Ascent of Lookout Mountain on 2010-07-29
|Others in Party:||Eric Morse|
|Date:||Thursday, July 29, 2010|
|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Elevation:||1920 ft / 585 m|
Ascent Trip ReportWe headed out from the state high point adding another 40 miles of driving east to Lookout Mountain (1,923) for the Lincoln County High point. This looked easy, a nice 24 minute run up and back to the Fire Tower and a few minutes taking in the view (hazy). On the way down we ran into the farmer who owns the “first quarter mile of the road”. We apologized for trespassing and he just asked that future visitors check in with him prior to hiking the road. Future high pointers should either check in at the farm or access the summit via the Ice Age Trail which runs over the top and would be about the same distance (3 miles RT) as the road.
