Photograph Snoopers Rock

Details

Added by Clare Healy

This stunning overlook of the Tennessee River Gorge is a short 30 minute drive from downtown Chattanooga and can be accessed via a short gravel path. Might be one of the best views around!

To hit one of the best panoramic views of the Tennessee River Gorge, head into Prentice Cooper State Forest and head straight for Snoopers Rock. This 6,000+ acre protected park is home to over 35 miles of trails, campsites, and so much more.

To access Snoopers Rock, you can drive through Prentice Cooper and park just yards away from the gorgeous viewpoint. But if you are up for a hike, Mullens Cove Loop is an excellent, well-marked hike stemming from the viewing area.

Sunrises!

One of my favorite places to watch the sunrise. Especially with the inverted clouds. It's a gorgeous spot and so easy to get to.

Great place to watch the sunrise!

Awesome views and a great place to get up early and watch the sunrise.

Beautiful

Beautiful view.

Awesome View!

Lots of hiking trails, but you can get to the actual overlook in just half a mile of you don't want a long walk. The view from the top is absolutely worth the drive up the mountain.
