Planning to take the wife up to the Chattanooga area over Labor Day weekend. Maybe hit the gunshow up there. Any recommendations on good hiking areas near the border? I am not familiar with the area.
Thanks

if you're going up that way, check out Cloudland Canyon. Nice hike, and nice waterfalls.

Cloudland for sure. The new Sitton's Gulch Trial is a beautiful trail mostly along the water bed with some nice small falls. The rim trail is also a fun time. We did 14 miles there last October and it was the best state park I have visited so far. Second choice is the floor in Tallulah Gorge.

Dont forget you can get a so so hike/walk at Chickamauga Battlefield.

You could learn more about the War of Northern Aggression.

A nice couple of hours in town is a ride on the incline railway up to the top of the mountain and a walk around the mountain top batle grounds, there are cannons and war monuments to the warriors from the south and the poor enslaved basterds from the north. The park is about 3 blocks from the incline railway.
I saw a thunderstorm roll into the city from the mountain top last week and it was a terrific show.

Cloudland was nice - no water over the falls though. Now if I can only get the left knee to work again.
