“A no-nonsense trail to the summit of Lookout Mountain.”— Guy Granger
The trail starts out deceptively easy. Follow the Trail 150 signs. After you leave the Lookout Mountain Circumference Trail #308, the trail begins to steepen and switchback as it works its way up the mountain.
At 0.4 miles, you arrive at a saddle, with great views of North Mountain and Shaw Butte. If steep rock makes you nervous, this is a good place to turn back. If you go on, take a sharp left and stay close to the ridge line. The trail becomes more faint, but you cannot get lost. Just be careful of the sharp drops.
At 0.5 miles, you arrive at the summit post, with spectacular 360-degree views, and very few people to spoil your panoramic photos.
