Hiking is very good for the soul, whether you want to believe it or not. If you're not up for a long hike, there are parts of Tennessee where you can get outdoors and see views without the work of a hike. This spot in Chattanooga has some of the most amazing views, and you can take a short, easy route to the top.
Snoopers Rock is about 20 miles outside of Chattanooga, Tennessee and it will give you some of the best views. You might just have to pick your jaw up from the ground when you get to the top of the rock.
This is the perfect hike for those who want an extensive adventure, or one that wants the views without the work.
You get to pick whether you want to make the 6-mile hike to see the views that will take you through the Prentice Cooper State Forest and up to the rock, or you can choose to drive up to the parking lot that's less than a mile to the top of the rock.
This spot is just 30 minutes outside of Chattanooga, so it's a great destination to explore during your visit. Many say it has the best views around, so you should probably go see what all the hype's about.
Once you get to the top of the rock, you'll have views for miles of the Tennessee River Gorge which make for amazing pictures.
If you are just wanting to see the views without the hike, the trail is very easy to follow. Once you park, you'll follow the signs that will lead you into a small wooded forest.
It's the perfect time to visit this destination because the leaves are beautiful colors. As you walk through the forest, you'll feel like you are in some sort of fairytale.
Once you get to the top of Snoopers Rock, you'll have the most incredible 360-degree panoramic view. You're more than welcome to find yourself a spot on the rock and just sit and enjoy the scenery around you.
This is just one adventurous spot in Tennesee, but if you're ready for more you need to head to this location that has a moderate hike that'll take you through tons of unique rock formations, and this park that has four waterfalls and caves you can explore.
