We enjoyed going to Rock City and Lookout Mountain. You can see very far - 7 states! It's somewhere we always bring visitors to.

Heading out to sunset rock on a pretty day is a must whether you are a Chattanoogan or a visitor to our area. For rock climbers, it offers challenging routes and bouldering opportunities. If you more of a spectator, you can hike the trail to point park for a short walk through the woods and scenic views from the bluff.

Lookout Mountain is incredibly beautiful and an area must see. It has beautiful houses and three main attractions, the incline railroad, Ruby Falls and Rock City. If you start in the morning you could make a whole day of sight seeing.

We decided on the Rock City trail. It was very interesting and lots of fun for myself and the three teenage girls I took. The view at the top was outstanding, and we even got to see a couple get engaged at the Lovers Leap stop. I highly recommend Rock City!

I never realized how close this was to downtown. This was my first trip up to Lookout Mountain. My daughter has already asked to come back. She loved it. We had a very unusual warm weather.

Not only was it absolutely beautiful with breathtaking views, it was informative. I learned so much about the Civil War's "Battle Above The Clouds." I could have stayed for several more hours reading and looking but our young men grew weary for the aquarium.

This is the second time for me at Point Park. Just like the first time, the setting was a time for reflection and wonder at the extraordinary bravery and determination displayed on this hill overlooking Chattanooga. More than anything else that evokes the history of the place is the New York Peace Memorial - a memorial to remembering those who... More

We visited Point Park as part of a day trip to Chattanooga. The view from the overlook is interesting, but I think we missed the best part of this area. Point Park is in a neighborhood at the top of the mountain; we were expecting something more remote. Would definitely do it again but spend more time exploring the area.

You can't beat the views from up here and do yourself a favor and come up on the incline railway. Combined they make for an awesome experience.
