Description Suggest change

Home to the amazing Vapor Roof, Dayton pocket is famous for it's huge horizontal roof with sculpted pockets, pinches and flakes. For those interested in exploring or wanting to escape the crowds, this south-facing hill also hosts a high-quality boulder field with lots of potential for FA's.

If you are curious about all the overgrown coal mining structures in the valley, check out posterityproject.blogspot.c… or rheaheraldnews.com/story/17753

Getting There Suggest change

From Chattanooga:

Take 27 north out of town as if headed to Little Rock City. Stay on 27 North headed towards Dayton until you see the Rite Aid on your right. Take the left at the Rite-Aid on to Walnut Grove Rd. and continue 1.4 miles to a Y in the road. Take the left and drive .6 miles to Dayton Pocket Wilderness Rd. (a dirt road across from the Old Time Holiness Church). The road will dead end in the parking area.

Approach:

Varies depending on area of interest. See specific areas for detailed directions.
