  • Alternative C offers expanded access to bicycles and brings a unique combination of recreational opportunities to visitors formerly accessible only by foot or car.
  • Mountain biking is a popular activity with children and youth bringing mountain bike access to the Lookout Mountain Battlefield will attract a younger demographic to the park. This will help to foster a love for the great outdoors and our National Parks.
  • The Southern Off Road Bicycling Association-Chattanooga (SORBA-Chattanooga) has a long standing volunteer commitment to trail maintenance and education.

Multi-use trail conversion at Lookout Mountain Battlefield could be a vital asset to the local trails community. Your comments in support of Alternate C, specifically Jackson Gap and Jackson Spring trails, are critical in securing mountain bikes access.
