Top Scenic Hiking Trails in Chattanooga

May 29th, 2015 by Rob Hart

Hiking Trails ChattanoogaDid you know that Chattanooga is currently in the running to be named the “Best Town Ever” by Outside Magazine?  For those people that live here or visit frequently, that really shouldn’t come as much of a surprise, because it’s won this title before. Chattanooga is a fascinating city to visit for a variety of reasons, but perhaps none more popular than the exciting and dynamic opportunities for outdoor recreation that can be found in the Scenic City.  While Chattanooga offers residents and visitors unique opportunities for outdoor adventurers of all varieties, including rock climbing, road and mountain biking, hiking, white-water rafting, paddle boarding, caving, etc., we think a day spent on the many scenic hiking trails around Chattanooga is one of the best ways to spend a day (or more) in this beautiful city.  Make sure to bring you hiking boots when you book your room at our luxury Bed and Breakfast on Lookout Mountain.
