Sunset Rock Hike 5:00

Bust your  hump on humpday with a beautiful after-work hike to Sunset Rock on Lookout Mountain. We will hike approx. 2 miles. This is an uphill hike most of the way and has some significant elevation gain, so be prepared.

We'll vote on where to eat, usually Mojo Burrito, Crust Pizza or Mr T's Pizza but we're open to ideas.

Well behaved dogs are welcome.

Required Items: Hiking shoes, warm clothing, water, flashlight/headlamp.

Recommended Items: Camera, trekking poles, snacks and a smile!

Distance: 4 miles total
Type: -up and back
Terrain: Strenuous
Rating: Strenuous
Expected Pace: Moderate 3mph
Expected Duration: 2 hrs including time for views and driving

Drive time: 10 min from downtown

Note: Although it is only about 2 miles to the top, this trail has a significant elevation gain of about 1300 ft. This is NOT a beginner hike!

If you've never joined it can be hard to find. If you go west (towards Nashville) on 1-24 and take the Browns Ferry exit, turn left towards the mountain. You'll pass a McDonalds on the left. Go maybe a mile til it ends at a red-light, Turn left. Go maybe a mile or so, you'll go over a bridge. Immediately after the bridge turn right and bear right. DO NOT HEAD UP THE MOUNTAIN. Follow the signs for either The Nature Center or Reflections Riding. You go through a residential section, very windy road, You make a BIG left and immediately after that we meet it gravel parking lot on the right. Call me if you need help[masked] Brett
