I lived in Chattanooga for several years before leaving for college. I was fortunate to go hiking around both Lookout and Signal mountains as a kid, and when I had the chance to visit the area again recently, I made a point to take my kids to Point Park. This is the mountain view that you usually see for Chattanooga,... More

Young energetic and/or adventurous kids should not be taken to this park. It has little to no barriers to prevent plunges down the mountain. It's not worth the stress. Now, if your kids are mild mannered and/or clingy to you, it's probably fine. That issue aside, the views are of course amazing and it has nice, easy walking trails.

Parking was a huge pain. The few free spots were hard to get. He parks museum didn't have change so we couldn't stay long. The first meter spot stole $.75. Kids under 15 were free. Good view and historical information. Pets on leash allowed.

This was our first ever Civil War monument that we visited. This is a great first stop. The site is small and easily accessible. By taking the short walk around the site you can begin to understand both the local role of this battle as well as by looking out from the site at the Tennessee river and surrounding valleys...

The last time I visited Lookout Mtn and Point Park I was on a 6th Grade field trip, 39 nine years ago. Being an American Civil War buff I wanted to visit again with a friend that had never been before. The park was just as I remembered and the show at the museum was very informative. Take the incline... More

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.
