If you have never been, you must do the incline railway, ruby falls and rock city. They are all indigenous to the area. It is a beautiful area and a must do if going to Chattanooga on vacation.

My wife and I stopped here on our drive to Florida from St. Louis. I had been here before, when I was a child. I had great memories, and wanted to share them with my wife. We drove straight to the top, there is a park up there with breathtaking, panoramic views in every direction. If you love staring off... More

The incline was really nice and the view was fantastic. The only thing I didn't like was getting off then on again at the top.

It was a little hot after we walked through Rock City, but it was still well worth it. Nice to see 7 states from one point, and the view is pretty breath taking. The waterfall they have set up is also pretty cool, and they have abundant space to relax and chill. There was a band playing bluegrass when we... More

Went to Lookout Mountain to enjoy the view. The drive was absolutely beautiful being that we were able to see beautiful mansions with the city of Chattanooga as their backdrop. We went when it was almost sunset and we were able to take great pictures. The walk can be a bit tricky for those that have difficulty walking, especially when... More

Interesting to learn about the Civil War battles in more detail. There are great views of Chattanooga from the top as well as memorials and original weapons.

I love Lookout Mountain. It has the most unique history about the Civil War & it's so beautiful. Great place to watch or go hang gliding. Very beautiful homes & a lot were built from the mountain rocks. Lots of other place to see on Lookout mountain. Dang shame we ran out of bullets. I've often wondered just how many... More

We had visited here a long time ago and wanted to go back as we remembered it was a nice place. It may have gotten better. The views were awesome. The rangers at Point Park were helpful and took time to answer questions fully. The park is well kept. The displays in the park's visitor center were informative and kept... More

Nothing to dislike. The incline is a must!! The history of the area is very interesting as well! Drive to the top and take the incline down. Enjoy the 72% angle of the rail ride !!
