“America's most amazing mile”

Take a ride on one of the steepest passenger railways in the world - Lookout Mountain’s Incline Railway.   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!

We stopped here on the 4th of July! Other than the long wait it was a pretty neat stop. Not sure it was worth the cost 18.00 per Adult. Unless you are in the front of the tram then the pictures are just ok, it reminded me of the tram in Hong Kong.

A unique experience and at least worth doing once. Top of the mountain, you need quarters for the parking space and bottom of the mountain there is a $2 a day parking area. Scenic view from the top and a nice place to eat at 1882's right across the street. The ice cream shop is also nice. Leaves every half hour and was a little pricey.

Didn't have to wait to get on a train. Kids enjoyed it (11 & 8 yrs). Entertaining enough :)

Neat experience to do once. The best part were the views from the tip of the mountain, which you can just drive. Waiting in line was not the best with kids.

A bit overpriced for what you get, but it still is a unique experience
