We discovered this park while hiking the Lookout Mountain trails from Craven House. There was a set of metal stairs that we wondered where they led to. . .and they led to a beautiful park with lots of overlooks and battlefield monuments. It's a nice place to take your family.

Our family really enjoyed learning the history of Lookout Mountain. The views were also breath taking. We will be back.

Drove the car to the Craven's House and walked the trail up to the point. Beautiful walk, stone ledges and walls. Not a difficult trail but is uphill and wear decent shoes. The walk is WELL worth it! Allow yourself plenty of time, several hours, because uphill takes a bit longer and once you get there you will want to... More

My son loved it in fact, he wanted to act as if I threw him off the mountain side, photoshop the picture and send it to his mom. In summation, this is another cool attraction just up the hill from the Incline R.R. and..... it's the LEAST expensive of the whole Lookout Mt. Experience!

Point Park is a National Military Park. We chose it over the Lookout Mountain attraction. We caught the presentation from the Park Ranger about the Civil War Battles of Chattanooga and The Battle Above the Clouds. It was very good. As we progressed to the different "lookouts", we learned of the commanding generals and the battles themselves. The Ranger speaks... More

Would not have even known about this place except for another reviewer.Just up the mountain from Ruby Falls. NIce little park with beautiful views from the top! Lots of facts and monuments about the battle fought here. $5.00 admission (pay at a machine cash or card) but well worth it. It takes about an hour to walk around.

This was not on our itinerary, but it was only a short walk from the incline railway station, and we went for it. It was a nice walk over, and the park was incredible--well maintained and interesting with lots of history and amazing views of the area. We ended up skipping Ruby Falls in favor of the park and don't... More
