Great history up here and unbelievable views of Chattanooga and beyond. Go on a clear day for best results. Nice, paved trail to monuments and lookouts. Didn't visit the museum as we got there after 5. GREAT VIEWS!!!

My husband likes to visit civil war places and this is worth seeing. Its on the top of a mountain. You get a real feel for what the men went through at that time. There are cannons to see and a story to learn. The view from up there is breath taking. The day we were there the winds were... More

One of the things I love about the whole Lookout Mountain area and nearby Fort Oglethorpe is the way Southern history has been preserved. As one strolls through the battlefields and wooded areas its easy to imagine the soldiers on both sides giving their all for what they believe in. Incredible views can be seen as well.

There are Parking and Admittance fees at Point Park. This park is in a residential neighborhood and the only parking available is at a meter (takes quarters only). The meter we parked at did not work so there was no way to park there. We were going to chance it but glad we didn't b/c the meter maid travels the... More

I have been through Chattanooga twice in the past several months and I always need to stop here, walk the trails, and sit on the rocks to enjoy the views. There is some walking downhill , a lot of walking uphill, and several sets of stairs. Good Exercise for cheap entry fee (it's $5 per person.)

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...
