National Trails Day at Sunset Rock

Sunset Rock plays a very important role in SCC’s origin story. For many years, we have partnered up for National Trails Days to support this iconic Chattanooga crag. Please join us to keep the tradition alive and support our great relationship with the NPS!

Sign-up HERE so we can get an idea of how many people to expect.

Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park, the American Hiking Society, and the Southeastern Climbers Coalition are looking for volunteers for National Trails Day on Saturday, June 1, 2024. All volunteers are invited to meet at the Lookout Mountain Battlefield Visitor Center’s parking lot (behind the building) at 9 am.

Join National Park Service staff and other volunteers for a workday on the Bluff Trail starting at the stairs leading down to Sunset Rock. This year’s project focuses on clearing exotic, invasive plants, and other overhanging vegetation, along with general beautification of the trail. Volunteers can
expect to return to the visitor center at approximately 12 pm. All tools and supplies will be provided to volunteers. Volunteers are asked to wear long pants and sturdy, close-toed shoes, no flip-flops. Sunscreen and water are recommended.

 This event is part of our Trail Daze of Summer Series. 

If you come to any 3 trail days all summer at any location you’ll be entered to win HUGE prizes at the End of Daze Party to celebrate all our hard trail work at the end of the summer.

The End of Daze celebration will be held on August 24th at On The Road And Off Headquarters in Chattanooga. Come enjoy some food and beverages and celebrate all the hard work you put in maintaining our crags!

Sweat it out. Earn rock karma. The climbing gods shall bestow all the sending power on you to redeem when temps lower once again.
