First off it is only $3 per person. There is a trick to parking. Right behind the visitors center is a parking area that is not metered. It is very small. The views are indescribable. Make sure you see the museum, and the battlefield mural (it is in the visitors center).

The best view in Chattanooga in my opinion. The park itself is not all that big but there are plenty of hiking trails. The park cost just $3.00 per adult and worth it just for the view. There is also a NPS station/store at the entrance that has some information about the area and one awesome painting of the Battle... More

We found this gem at the top of Lookout Mountain. It was a neat piece of history, but that view was amazing. I personally think the view there is better than the view atop Lovers Lane at Rock City! You really got to see the river and the city of chattanooga from there! It was awesome! I recommend. Only $3!

We have been here a few times and the views are amazing. You have to pay to get in but it's worth it. There is some pretty incredible civil war history as this is where they had "The battle above the clouds". It's amazing to look down and imagine thousands of union troops storming up this mountain. If you get... More

We drove up to the top of Lookout Mountain, Wandering through the nice variety of old and new homes with woods and glimpses of the view from the mountain was an unexpectedly nice part of the trip to the top. Point Park is kid and dog friendly. It is one of the oldest military parks in the country. Beautiful views... More

Been there many times and I enjoy it every time. The views are breath taking and the history of the Civil War is rich... They have cleaned some of the trees to get an even better view of the area. I am disappointed they have blocked off the rocks many soldiers stood on in awe of the views. Regardless it... More

Got way more than I expected for $6. 2 adults and 3 children. Entered the park to find awesome historical battle information. Monument was beautiful. Went to see the cannons and found a winding trail down to the museum. Amazing views. Drive getting up was a true adventure.

We visited other parts of Lookout Mountain but this area was our absolute favorite. Beautiful views, much better than the views you encounter at Rock City.

We visited this after the Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park. This park is so beautiful. The history behind the Battle Above the Clouds was talked about in the movie we saw in Chickamauga. It was amazing to realize that a battle was actually fought here. The park itself is not big but it has the most beautiful monument in... More
