Paragliders and hang gliders take flight from 7,059-foot Mount Zion, mountain bikers churn along Chimney Gulch Trail and hikers have Beaver Brook Trail to explore. The trail system connects to Lookout Mountain Nature Center, which has its own trails in a preserve. Cyclists dissect the park on their climb up Lookout Mountain Road, a 4.3-mile ride of passage with a 1,200-foot elevation gain. The park lives up to its name, with strong drafts blowing down from the Continental Divide. The wind conditions are renowned among hang gliders and paragliders. These high-risk activities require fulfilling requirements from the United States Hang Gliding & Paragliding Association and completing a waiver.
