Strenuous hike to Sunset Rock in Chickamauga Chattanooga National Military Park

Join Tennessee WIld's Jeff Hunter as he leads a hike from the Chattanooga Arboretum & Nature Center (CA&NC) to Sunset Rock. Jeff is the Resident Caretaker of CA&NC. The hike will begin at 10:00 am from the gravel lot in front of the Humphreys House (look for signs). There is an $8 fee pp to enter the CA&NC payable when you arrive (free to CA&NC members).

The hike will utilize trails on the CA&NC property to access the National Park Service trails. This hike has 1200 feet of elevation gain in two miles, so hikers should be in good shape. The reward is the great views from Sunset Rock including the view of Moccasin Bend as shown in the image. Jeff will talk about the flora & fauna and also discuss the Battle Above The Clouds that took place here on November 24, 1863. Participants should bring a bag lunch and water. We should be back at the vehicle by 2 pm (or sooner). (There will be an optional visit to see the animals in the WIldlife Wanderland after the hike.)
