Tennessee River Gorge Trust built the Ritchie Hollow Trail with support and funding from local organizations, and with a Memorandum of Understanding with Prentice Cooper State Forest because the trail resides on their property. Grant funding was received from Rock/Creek, the Riverview Foundation, and the Benwood Foundation to hire the Southeast Conservation Corps to build the most technical sections of the trail. TRGT built the rest of the trail with volunteers from the community including Rock/Creek, the Chattanooga Hiking Club, and TVA.
To access the trail, park at the gravel parking lot across from the Pot Point Cabin at 17805 River Canyon Rd, Chattanooga, TN, 37405, and access the trailhead just above the parking lot. Click here for a full trail map.
Open Daily: Sunrise to Sunset – Except during scheduled hunt dates with in the State Forest. (Typically on the weekends in April and October.) Please check the Prentice Cooper website before heading out.
