This hike gives you a little of everything from flat trails to steep inclines on the north and west side of Lookout Mountain. This hike will be lead by Fred Robinson, an avid hike. Though this is a Hiking event, trail runners are welcomed. This is not a timed race, but you are encouraged to keep your own time for training purposes.
