Mountain Beautiful Trail (Lookout Mountain)

Mountain Beautiful Trail (Lookout Mountain)

Once again, a very literal trail name! A great hiking trail that takes hikers up to the cliffs of Lookout Mountain and then follows the cliffs around the nose of Lookout Mountain. This trail is quite steep at first, but once to the cliffs, the trail flattens out. Definitely worth the hard work to get there!

Directions from Chattanooga: Take Broad St. toward Lookout Mountain. Follow Broad St. until it turns into Cummings Hwy. Continue on Cummings Hwy until left turn onto Scenic Hwy. Follow Scenic Hwy for approx. 2.5 miles and turn right onto Shingle Rd. Continue on Shingle Rd. for .5 mile and turn right to park at the Craven’s House.
