A Great place to spend a little time and even hike down to Rainbow Falls. The hike is not for the faint at heart, but very doable for the healthy person.
Read the historical markers to give yourself a blast back into the past when the Yankees were Invading the South, The Civil War.

My home is withing walking distance and one of the places we always take out of town guests. The scenery is lovely and the plaques relate the historical events of the site accurately. Not a good venue for small children or the handicapped as it is a healthy trek from the parking lot to the overlook...and even more strenuous coming back! But, if you're reasonably fit and/or have children who listen to warnings of possible danger, you'll enjoy the effort.

Signal Point has a view of the TN River gorge that cannot be described for its beauty. There is also an amazing hike to more incredible scenery. Just know before you go, the view cannot be seen from the parking lot, so if you cant walk or roll down the hill, you should drive alond the brow road to see the views.

We walked the .9 mile hike to the waterfall just to barely see water coming out but it was a beautiful view! :)

Signal Point has some great views of the river, Chattanooga and Lookout Mountain. The only drawback is it is difficult to find and not well marked off of the main roads. There is a very interesting climb down the mountain that can be challenging at points but it is well worth the hike.
