Lookout Mountain Attractions - Battles for Chattanooga

Tuesday, September 26, 2017
There are so many things to do in Chattanooga, and hiking at Point Park is one of them.  This Park offers the most stunning view of downtown Chattanooga and the Tennessee River.  Officially known as Lookout Mountain Battlefield. Point Park is part of the Chickamauga & Chattanooga National Military Park.  It was a beautiful park, full of history that renewed my interest in the Civil War.

You have to pay admission the $5 per person admission is good for 7 days, so if you're here for a weekend or a week you don't have to pay every time you visit.

A beautiful park on top of Lookout Mountain overlooking downtown Chattanooga and the Cumberland mountains.

The main entrance was a  two castle-esque spires.

The Point Park is  quite small, but packed with so many wonderful things to see. There is a towering monument at the center.  A short walk down to the Museum located at the northern most tip of Lookout Mountain with the most spectacular view you'll find.

You can enjoy the view from one of the many scenic overlooks, take a walk around the loop trail, or spend time learning about Civil War history. You can spend as little as twenty minutes here, or as much as hours. However much time you spend, it will be worth every minute.

Awesome view of the entire city of Chattanooga and the massive Tennessee River. Plus you will enjoy the history about Point Park .... amazingly interesting.

A giant monument commemorating the Union and Confederates who fought in the War. It's a wonderful peace monument to both sides.

This park is not too far from Rock City Garden (you don't have to go back down the mountain) and Ruby Falls . I would recommend you visit the other two attractions.
