Gram some craft beer and food from the Tap Room in St Elmo, or grab dinner at 1885 Grill and ride up the Incline for a beautiful mountain view experience!

This is a picturesque place for sure but if it's crowded and you have kids, you probably want to skip it. We spent 2 hours waiting to go up and 1 hour waiting to come back down. The 10 min trip was beautiful but the meltdowns were not worth it.

I used to ride from house up to Point Park and hike back down the trails to my house.

We absolutely love this part of Lookout. The ride up was beautiful, calming, and just well.... beautiful. The lookout point was amazing and it really highlights some of the best things about TN. we did this years and years ago and I still remember every single detail. Just one of those things that sticks with you.

The Incline Railroad is a funicular going up Lookout Mountain. This funicular is considered to be the steepest railroad in the world, and if you ever get a chance to ride it down, you will know why. While visiting the Incline Railroad Museum, you should make a point to visit Point Park where you can see the famous Mocassin Bend in the Tennessee River.

The Lookout Mountain Incline Railway is a breathtaking railway line that runs up the mountain at a very steep incline. It's not for those with fear of heights or those who can't stomach such steep grades. I'm not much for steep grades, but I really enjoyed it. The ride up and down is slow and not bumpy as I thought it might be. At the top there are some cool sites (Battle for Chattanooga), the overlook, and a gift shop and food stall. The views from the top are gorgeous and should not be missed.
