Monteagle, Tennessee: Rugged Beauty a Short Drive from Chattanooga
Located a 45-minute drive from Chattanooga, Monteagle is enveloped in the rugged beauty of southern Tennessee. About 3 miles north of town, South Cumberland State Park features hiking trails amid pine forests, rocky gorges, and waterfalls. The Fiery Gizzard Trail is a particularly scenic route that runs 12.5 miles to the neighboring Grundy Forest Natural Area. Along the way, it passes numerous overlooks, rock formations, and streams as well as Fiery Gizzard Creek, which is good for swimming.
For a quick day trip, head into nearby Chattanooga. Picked by the New York Times as one of 45 Places to Go in 2012, Chattanooga has seen a resurgence of arts and culture in recent years. It's also adopted greener practices, including public parks, riverfront walkways, and a downtown electric shuttle. Waterfront Coolidge Park is a popular downtown hangout where kids can hop on a century-old carousel and enjoy acres of open green space. Another point of interest is Chattanooga’s Walnut Street Bridge, one of the world’s longest pedestrian bridges. From here, you can take a scenic stroll toward other downtown attractions, such as the Tennessee Aquarium and the Hunter Museum of American Art.
