Lived in the area for years and never went to Rock City. After going was sorry I had not before. Beautiful vistas and site! The gardens are immaculate and the history is pretty cool too. Go during the holidays for lights and attractions.

Lover's leap was pretty high, but being able to see 7 states was really something. Lots of cool pictures. I could have done without the gnomes, but the rest was pretty neat.

You will have NO PROBLEMS! The path is paved very well and the climbing is done by car. One you get there, it's level. You will encounter steps every now and then, but nothing strenuous.
