Known as “America’s Most Amazing Mile,” The Incline’s trolley-style cars climb through the natural beauty surrounding historic Lookout Mountain at a breathtaking 72.7% grade – straight up! Sit back, relax and enjoy the scenic views of the mountains...more

I did not enjoy this one. The views going up or down are not that great and are mainly of the trees around you. Near the top you can finally see a view of Chattanooga, but I thought there were better views elsewhere that are...More
Looking up from the bottom, the incline doesn't seem all that high or long but as you travel along, it seems like you're transported a world away! The ride is well worth it and the views are outstanding! Be sure to walk to Point Park...More
We rode The Incline with my 80-something parents while visiting Chattanooga. We’re so glad we took the time to ride it...the views are incredible. This “thing” has been in operation since the 1880’s and it’s a real engineer wearing feet! Parking next to the Incline...More
We rode the incline train on a recent trip to Chattanooga. We took our granddaughter and we all had a fun ride up and back. Nice gift shops at both ends, bathrooms at both ends, a great view from the top, very enjoyable. Glad we...More
I visited the incline about 10 years ago & as you can see by my photo, I had forgotten how steep it is! It was around 90 degrees on the trip so the incline ride was very hot as it there is no a/c and...More
The incline is certainly what you expect with that name, a very steep cart ride, we were disappointed with the destination on either stop, you can take it to go up the mountain and back or the other way around, however there’s nothing really attractive...More
This place is the best , we went and had a great time. The wait was long but it was summer time. From the top you can go down and get something to eat or a ice cream. Look around shop then go back up....More
We parked up at the top near Point Park, took the Incline down & had lunch (Purple Daisy fabulous!), then took it back up again. Parking at top was easy & the meters were free when we were there a few weeks ago. But you can... More

Both the Incline Railway and Rock City are on Lookout Mountain, but they are in two different locations on the mountain and are about a 15 minute drive away from one another. The Incline Railway is on the TN side of Lookout Mountain and you can see Chattanooga from there. Rock City is on the GA side of the mountain and is closer to Ruby Falls. I would definitely suggest visiting both because they are both unique. Please make sure to give yourself adequate time to visit Rock City; don't rush through it. I would also suggest starting at the base of the mountain and taking the lower access to the Incline Railway. If you are a history buff, there is a National Park honoring both the North and the South. There are also several beautiful trails for hiking and we carved out time to do both. There is also a quaint little restaurant, 1885, at the bottom of the mountain that you can have lunch or dinner after your trip. Very good food and service.
