Owner description: 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 and valleys from the observation windows on the train as well as the panoramic views from the observation tower at The Incline’s top station. And while you’re up top, be sure to visit the many points of Civil War interest, the Battles for Chattanooga Electric Map & Museum and Point Park, part of the Chickamauga -Chattanooga National Military Park system, just a few short blocks from the Incline top station.Then, after you descend back down to the Incline bottom station, explore historic St. Elmo, where a wonderful collection of unique shopping and dining experiences await you.

One of a kind rail trip. Steep, steep, steep and fun, fun, fun. Check it out, along with Ruby Falls and Rock City. They are all there close together. ~ Jeffrey

It's a pretty simple ride. You get on the trail and a big steel cable takes and pulls you striaght up a giant hillside until your almost straight up and down. Kinda scary! Knowing if the cable was to break it be a wild ride back down! Will give u a little rush, did me atleast.Tickets are kinda overpriced I believe but I would recommend trying it once. Don't buy anything at the gift shop at the top. You'll find something cheaper somewhere else.

You can't take this ride just anywhere! Have rode it numerous times over the years and still makes my stomach flip!- Don't miss it and get out and walk around the upper station- a true slice of Chattanooga!
