“A nice trail contouring along the northwest ridge of Lookout Mountain.”
— Brian Smith
Begin at the trailhead and head northwest across the prairie until the trail starts climbing. Go through gypsum beds and head up a few switchbacks and some steep sections.
Follow the trail through some pine and climb to a knoll along the ridge before descending through a green gate and into more pine. The trail then reaches a small ravine and climbs a short, steep, rooted section before crossing an old doubletrack and climbing along the ridge again.
Cross the doubletrack again and take a short, winding section before crossing the doubletrack again heading towards the summit of the mountain. The trail meets the Tech Essence and Round The Crown trails before continuing to the end at the junction with Round The Crown.
