Signal Mountain a prominent mountain along the Tennessee River, and played a large role in the American Civil War. One of the main attractions of Signal Mountain is Signal Point, part of the Chickamauga National Military Park operated through the National Park Service. Here there is an overlook of the Tennessee River and Raccoon Mountain across the gorge, and beautiful western views where you can catch a sunset and have a picnic at the picnic shelter.

Signal Point also serves as the southern terminus of the Cumberland Trail, a National Scenic Trail that, on completion, will travel over 200 miles north to the Tennessee/Kentucky border

I am the Branch Ambassador for Hike It Baby Chattanooga. A native of Richmond, VA, I spent most of my adolescence and early adulthood hiking and camping in the Blue Ridge Mountains, and once my children were born started taking them on adventures with me! I am a portrait photographer and freelance writer, trying to hike my way through all the trails southeastern Tennessee has to offer.
