Note: This is an "EXPLORATORY" trip. This means that there are parts of this trip, or perhaps the whole trip, that is new to your Trip Leader(s). However, they are confident that this will not be an issue.
This note is here so that you can make an informed decision. When a Trip Leader isn't personally familiar with a trip, there is an increased chance of things not going as planned and you need to be prepared. The Trip Leader may have additional details in the itinerary.
Guild Trail to Upper and Lower Truck Trail Loop is a 13.9 mile loop trail located near Chattanooga, Tennessee that features a great forest setting and beautiful views.
This trail loop makes a great day hike for those looking to get to know Lookout Mountain. The loop starts where the Guild Trail crosses Ochs Hwy.
The Guild Trail is built on the bed of the old C and LM Railroad and is a mostly broad gravel path allowing for side-by-side hiking. The Guild Trail passes under the Incline Railway heading for Ruby Falls. There are a couple of bridges over large chasms in the terrain and finally you arrive at pavement signaling the beginning of Ruby Falls. The trail crosses Scenic Hwy at Ruby Falls.
Pace will be moderate/fast. Elevation change is 1700 ft.
