Lookout Mountain, GA – The thrill of hiking Lula Lake Land Trust reaches a new level as the popular nature preserve with limited public access doubles as the location for a photo scavenger hunt.
The event, which takes place on Saturday, July 13th from 9:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., is the third offering in the Walker Rocks Outdoor Series, which was created by the Walker County Chamber of Commerce to raise local awareness about Walker County’s outdoor destinations.
Visitors will be given two hours to find and photograph specific items while walking Lula Lake’s trails. Pictures can then be posted on each participant’s Facebook page and tagged to the Walker Rocks Facebook page (@Walker Rocks) for a chance to win a prize.
Scavenger hunters will then get an hour of free time to picnic and explore the falls, the east brow of Lookout Mountain and other scenic locations.
Admission to the scavenger hunt is free, but pre-registration is required at walkerrocks.com due to limited space. Participants must also be able to walk a minimum of three miles to take part in this event.
The Walker Rocks Outdoor Series moves to LaFayette on August 17th with Dive-in Movie and Such, a mini SUP board and kayak festival at Queen City Lake. That event concludes with a showing of Jaws on the water.
Chickamauga, GA – Imagine a summer filled with camping, hiking, fishing and watersports with some music, movies and good eats mixed in. The newly launched Walker Rocks Outdoor Series blends these experiences to make some of Walker County’s leading outdoor attractions more accessible to the general public.
The series kicks off with the Family Campout at Mountain Cove Farms (994 Dougherty Gap Road, Chickamauga) on Saturday, May 25th. Load up your vehicle and head to the Cove for an afternoon of campground music and field day style games, like three-legged races, sack races and kickball. Campers can also relax by the campfire while making s’mores and catch a special showing of the 80’s adventure movie The Goonies.
“This is a family friendly event that offers a unique opportunity for parents with young children to try out camping and see what it’s like to sleep outdoors,” said Lacey Wilson, Chamber President. “We also see this as a staycation of sorts for folks looking for something unique to do with their family over the holiday weekend.”
Set up for tent camping begins at 2:00 p.m. A vehicle parking pass gets you inside for all activities. The cost is just $5 per vehicle in advance online at walkerrocks.com or $10 cash the day of the event. Food, drinks and popcorn will also be available on site to purchase.
