hike!

Great hike and a great place to go for a swim, would go back anytime. The farther down you go, the tougher the trail gets, nothing bad at all though. The parking lot is not closed anymore, we had heard that it had been closed most of the summer.

This is probably my favorite trail bc I grew up hiking it. Many good memories. The old mines, scenic look offs, and river crossings made this such a memorable experience. This is not an easy trail and recommend you don't rush this hike. Take many breaks and soak this one up.

The first 1.25 miles is like a really nice gravel road with lots of swimming holes and plenty of parking. You can see lots of mothers pushing strollers. Then the path crosses a small creek and we lost the trail at about the 2.5 mile mark. Lots of beautiful bluffs, the trail isn't very rocky like some around but you have to negotiate some fallen trees.

Most amazing views. Worth the hike, but it's a good workout.

The parking lot is now open as well as the site where the old cable crossing was....there's a freshly constructed bridge just down the creeks convergence.....

wonderful trails! my kids and dogs loved it! easy access!

Excellent easy hike. Perfect for families with kids and dogs.

In from Barker Camp. Was amazing. Little overgrown in places and some downed trees near the campsite.

It’s a nice place to just relax and take in the scenery.

Pretty easy walking trail, but it was beautiful! Several spots where you could sit at a picnic table, too! But none of them are super close to the trailhead, so be aware of that if bringing food in. We didn’t do the whole loop, but we stopped when we got to some rocks that you could play on or swim in the water, and it was lovely!

Nice hike even on a rainy day. Thank you Emily Vaughn for telling me about this place.

Great trail. Beautiful experience.

CT has the best trails in the south. Top notch trail work!

really beautiful. officially my favorite hike in chattanooga.

Gorgeous scenery with some challenge

Great trail for all ages. It’s an old mining road so the trail is wide and graveled. Runs right along a stream (or a big river when it’s been raining) for some gorgeous scenery.

Beautiful views of waterfalls and the north Chickamauga creek. Some up and down with branch crossings

Cold when I went. Needs more blazes on the descent to the campsite.

Spectacular trail run! I did a total of 7.25 miles out and back and would have gone farther but got turned around at a river crossing that was too high, so I’m not sure where the turnaround point would be to make this trail only 4.1 miles.... Anyway, I loved the variety of this trail; lots of ups and downs with waterfalls and cliffs; and the trail went from an old logging road, to rocky, to beautiful single-track through tall grass up top. Spectacular views too!

Have been coming here for years. Lots of swimming holes and hiking. Big effort in trying to clean up the park in recent years.
