If it weren’t for trip advisor, we would have never know about this gem. Can either drive up the mountain to it, or park at the Incline Parking lot and take the Incline. Then pay 7 dollars per person entry fee on the honor system....More

Enjoy the history lesson about the union's remarkable win at Chattanooga. An easy half day walk, climb, monuments, museums, and spectacular views.

I saw pictures of Point Park and asked the man who checked us in at our hotel where it was. He didn’t know. Unfortunately for him, he was missing out on a hidden gem just 15 minutes from the hotel. There are lots of signs...More

Had the opportunity to join in on a ranger program, and was very pleased! It really helped me to better understand what I was seeing and really get the perspective the Confederates had during the siege.

I would definitely return to this park. The views are beautiful and the trails are awesome. Some of the trails are concrete and others are not. Plaques with information about the Civil War can be found throughout the park.

If you love history then this is a must see. The battles that are talked about aren’t taught in most history books. It also makes you realize what the soldiers on both sides had to endure. Great place to go if you also like hiking.
