Loved this! Worth doing and we got discounted aquarium tix. The walk up was great and tied together to see different things along the way. We brought our cameras with us and had plenty of pic ops!

Do you have to pay to just walk around Lookout Mountain? Or does it just cost to do Ruby Falls, Rock City Park, etc.
