The Catoosa County News - - EDITORIALS & OPINION - Staff re­ports

On Satur­day, Nov. 3, at 9 a.m., Chicka­mauga and Chat­tanooga Na­tional Mil­i­tary Park will con­duct a four-mile, ap­prox­i­mately four-hour, ranger-guided hike on Look­out Moun­tain be­gin­ning and end­ing at the his­toric Cravens House, 1060 Cravens Ter­race, Chat­tanooga, Tenn.

What makes a land­mark? Is it unique fea­tures? It’s un­usual his­tory? Per­haps, it is as sim­ple as an un­chang­ing con­sis­tent ex­is­tence.

Join park of­fi­cials as they ex­plore the his­tory and lure of Look­out Moun­tain on this ranger-guided hike along the Hardy, Moun- tain Beau­ti­ful, Bluff, and Cravens House Trails.

This hike will cover nearly 600 feet of el­e­va­tion change over rocky and un­even ter­rain. Par­tic­i­pants should dress ap­pro­pri­ately for the weather, wear sup­port­ive footwear, bring wa­ter, and are en­cour­aged to bring a day pack and light trail snacks.
