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.

Great views and very informative. I went with my husband foe our anniversary, but it is a great place to go with kids as well. The lookout mountain offer a breath taking view. I recommend going early in the morning

This is not a big thrill ride but something I have wanted to do for many many years. My Grandparents rode this, sent me a post card from there and I was hooked. This was probably late 40's or early 50's. Its a neat experience,...More

We parked at the top, pay parking. Rode down and back up. It is time consuming because it only runs every 20 to 30 minutes so once you get to one point you have to wait to catch the next one. At the top you...More

Again another activity to do early before the queues. If you like engineering you’ll love the mechanism that hoists a train up a 72 degree angle. Views from the top are stunning. Go to the top observation deck and check out the deck chairs at...More

The cars are in rough shape. The window next to my son was taped up. The view is beautiful and I’m glad that we did it but it’s not something that you would want to do time and again.
