"This hike starts at view-laden Point Park on Lookout Mountain. Wander through the monuments and cannon formations near inspiring views. Drop to Ochs Museum and incredible vistas of Chattanooga. A steady downgrade takes you to the Cravens House, an important Civil War site, with its own panoramas. From there, take a narrow foot access up to the Mountain Beautiful Trail, returning to Point Park. Th e hike’s short distance makes the 500-foot elevation change more tolerable to novice walkers."

Beautiful day for a hike but still icy and cold! Bundled up pretty good so was just fine. I will say I didn’t give it all the stars because it was uphill a good portion of the way so I was struggling! But the view
and pleasure of the hike made it all worth it. I don’t know why but I can’t find the Bluff Trail listed in this app and it was another leg of the trail off Craven’s Trail. It is marked clearly at a sign. You can either go toward Point Park or Sunset Rock which is the direction I went. Wonderful hike and I can’t sing its praise enough for how awesome the views were. Will go again very soon!
