Notes and comments:

One of the most popular walks on Signal Mountain. From the trailhead (currenly under construction), the path is fairly level until it meets the end of the Bee Branch trail. A left turn (poorly marked, and easy to miss) takes you down into the valley (steep in places) to Rainbow Lake, where it meets two segments of the Cumberland Trail - one to Signal Point and one to Suck Creek Road, via Edwards Point. A swing bridge across Middle Creek takes you to the and of the Bee Branch trail, which crosses Middle Creek again higher up, on a new bridge, returning to the path junction. Rather confusingly, both trails are marked by blue blazes on trees and rocks.
