A short trip south of Tyler on U.S. Highway 69 is Love's Lookout, located in Cherokee County just north of the City of Jacksonville, Texas.
At an elevation of 713 feet, it has long been known for its spectacular views to the east, on clear days as far as 30-35 miles. It is often referred to by locals as "Lookout Mountain".
Love's Lookout Scenic Park is a great place for walking or for family picnics, and includes a 5,500 square foot facility with restrooms, vending machines, an information center and a sheriff's sub-station.
Love's Lookout is about 29 miles from downtown Tyler via U.S. 69, and the drive time is about 40 minutes.
For more information, we recommend a visit to the Jacksonville Texas Chamber of Commerce web site.
