Very nice park with good views of the city. Also very informative as I do love history but had not heard much about the Battle for Chatanooga. Lots of great information in the visitors center and good information about key parts of the Battle.

Small National Park but work the price of admission. Great views. Small museum, several Civil War canons. Great place to spread out a blanket and rest under the big trees.

This is an interesting park. Beautiful views of the valley below. It can be a little frightening for people who are afraid of heights as you can get very close to the edge.

This is a nice park for walking (not for pushing a wheel chair). There are great views of the Tennessee River and Chattanooga.

Beautiful civil war battlefield park on top of Lookout Mountain. The views of Chattanooga and the Tennessee River valley are fantastic. Hard to believe that soldiers fought on the steep mountain face. Costs $6 to get in, but well worth it.

Sometimes at point Park there is no one there to maintain the booth where you enter so you put your money into a machine and you get a ticket showing you paid. Some may think they need not pay, but sometimes a national... More
