We took another drive up a twisty mountain road to see Signal Point. As Civil War sites go, this is just ok. There's a couple of information boards on the significance of the site. The view is outstanding! A short walk takes you from the...More

Nice short hike to a lookout point. Awesome view of Williams Lake and surrounding area. If you have time to check it out it only takes about 25 min to get to the top and is worth checking out

Nice views, and there is no cost to get here. But I was not impressed with the park. I had no interest in doing any hiking, so for me visiting here wasted time I could have spent to visit something else.

First visit to signal point. It was rainy and cloudy but well worth stopping. We saw a barge going up the river. When the fog cleared you could see the Tennessee River Canyon.

The hike from Signal Point to Edwards Point is a beautiful view of the Tennessee River Valley. It is a 3 mile in and a 3 mile out trail. I was hoping to catch the color changing of the leaves but I was a little...More
