Guild-Hardy | Upper Truck Trails

The Guild-Hardy Trail runs on an old Chattanooga and Lookout Mountain Broad Guage Railroad bed that ascends by forested slopes on the east side of Lookout Mountain. 

The Guild Trail begins on Ochs Highway and climbs into Lookout Mountain Battlefield, where it switches back and continues by Craven’s House to end at Scenic Highway. The trail passes under the Lookout Mountain Incline, by Ruby Falls and numerous markers and structures from the Civil War.

More adventurous riders may leave the Guild Trail at Craven’s Terrace and continue up Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park’s Upper Truck Trail, which increases in grade and difficulty as it ascends to Och’s Gateway for another 4 miles.
