Photograph Snoopers Rock

Snoopers Rock

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!

Hike and Swim at the Middle Creek Slide

You park just west of the map waypoint on the wide shoulder (remember to lock your car, thefts have been reported in this area).  The trailhead is really just an opening on the side of the road.
