April 25 @ 8:30 am – 2:00 pm
Tuesday, April 25 — Lookout Mountain: Craven’s House to Sunset Rock and back, about 4 miles, moderate due to an elevation gain of 450-500 feet, with an especially steep climb up to Sunset Rock. From Craven’s House we’ll go up Mountain Beautiful Trail to the impressive cliffs skirting the top of Lookout Mountain, then take the Bluff Trail around the point of the mountain to Sunset Rock. On the way back, we will veer onto Craven’s House Trail and return to our vehicles. The views are great, Sunset Rock is really cool, and the cliffs are fascinating! Check the weather forecast and wear appropriate layers; wear hiking shoes or boots; bring snacks and/or lunch along with more water than you think you need; and gather up hiking poles, rain jacket, sunscreen, flashlight/headlamp, and insect repellent as needed. Meet at Craven’s House parking lot at 8:30 am ET. Please register with hike leader Dave Graham, (423) 315-7886.
