Last week Tim traveled in time to the turn of the 20th century! He visited Umbrella Rock in Lookout Mountain, Tennessee. You can hike down to Umbrella Rock from the Point Park trailhead on Lookout Mountain. At an elevation of 2,135 feet, Point Park offers stunning views of Moccasin Bend and Chattanooga. For an even bigger adventure, you can take the Incline Railway up to Point Park from St. Elmo or hike the 1.5 miles from Cravens House.
