This place is a short drive out of Chattanooga, and it is well worth it! Easy to navigate, maintained trails! Great Views!! I suggest doing the entire Mullens Cove Loop Trail! Watch out for the turkeys!

Beautiful! Cold and scenic on this day but well worth the hike. Dress warm and bring water and your camera.
