This loop hike offers grand views of the Tennessee River Gorge and takes you over a large natural bridge. There’s a view of Raccoon Mountain across the river gorge. In the mountain, the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) has its Raccoon Mountain Pumped Storage Plant; the utility pumps water to a storage lake on top of the mountain when there’s plenty of electricity and sends it back down through the mountain to generate electricity in times of energy demand. Ransom Hollow Overlook is one of the best views in the region. Along the trail, camping is available at McNabb Gulf Campsite and Hemlock Branch Campsite.
