Volunteers are welcome bring a sack lunch to enjoy at Pot Point. We will provide some light snacks. 

Directions: The address for Pot Point is 17805 River Canyon Road. 

From Downtown Chattanooga: Take U.S. 27 North toward Signal Mountain. Take the Signal Mountain exit for U.S. 127 North. Proceed toward Signal Mountain.

At the base of Signal Mountain, at the intersection of U.S. 127 North and Highway 27 West, turn left onto Highway 27 (Suck Creek Road).

Proceed exactly 4 miles. Just beyond "The Little Store" on your left, you will cross a bridge over Suck Creek. At the end of the bridge, take a sharp left onto River Canyon Road which runs parallel to the river (the street sign is missing). If you begin going up the mountain after the Suck Creek bridge, you have missed your turn.

Proceed exactly 4 miles to Pot Point Cabin. It is a two-story cabin on the left. You will see a large wooden sign on your right. Please drive up the gravel driveway on your immediate right then turn again into the parking lot. Parking is limited at the cabin.
