“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!
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.
A bit overpriced for what you get, but it still is a unique experience
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.
The Incline Railway is a funicular railway that operates alongside the Tennessee River. The railway consists of two cars that travel up and down a steep hill, carrying passengers between the riverfront and Lookout Mountain.
The railway is open year-round and offers stunning views of the river and mountains.
We think a trip on the Incline Railway is one of the best things to do in Tennessee!
Very unique experience and the views were amazing. This was our first time on anything like this and our Son was very happy to grab the front seat. It’s amazing to see how this operates. We visited Rock City on other side of the mountain first and then made a quick trip up the TN side and we enjoyed it. We visited around 5pm on a week day in August and had no wait.
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.
