Lula Lake holds special memories for me and my family. When we were kids, Mother would prepare a picnic and after church the entire family would hike up a mountain trail for lunch and a swim in the ice cold water. My husband has heard stories about our outings so while in Chattanooga this past October, he asked if I would take him to Lula Lake. It had been years since I last visited but once we got there, the memories flooded my mind and it seemed like only yesterday. My Dad would dive from the cliff and we, of course, would scream as he plunged into the water. He used to tell us not to worry about him getting hurt because Lula Lake “has no bottom,” and we, of course, believed everything Daddy told us. Oh, the innocence of children! About a mile down stream from this pool is a 100′ waterfall, appropriately named Lula Falls.
