Best Trail Named for a Blind Mountaineer

Erik Weihenmayer Trail for Health
Lookout Mountain Nature Center and Preserve

Erik Weihenmayer, the first blind climber to conquer Everest, has teamed with the American Hiking Society to promote outdoor hiking, even for folks with allergies and disabilities. His namesake trail on Lookout Mountain is an easy walk for almost everyone, making Weihenmayer the perfect poster boy in the campaign to get folks off their butts and into the great outdoors.
