Lookout Mountain, TN: Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park invites the public to attend a five mile, ranger-guided, hike exploring the “ruins” on Lookout Mountain on Saturday, November 12 at 9am, beginning and ending at the historic Cravens House.

Each year, thousands of people escape the bustling city of Chattanooga to hike through the quiet forests of Lookout Mountain Battlefield. However, these quiet woods were once bustling with human activity, and upon close inspection, modern hikers can still find traces of our past along the trails.

 This five mile hike will cover nearly 600 feet of elevation change over rocky and uneven terrain. Participants should dress appropriately for the weather, wear supportive footwear, bring water, and are encouraged to bring a day pack and light trail snacks.
