We stopped here whilst travelling between Atlanta and Nashville. Some great views both on the way up and down the mountainside as well as at the top. Reasonably inexpensive, and worth the slight detour on our trip.

This incline scares me Everytime! The toddler enjoyed it and keeps talking about going up the mountain! The guides are friendly and informative. There are many trips up and down the mountain so the wait is minimal. The view from the top is just beautiful!

While stopped in Chattanooga we rode the Incline. It was a good experience. It takes about 10 mins each way, however, the wait to get on the train on the way back took a while. My kids are 10 & 12 and enjoyed it.

This incline goes up the mountain and back up. There was nothing fantastic about it. We will not go again.

The historical Incline Railway is only a 10 min trip each way, but I highly suggest you try it at least once just for the cool experience of being on it and seeing in first person the 75°+ incline! Quaint little town at the bottom...More
