“A singletrack route right out of town to the summit of Lookout Mountain.”— ktboundary Thompson
The trail off of the summit is steep and rocky with some potential for a fall. Descend to a two-track road that is used to move equipment to the towers at the summit. Follow the track down until the trail joins the Hopa Maste on the right-hand side. Follow the Hopa Maste back to the northwest through grass and trees until you rejoin the Ridge Trail.
This is one of many possible loops on the mountain.
