Lula Lake Land Trust: A shining example of the benefits of conservation, the Lula Lake Land Trust has protected over 8,000± acres on Lookout Mountain with an emphasis to preserve the Rock Creek and Bear Creek watersheds. Their efforts have guaranteed these abundant resources will benefit both current and future generations, and the LLLT provides opportunities to horseback ride, mountain bike, hike, picnic, and just simply enjoy the great outdoors. Located just a few minutes from the main entrance, Hawk Bluff boasts some of the best access to these LLLT resources.
Cloudland Canyon State Park: Located on the western edge of Lookout Mountain, this is one of the most scenic parks in the state of Georgia, offering rugged geology and beautiful vistas. The park straddles a deep gorge cut into the mountain by Sitton’s Gulch Creek, and elevation differs from 800± to 1,980± feet. Hawk Bluff’s entrance is located right next to the main access for the Cloudland Canyon Connector trailhead, which means the owner of Hawk Bluff can strike out on a mountain bike, hike or horseback ride from their own backdoor and travel on miles of well maintained trails to reach direct access to Cloudland Canyon State Park.
In addition, there are boundless other opportunities nearby that surround the Chattanooga community for an outdoor enthusiast to enjoy.
