A steep popular trail to an amazing view from the summit of Lookout Mountain.

Description

One of the most popular trails in Montreat, the Lookout Trail leads up to the rocky summit of Lookout Mountain with great views of the Montreat Valley and the Seven Sisters. Near the summit the trail is a rocky scramble that is super fun. Great trail, just expect some crowds.
