I took the drive up the mountain to take in the significance for the Union Soldiers there during the Civil War. It has remarkable views and some trails. Free parking with a few signs and gazebo if interested in taking food.

This place got me right with Jesus and I'll be starting a new workout regimen when I get home. Even if you park and simply walk to the lookout, it's still 100 yards down a hill, which you then have to walk back up.
It's gorgeous, well maintained, and there's a bathroom, but if you are fluffier like me, make sure someone in your party knows CPR.

Beautiful view, lots of parking, but the hiking trails are not well marked and are very steep. I went about 1/2 a mile on a trail and decided to turn around because I didn't feel safe on the trail. Would recommend for experienced and very fit hikers, but not for a casual walk.

Great park, but it is closed due to Covid...really love this spot. Maybe it will reopen soon. Maybe a drive along East brow for a view or hike on Rainbow Lake trail for exercise.

My wife and I love this hiking trail. The steps are pretty grueling after the long hike but a good way to put you to the ultimate test. Hiking to Rainbow Lake and then on the Edwards Point is very cool.

I’ve been here numerous times and have enjoyed each time.

Sometimes the parking is very busy the later in the day that it gets but earlier mornings it is easy to access.

The trails at this location are stellar. Take the signal point to Edwards point option and enjoy a few suspension bridges.

If you are truly looking for a still quite place to take in the breath taking views of this area of the United States I do not think you could a better place!

Beautiful view of the woodedTennisee river valley. For folks that can't hike (or don't want to), this overlook is very convenient -- you can drive to the top and park. The overlook is about 100 yards away on a paved walk, and with less than 20 stair steps. And all downhill too.
For the athletic and energetic, the hike down Signal Point is a great adventure for those who like a challenge -- or steep hiking.
Regardless, the view at the top is well worth the drive.

Short walk for an amazing view of the river. Totally worth it. My 83 year old mom did it so it’s pretty easy.

We drove to the top of Signal Mountain. The view is beautiful. Then we hiked to Julia Falls Overlook and a bit past it. It is a steep hike with lots of wooden stairs, rocks and trees. Our kids loved all the climbing built into the hike. Our puppy loved it too.
