Beautiful!!

there's several creeks here close by that kids or adults can play in. right under the bridge is the best spot I think. very pretty area, trails arent too long but it's nice and shaded.

Pretty easy. beautiful beautiful beautiful views!!!!! lovers leap is an amazing story too. kid and dog friendly for sure.

Quick outing! Good for groups that have hikers and non-hikers, as there is a lift to take people that do not wish to hike. Shaded with lots of steps going back up!

My wife and I drove up from East Tennessee to see the natural tunnel and hike this trail. We started about 830 am and hiked from the parking lot down the trail to the natural cave. The trail was paved and the scenery was beautiful. We reached the natural cave and was awed by the size of the tunnel! Trains hauling coal actively transport through the cave. There are areas around the stone walls before the cave entrance that saltpeter was mined by Confederate soldiers.
We then hiked back up to the parking lot and up Lovers Leap trail. Again the majority of the trail is paved. The lookout point at Lover’s Leap was breathtaking. Well worth the drive from East Tennessee.

This trail was really well kept and the weather was nice. I couldn’t stand being down around the cave when the train came through. But it’s amazing there almost surreal.

This was the trail that rekindled my love for the outdoors. It's a short, but very rewarding trail. Lots of good views of the river and tunnel and if you're lucky, you'll see a train pass through. It's 0.7 one way so it's 1.5ish out and back. Absolutely beautiful!

The Purchase Ridge trail is what I would consider a moderate trail. The many switchbacks keep it from being difficult, but make no mistake, it is, in some places, very steep. The lookout has the potential to be an amazing view, however, after years of forest growth, almost none of the canyon wall and absolutely none of the canyon floor is visible. Only a narrow window to the canyon can be visualized. On the upside, however, the area is quiet and very secluded. I only met two people, a biker and a runner, and that was on the way back. The growing things along the trail make it well worth the trip if you are, as I am, a photographer. But if the view is what you are looking for, you'll be better off going only as high as Lover's Leap. Lover's Leap is, without question, the best view of the canyon wall and a small bit of the canyon floor. The only place you can see both. I was lucky enough to catch a train coming through on the way back down from Purchase Ridge.
