I just finished my first visit to the Chattanooga area, hiking the trails around the Chickamauga battlefield and Lookout Mountain. It is a wonderful area with an extensive network of walking trails. I also spent a day walking around the "reservations" on Missionary Ridge. A brief selection of my favorite spots:


Moccasin Bend in Tennessee River from Point Park overlook on Lookout Mountain:

Thank You! It's almost shocking, seeing Lookout is not, in fact perennially sepia toned. What a great job turning the old photographs into what Lookout was and is- boy, can't imagine those who live nearby ever get used to it, either.

You certainly had better weather atop Lookout than I did when I was there! (Although it cleared up next day for Orchard Knob/Missionary Ridge.) I'm glad you went to Orchard Knob, too - many seem to be put off by the surrounding neighborhood, but I think that's an exaggerated opinion, especially when there are so many important monuments located there.
