This loop is located off of the Cumberland Trail in the Tennessee River Gorge Segment,  west of Chattanooga in the Prentice-Cooper Forest.  The first part of the trail is flat and easy passing through a pleasant forest on the plateau.  The trail then descends into the forest following a creek and then continues with a series of gentle climbing and descending throughout the 10 mile loop.     Points of interest are Snoopers Rock with wide open views of the Tennessee River gorge from a large rock bluff, Mullens Cove overlook, and a natural rockhouse and stone door.
