This is an interesting hike with scenic overlooks of the Tennessee River Gorge, rock formations with the highlight being “mushroom rock” which truly looks like a huge rock mushroom, and 2 suspension bridges.  It also has lots of rocks to walk through and over plus some steep climbs, some stairs.  This is a key swap where one group will start at Signal Mountain and hike to a point on Suck Creek Road.  The other group will begin at a point on Suck Creek Road and hike to Signal Mountain.
