We came to Chattanooga to visit the Civil War battle fields. As usual the National Parks presentation is exceptional and it takes a full 8 hour day to get around them all. Chattanooga is a charming city. Growing fast with excellent facilities. We were pleasantly...More

Loved the history of lookout mountain. We rode the incline railway, great experience. We toured the museums, walked down Point Park.

The scenery and trails make it easy to see why so strategic in Civil war. Friendly ranger with small exhibits and rest rooms. Use free parking here. About 3 block walk from Incline. If you think things divisive now, reflect about 7000 from both North...More

A great view. It gives a better understanding of how difficult it was to get cannons up there during the Civil War.

The views were absolutely amazing! The different rock formations were really neat. The walk through was very nice, albeit a bit tight at times. The way the paths meander, you somewhat feel like you're there alone, even among the crowds. I enjoyed a very nice...More

I took my 13 year old son to Lookout Mountain and we both loved it. It's absolutely beautiful and the people working there were all so very nice and welcoming!

The waterfall was beautiful, but when we went it was a little iced over, which kind of took away from the experience for me I think. We got the ticket that included Rock City Gardens, I liked the little spots that you squeeze through the...More

Very scenic views and nice walk. Might not be good for someone who cannot walk far or do steps. Nice gift shops and friendly staff. A real treat for the price. Some of the Rock crevices we're a little tight. Great to see in the...More

Well worth the drive to the top. The rangers at the visitor's center (just across the street) are very helpful. There is parking behind the government visitor's center, and an informative display inside. (Rest rooms are at the back of the building, adjacent to the...More

Taking an 18-wheeler up Lookout Mountain is something I would attempt only if I had no choice (like making a pickup or delivery on top). The road is a good one, but it is only a 2-lane road and fairly curvy. I agree with... More
