A great place to live, or a great place to visit for a walk, or historic visit and hike. With miles of trails, the Civil War exhibits and monuments, Lookout Mountain offers both the history buff and the hiker all he wants.

Nice casual day trip that entertains the whole family and does not lighten your wallet. We left from Atlanta after a nice brunch and reached there at around 1 p.m. We spent about 4 hours checking out the whole place like the birds of pray show, fat mans' squeeze, lookout deck, lovers leap, seven states, fairy tale garden etc. It...

Especially enjoyed a refreshing beverage at Cafe 7. The gardens were beautiful and we did both routes.

The Incline Railway is a very unique way to get to the top of Lookout Mountain. Amazing that it was created 100 years ago and still is an attraction. The view from the point of Lookout Mountain is breath-taking and the cannons and descriptions help to visualize how it was used to watch over the valley below. Looking at how... More

Rock City and Ruby Falls are based on Lookout. But that is just a little of what makes this place unique. One must go see for themselves.

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
