"The hike circles Rainbow Lake on the edge of the Town of Signal Mountain. Though scenic, the hike is not as wild as its name implies. Leave the trailhead near Signal Point to soon visit Burnt Cabin Spring. Reach the loop portion of the hike, passing by rock houses (natural rock shelters), cliffs, boulders, and streams flowing into Middle Creek. Cross the first of two impressive swinging bridges over Middle Creek. Hike by the dam of Rainbow Lake before climbing beyond more geological features to complete the circuit." Read more
