“Hike the Waterfall Trail!”

Located on the western edge of Lookout Mountain, this is one of the most scenic parks in the state, offering rugged geology and exceptional hiking. The park straddles a deep gorge cut into the mountain by Sitton Gulch Creek, and elevation differs from 800 to 1,980 feet. Overnight guests can choose from new yurts, cottages near the canyon edge, a modern campground and spacious, walk-in tent sites. Backpackers can enjoy camping in a hemlock grove on the 2-mile Backcountry Loop. The most spectacular view into the canyon is an easy walk from the picnic area; however, hikers can also explore a rim trail or journey to the canyon floor by a series of staircases.  Two waterfalls cascade over layers of sandstone and shale into pools below, with their flow depending on recent rains. This Waterfalls Trail is part of the popular Canyon Climbers Club.  Backpackers, mountain bikers and equestrians can explore several miles on the Cloudland Connector Trail.

This was one of the best parks we visited on our trip. We were on our way to the Smoky Mountains and stumbled on this little gem. We loved it so much we stayed an extra day. The camping sites were great. They were well spaced from other sites, tucked in forest, easy access to showers and trails, and the park staff was wonderful. The hikes were easy to moderate and the views were amazing. There was a little trail with access in the camping area that was really short but had a great view of the canyon. Definitely worth checking out.

This was a fun stop. We hiked waterfall trail. There were a lot of steps but it was fun when we got to the bottom. The kids did pretty good with the trail even though it had about 200 stairs to the first waterfall.

We stayed here in early August and even though it was hot and humid in the town below, the temp and humidity at the park was comfortable. The trail to the bottom of the canyon was so worth the effort! The campground was very clean and sites were nicely spaced. On of our favorites during a 3-month trip from Florida to WA State and back!

Stopped here on the way to Lookout Mtn and Chattanooga - what a great decision! Beautiful rock formation and walking/hiking, no water in the waterfall areas due to lack of rain but the awesome silence (except for birds) and beautiful woods made up for it
