Snoopers Rock & Natural Bridge hike
January 9 All day
Snoopers Rock and Natural Bridge Hike, Prentice Cooper State Forest. Six miles out and back. Moderate. This hike visits a portion of the Grand Canyon of Tennessee, where the Tennessee River cuts a 1,000 foot gorge through the Cumberland Plateau. Within Prentice Cooper State Forest, we will first visit the large, wide vista at Snoopers Rock, where river gorge panoramas amaze. We will then pick up the Cumberland Trail, hiking the canyon rim and the stream valleys that cut their own chasms, eventually reaching Natural Bridge, a sturdy arch over which we hike. Wintertime views are extensive along the wooded rim. Bring water, lunch, hiking sticks and head lamp. Wear sturdy hiking boots. We will offer a caravan from Hardee’s in Monteagle. Please contact Joan Hartvigsen for meeting times and driving directions to the trailhead.
