This is a small park but packed with a lot of history. There are several cannon emplacements with cannons, an original building and the memorial which is 95 ft tall and has a Confederate and Union solder on top shaking hands with bronze story boards around the base. The views are spectacular

We went on November 13 and the fall leaves were great. There's an honor system admission of $5 per person 16+. The park has various paved paths and lookout points, each one having a different perspective and scene of Chattanooga below. There is also a tall monument, 6 canons, and facts which provide some history. Go on a clear day... More

Nice views of the city below, the monuments and history are very cool. Pretty stroll for a cool fall day. Just wear supportive shoes if you are going to climb on the rocks or do some of the hikes around the cliffs.

The views were absolutely amazing. Wherever you stood in the park you would have an amazing view. The little ones enjoyed playing with the leaves.

Lookout mountain offers a great history of the area relating both to geography and also civil war history. Add to this the wonderful views of the area and opportunities for some nice day hikes. Photo opportunities abound!

Point Park is a Civil War battle site, with several areas that commemorate the Battle for Lookout Mountain. We were there in autumn, so there was starting to be some beautiful color. Combined with the awe-inspiring views, it was perfect. There was a Park Ranger there telling about the battle, as well as several signs marking different areas. There are... More
