Legend has it that more than 300 years ago a young Indian maiden leapt from this rock to her death when she learned that her lover, a Cherokee chief, had been killed in battle. Indian lore to this day maintains that on some moonlit nights the ghost of the heartbroken maiden can be seen on the rock. Views from the rock during daylight hours are breathtaking of the valleys below. The rock itself is surrounded by landscaped grounds.

The easy (or blue) trail takes only about 8 minutes and is roughly about 500 feet long. The medium (or yellow) trail usually takes around 15 minutes and is around 1200 feet in distance.

The hard (or red) trail is the hardest one, and despite it being about the same length as the medium trail, it takes a little longer to complete because of its added level of difficulty.
Trail length: 1 miles
