Potential Hikes in the Ocoee Region:
Rattlesnake Falls- This hike is a little under 2 miles one way (4 miles round trip), crossing beautiful Rock Creek several times as you walk upstream. The hike ends at beautiful Rattlesnake Falls, though the more intrepid hikers can scramble upstream a little farther and catch a glimpse of even more beautiful waterfalls as this stream tumbles off Chilhowee Mountain. This hike is suitable for anyone in moderate or better physical condition. This is truly a hike for all seasons! During the spring, wildflowers abound alongside the trail, summer brings great swimming opportunities at the base of the falls, and of course autumn has unbeatable fall colors.
Old Copper Road- An easy walk along the Old Copper Road will take you back to a different time. Your guide will explain the history of the trail, which is the last remaining segment of the original road constructed to speed the transport of copper from the mines of the Copperhill area to Cleveland, TN – this was a trip of 33 miles! This hike is appropriate for anyone in moderate or better physical condition.
Many other hikes are available, some much more advanced than the ones mentioned above. Give our friendly reservations staff a call today to set up the perfect hike for your group.
