The views were great and good history but not worth going if you are doing Rock City. They had a ton of hiking trails that led from the park. We didn't do any of them but would consider next time.

Very nice park with many historical and educational markers. View from the rim of the park is spectacular. Several hiking trails from easy to moderate . Parking is limited and rather expensive-$6.00 per vehicle and park admission is $7.00.

Easy to visit, fabulous views, and a priceless way to grasp an important part of the Civil War. The Visitor Center provides explanation.

The loop can be walked in less than 10 minutes. Stopping to read the history, and see the views could take you 30-60 minutes. It's nice, and well kept--but $7?! The only restroom is a port-a-pot.
