Saturday, December 10 – Ritchie Hollow Trail to Snoopers Rock and return. Moderate, 8 miles, 1,450 ft elevation change. The Ritchie Hollow Trail connects the Tennessee River valley to the Pot Point Loop Trail on top of the mountain in Prentice Cooper State Forest. We will pass Blowing Wind Falls as we meander through mature hardwood forests on our way to Snoopers Rock. Snoopers Rock is a bare rock promontory offering a wide view of the Tennessee River Gorge. Throughout the hike we will enjoy beautiful views of the Tennessee River. Check the forecast and choose appropriate layers, wear hiking shoes or boots, bring snacks and lunch, sunscreen, and more water than you think you need. It’s never a mistake to bring a rain jacket and hiking poles. Meet at the Ritchie Hollow Trailhead parking lot across from Pot Point Cabin, 17805 River Canyon Road, Chattanooga at 9:00 am ET.
