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

We have visited Point Park and associated areas of this National Park. With each visit one cannot forget the extraordinary battle that was fought on those hollowed grounds. If one begins their tour at the foot of Lookout Mountain in Chattanooga and while ascending there are many points of history. Did you know besides the Civil War the last battle... More

Skip Ruby Falls, skip lookout mountain. This is the place to see. Quiet, peaceful, serene, with outstanding views. My husband is a huge civil war buff and I stopped here on our way to Atlanta, even though he said no that there probably wasn't much left to see. Boy was he wrong! It might be small when compared to some... More

Get off the incline railway at E Brow Road and walk a few feet down to look at the beauty of the World and the History that has played out in the area. Not to mentioned the beautiful neighborhood.
