Chattanooga’s 54 Trails : Randy Horton 

Randy Whorton, Wild Trail Exec. Director, will be talking about all the hiking trails in the Chattanooga area, and will fill us in on the progress of our newest trail, to run from High Point on Lookout Mountain to Cloudland Canyon State Park. Randy, a passionate conservationist, quoted in the Times-Free Press, says, “We have 54 trailheads within 30 minutes of downtown  Chattanooga. I’ll bet no other city on the planet can say that. I’ll bet no other has even 30 within 30 minutes. And those 54 lead to hundreds of miles of trails.” Come learn more about how easy it is to get out in the woods!

The public is very welcome and healthy snacks are served. Parking is free along the sidewalks in Coolidge Park, or there is paid parking in the Theatre lot. Invite your friends!! Be sure to let them know we’re meeting now on the Northshore. 

Outdoor Chattanooga is in Coolidge Park, just south of the Walnut Street bridge, kind-of in the Theatre parking lot! There’s paid parking in the theatre lot, and free parking along the sidewalk in the park. Look for our banner!

Healthy snacks served, public is very welcome, bring your friends to our new home.
