Hard to believe this park is 10” outside of Chattanooga as you are surrounded by nature with gorgeous views of the Tennessee River and steep cliffs with no sense of urban development nor overload of tourists and hikers......a real treasure !

There are several ATV trails that are average. It’s a good place for beginners. It was very quiet, didn’t see anyone on the trails, other than turkeys.

Take a hiking map, a good pair of shoes, a friend (or two or three) and set out to see some beauty! This place is thick so come prepared. I love the scenic views and the peacefulness of the quiet out doors

There are lots of trails to explore in Prentice Cooper. Most do the 10 mile Mullens Cove loop but there are plenty of shorter ones including a very short hike to Snooper's rock for an incredible view.

If you like a quiet beautiful clean environment, this is not the place for you. The bathrooms were trashed. I went to two bathrooms in the park and both were trashed like something out of a horror movie. ATV, motor bikes, and trucks race up...More

This place is a short drive out of Chattanooga, and it is well worth it! Easy to navigate, maintained trails! Great Views!! I suggest doing the entire Mullens Cove Loop Trail! Watch out for the turkeys!

My first time to Prentice Cooper left me with mixed feelings. We wanted to try some hiking trails and did the Pot Point trail for 11 miles. The trail head shows a carved map, but no mileage, so look online before you go. We drove...More
