We visited early on a Saturday morning in August. For a small fee you can enter the park and enjoy the amazing views! There are historical markers telling about the battles during the civil war. We took a hike to Sunset Rock and the views from there were even more amazing. The park also had a civil war reenactment but... More

Great historical stop for our family. Inexpensive with several trails and a small museum along with historical markers. Beautiful view. A must do while you are in the area.

For just a few dollars you can take in awesome views and step back in time with this historic battle ground. Take a long walk around the park and partake in the many lookouts available. The museum just outside the park has a wonderful narrated mural of the area and it's war heritage.

What a hidden gem! This place is a must see. You're on top of a mountain, first of all, which has the most spectacular view I've ever seen. Second of all, the history behind these bluffs is incredible. They offer hiking trails and really is a great place. I'd recommend this to anyone.

The views and scenery here are outstanding. There is a small fee to enter the park, I think $5.00 but it was worth it. Follow the trails down the steps to a small museum.

If you are eligible (age 62+), get your *America the Beautiful* The National Parks and Federal Recreational Land Pass, which will cover the entrance fee to sites. It is free. Then enjoy touring. Point Park is atop Lookout Mtn. & you can drive up or take the Incline Railway & walk the short distance to the National Parks Visitors Center... More

We went after doing The Incline. There are bathrooms there which was nice, and admission was free for us since my husband is military. The views were great and gave us a good bit of exercise. I wish I had brought a picnic lunch. There were plenty of trees that provided a good bit of shade.

As a fan of history, I was very impressed with how well kept and organized Point Park was. There's not really any staff or anything, it's very self guided. But you can spend HOURS hiking around the trails here, and you'll want to take about a billion pictures as well. My family made a quick stop here, I wish we... More

Best view on lookout mountain and it was not very much money. Wish we knew to allot more time walking on trails.
