Lookout Mountain Georgia

Saturday, August 24, 2013
My husband and I loves traveling to Gatlinburg, TN and everyone we talked to said we just had to take a detour to Chattanooga (or Lookout Mountain) and we did. We really enjoyed  the walking trails and seeing the beautiful scenery. The trails, gardens, waterfall, and natural structures were amazing. We spend the whole day in hiking. When we reach the top, there is an observation deck for more great views. Follow the park around and you will see the other side of the mountain views, just beautiful. I loved that they've kept the mountain so clean and accessible.

Lover's Leap at Lookout Mountain Georgia . According to folklore, a young Indian couple fell in love but could not be together because they belonged to tribes that were at war with each other. They leap to their deaths from this ledge in despair. A very sad story for this beautiful scenery.
This high, wide plateau located on top of a mountain and surrounded by perpendicular cliffs


The top of Lookout Mountain that has a view to die for


Do you see the Seven States? Ok, you're in Georgia, so you don't have to look very far to see that one.  Tennessee is just to your left (you cross the state line as you drive up to the park).  Alabama isn't far, and  the Smoky Mountains of North Carolina .  I think the biggest stretch is Kentucky and Virginia.

Below Lover's Leap is a large man-made waterfall fountain.  You can get a good view of it as the trail circles around, after leaving Lover's Leap.
