Awesome rocky start from last trail head off lookout mountain road. Some very nice views. Some steep elevation changes. Next time I'll start in Genessee.

We hiked this a couple days ago, starting by Lookout Mountain and going towards Genesee Park. The first several miles were fairly level, with a few areas of having to climb over rocks. However, the second half included some substantial uphill and downhill stretches, which were very tiring. We started off with a large meal in our bellies, and what we thought was a good supply of water and snacks, but we ran out halfway through, before we even got to the hardest part. We were famished and exhausted the last portion of the hike. It took us a lot longer to climb the last 1100' elevation, because we were out of gas and had to stop more often to catch our breath.

Many trail listings show this as an 8 mile hike, but our MapMyHike app on the phone showed 10.7 miles, and some other reviews report the same.

It's a beautiful hike. My recommendation is 1) Start from the Genesee Park side, and finish at Lookout Mountain Rd. This will have you going downhill overall, instead of up. Also, it puts all the major elevation changes in the first half of the walk, instead of at the end. Secondly, be prepared for a 10 mile hike over rugged terrain, and bring a lot of water, and some carbs to keep up your energy. Bring more than you expect to need.
