Come on out for an early Saturday morning hike at Lookout Mountain and beat the heat! This trek will take us around the #308 trail in a nice big loop. There are definitely some uphill climbs, so while it's rated easy, first-timers will have to work it a bit. The pace will be moderate with a few rest stops along the way.
Bring lots of water, snacks, sunscreen, and a camera. Sturdy hiking boots are recommended.
