“Relentless climb followed by a technical, fast descent.”— Hunter Swanson
After the steep switchback section, you'll top out at a private driveway, follow the signs for Chimney Gulch Trail. Climb a steep section of trail and up a rock garden to reach Lookout Mountain Road. Cross the road here and continue on Chimney Gulch Trail for more uphill abuse!
When you reach the top of Chimney Gulch Trail, you'll cross the road and head over towards the Windy Saddle parking lot. Continue biking up the Lookout Mountain Trail. You'll pass intersections for the Beaver Brook Trail and Buffalo Bills Grave. Stay on the Lookout Mountain Trail, as these trails are hiker only. Reach the top of Lookout Mountain Trail and take in the views before your descent.
Be mindful of hikers and other trail users on the way down! Be sure to yield to everybody on your way down. Don't give mountain bikers a bad name by having bad trail etiquette!
