“Winter Vistas: The Old Wauhatchie Pike” Walking Tour To Be Held Jan. 21

Wednesday, January 3, 2018

Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park will present a 90-minute, 1-mile walking tour exploring traces of the Old Wauhatchie Pike on Lookout Mountain on Sunday, Jan. 21 at 2 p.m. This program begins at the Sky Harbor Court Hotel on Lookout Mountain, 2159 Old Wauhatchie Pike. Parking will be located behind the hotel.

"At the time of the Civil War, the Old Wauhatchie Pike connected Chattanooga to Lookout Valley. This
narrow road along the slopes of Lookout Mountain proved to be a formidable obstacle and bottleneck
for both Union and Confederate forces as they moved into and around Chattanooga in the late
summer and fall of 1863. With the lack of foliage in the winter season, tour participants will be able to
better see how this vital road shaped the outcome of the Campaign for Chattanooga," officials said.

Participants are encouraged to bring a water bottle, wear comfortable shoes and dress
appropriately for the weather conditions.

Park, contact the Lookout Mountain Visitor Center at 423-821- 7786, the Chickamauga
