An interesting ride to the top with a Great View! What a beautiful place. The views are fantastic! make sure to bring a camera! Lots of civil war history here! Remember to buy a combination ticket and save a couple of dollars on the railway and ruby falls.

We recently stayed in Chattanooga for a few days. Look out mountain is certainly a must do. What a beautiful place. We drove up the mountain but be prepared for twisty roads but it's well worth it. The views are wonderful and some many photo opportunities. If you like history this area is for you as well with so much... More

The only thing I disliked was the 1 1/2 wait to go down the Incline Railway and back up. Other than that - I loved the beautiful scenery traveling up to the top of the Mountain and all of its splendor.

The views were great at the top. There were lots of flowers and plants everywhere and plenty of shops. Really enjoyed the walk up to the top.

The small section on this review "when did you visit" doesn't go back any where near to the time I first went to Lookout Mountain. Rest assured it was way before August of 2013. I just want anyone who has never been to know what they are missing. My first visit was close to 56 years ago. I was about... More

This was an attraction that you could do on your own time, no guided tour. There were a lot of things to explore. Caves to go through, some rocks to slide through, and the scenic view was amazing. It's a great day with nature and very relaxing for the soul. This is not for those who are not physically in... More

A must if you are in Chatanooga. Buy a combination ticket so you can go to Ruby falls as well. The views are amazing and its great fun following the trail around. no buggies allowed due to the tight squeezes here and there so you will need to carry any little ones that are with you
