I have been to many civil war battlefields. They did a good job organizing, preserving, and telling the story. The audio tour is easy to follow. My only regret was because of the weather we could not walk the fields. Plenty of monuments and the story is told well in gone film. Nice visitors center. The film is shown regularly... More

My family and I stopped here while on our way to Florida. The views were amazing! The park was great and the history was very interesting! We look forward to going back on our next trip. A great way to spend an afternoon!

The road up to this is long and curvy. But it is worth the drive. You can see very far from the top of this mountain. They say you can see 7 states from here. There is also a tram/train that you can go on that rides you up/down the mountain, it look very steep, but like it would be... More

a great place to learn about civil war history and see great views of the Chattanooga area. Great for kids, and does not require a lot of walking for those that have trouble.

Cannot beat the views of Chattanooga from here. Much less expensive than Rock City or Ruby Falls, but just as nice scenic views. Adults $3, kids free. Take the trail down to the museum. Smallest museum in the world, but good concise history of the area and interesting civil war era photographs. You can also access several longer hiking trails... More

Point Park is part of the Chickamauga & Chattanooga National Battlefield Park. This Park has amazing views of Downtown Chattanooga. There are a few walking trails that we didn't partake in due to it being 34 degrees when we were there. If you are going to be on Lookout Mountain go here for some great perspective on history.

A great place to walk and relax. Benches at various places to sit. The VIEW is the attraction! You go to the edge and see for miles. Chattanooga below. We visited after a light dusting of snow and took pictures, it was wonderful!

Spectacular views over Chattanooga battlefields. National Park Rangers on site were extremely knowledgeable and helpful. Several vantage points had canon still in place which further enhanced the experience. Well worth a visit!

I recommend walking the 1.5 miles from Craven's House up the trail to point park to get a good idea of what they mean by the battle above the clouds, from there, visit the theater and the newly opened Och's Museum and pay your newly increased fee of 7$ or so on your way to the theater and gift shop....

As a big history fan and a photographer, this was a little bit of heaven. The park is pretty much a giant circle and is about a 20 minute walk from the lookout mountain incline. There is a way to drive up to this park if you do not want to go on the incline. I highly suggest going when... More
