Years ago, Charles E. James, developer of the 250-room Signal Mountain Inn (known today as Alexian Village), was the mastermind behind Rainbow Lake. By constructing a dam, James formed Rainbow Lake in 1916 for the enjoyment of his guests and nearby residents.


The Mountain Arts Community Center (MACC) provides Signal Mountain residents with dedicated resources to maintain a prosperous arts culture.
As such, residents are offered discounted
tuition fees on classes for painting, music, dance, and culinary arts. Since the 1970s, the Signal Mountain Playhouse has produced one to two theater productions per year, and the Bachman Community Center offers a range of art activities, programs, and events.




Places to hike, bike, and camp are not hard to find on Signal Mountain. Areas such as Prentice Cooper State Forest, which features roughly 25,000 acres and 35 miles of trails, provide the perfect avenue for exploring the Tennessee River Gorge. Among the more notable trails are Cumberland Trail and historic Rainbow Lake Trail, both of which provide stunning views. New developments such as Flipper Bend offer outdoor amenities and access to these state protected lands.




Children can play and have fun at the forested Pumpkin Patch Playground, which features a myriad of slides, bridges, swings, and forts. Althaus Park, situated near the Signal Mountain Golf & Country Club, is another popular spot for outdoor play.




Both independent and chain restaurants offer residents a variety of dining options, while the Signal Mountain Golf & Country Club offers fine dining in addition to a championship golf course. Residents also can take advantage of facilities that support baseball, basketball, lacrosse, soccer, and tennis. The town’s gym and pool are located in the Paul Mathes Community Center.
