Such a fun trail. A mix of straight, easy trails and more challenging.

Cravens House is a cool historic sight to see. Trail was great, awesome views! I went with some friends that rock climb- definitely good for that!

Very nice trail with beautiful view of Chattanooga from the top! Strongly recommend

This place is gorgeous and the main trail is easy enough but the hike down to the falls was pretty vigorous for someone not in the best shape cardio wise but worth it! Note to wear actual hiking shoes instead of runners for better grip on the gravel.

Lula Lake is a great place to go hiking. one of my favorite courses I do, is from the parking lot to middle Trail. Then take that to the bluff Trail. A great view of the valley. Then Bluff Trail down to the falls which is great on a nice hot day. I usually spend about a half an hour at the base of the falls. Then back to the parking lot. I have it as 4.6 MI. You do some climbing but the hills are long and gradual.

I've hiked at Lula on 2 separate occasions. I look forward to more visits for years to come.

I'm giving a 3 star rating because when I hiked this trail there was a copperhead in the middle of the path. I had made it about halfway and there are steep dropoffs and narrow turns. I did not complete the course because of the snake. Be careful on this trail.

very easy, well maintained, recommend the adventure trail. remember- open only 2x a month!

Loved the views

One of the best waterfalls I have ever seen! In my opinion, this was not strenuous. If you go, get their early, this is on private land and only open on first weekend of the month, so it gets busy early on.

Only open on the weekends is the only negative. Otherwise a good hike.

gorgeous views

Note this trail is only open two days a month. The first and last Saturday of each month. Having said that this is an amazing trail. Exceptionally clean well maintained and has a touch of difficulty. We took the middle trail out and the and the adventure hike trail back. Mildly difficulty at the beginning with ropes to traverse down a steep incline. The Rocks and the waterfall are well with the Trip. Overall a great hike. Two thumbs up.

The trail is dog friendly with great views!

Awesome historical hike with lots of rock climbers, memorials, and cannons! Some trails are overgrown but that makes them more fun. Dog friendly and lots of friendly people.

Beautiful! The waterfall was really big and fun to check out but there are also allot of great trails to check out as well that have beautiful overlooks. I can't wait to go back!

Beautiful and well maintained, the Land Trust does an excellent job. Impressive!

Congested yes... But can't expect such an amazing place that's only open a few day a month to not be! 1st time on this trail definitely not my last!
Extremely grateful for the obvious hard work that all the volunteers put into this place! One of the best kept trails I've ever been on and I've been on countless trails. With the exception of a few water bottle that was clearly left today. Absolutely no trash on the many trails we enjoyed today! National parks are not keep this clean!! Trails, views, waterfalls all of it beautiful! Thank you to the trust for sharing this "private property" with everyone whom wants to play!

I went to school on Lookout Mountain a LONG time ago. Back then, Lula Lake was a very sketchy part of the mountain and you went there at your own risk, and without the owners' permission, I might add. The Land Trust has done such a great job of developing this area. I see two very negative comments posted below and it is obvious that they didn't take advantage of all options. Yes, there are more rugged and remote areas to hike. But you don't go to a place like this expecting that. I went last Saturday, got there when the gates opened, hiked for three hours and didn't see any more people than I see when I hike the Savage Gulf on a weekend. Very nice place.

Very nice, trails are well maintained. Both waterfalls are beautiful. The staff is great, very helpful. Will visit again.

It was an awesome hike (short though) but the lookout point, waterfall n the lake view was amazing.. absolute beauty to watch .. got some real cool views

I love this place. Every time that we have been the staff have been very welcoming and helpful. The trails are always well kept and the sights are beautiful. I only wish it was open more so we could go more often. We took our nieces and nephews (ages 4-10) and they loved it too! We hiked the middle trail to bluff view then the bluff view trail to the falls, the most scenic path. Next time we are going to the bottom of the falls!

Walk from Craven House to Point Park. A bit scary through the woods because there are steep dropoffs down the ravines. The view of the city is at the end, and it's quite lovely. You can also just drive up to Point Park and Craven House (the drive to Craven House is scary because of narrow steep dropoffs as well).

spectacular view from the bluff followed by an amazing waterfall.

This place is terrible don't waste your time. highly trafficked highly congested footpath. We hiked all of them and sadly not one offers more than the next, unable to get away from the congestion noise and screaming children at any point.

trails?? try paved roads mostly. people everywhere and they are loud and annoying. pretty falls but oh wait you can't swim. and why would you with the 1300000 other people around with there screaming kids. anyone with any experience or love for the outdoors have so many better options.

Great trails! Many paths to choose to get to the falls. You can make it as easy, or as challenging as you'd like. The overlook was very pretty as well, but the falls are the real treasure! Absolutely stunning waterfall! Even though you're not allowed to swim, the mist feels great on a hot summer day! Highly recommend going if you can on an open gate weekend!
