Staying home with the kids for spring break this year? There's still plenty to do right here in the Walker County area. We've rounded up a list of suggestions to keep the whole family busy as the weather gets warmer.
Become a Junior Ranger at the Chickamauga Battlefield
Pair up the great outdoors with a history lesson. Your child can become a Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park Junior Ranger by visiting both the Chickamauga Battlefield and Lookout Mountain Battlefield. Simply ask the Ranger on duty at the information desk about the program's books, certificates and badges.
Horseback Riding at Trail's End Ranch
Located just outside of the Chickamauga Battlefield, Trail's End Ranch offers horseback riding for all ages.
Monday-Friday – 8:00 to 5:00 – Trail Rides by appointment only
Saturday – 10:00 to 5:00 – Walk-ins welcome
Sunday – 12:00 to 5:00 – Walk-ins welcome
Fairytale Nights at Rock City
Going to a far away kingdom is as close as Lookout Mountain. Take the kids to Rock City for Fairytale Nights, beginning April 1.

Lula Lake and Falls
The core property of the Lula Lake Land Trust is open on the first and last Saturday of each month. Hiking, picnics, and dogs on leashes are part of the norm at this destination. Take the whole family for a fun-filled day of free entertainment, though donations are encouraged to help maintain the property.
Cloudland Canyon State Park
Whether you're looking for overnight camping accommodations or a scenic day trip, Cloudland Canyon State Park in Rising Fawn offers plenty for the family. Disc golf, playgrounds, arts & crafts classes, picnics and cave tours are just some of the activities awaiting you high atop Lookout Mountain.
Camp New Dawn Open House
Once spring break is over, it won't be long before school's out for the summer. So on April 16, check out Camp New Dawn's open house. You'll learn about the facility's summer camps and receive a tour, which can be a great way to get an early start on summer plans.
