Travel Guide
Lookout Mountain showing tranquil scenes, signage and views
Experience Georgia’s historic high country when you visit this mountaintop city, where monumental rock formations shelter beautiful parks and gardens.

Lookout Mountain is a city on a mountain of the same name in Walker County. With its remarkable geological formations, valley views and tranquil gardens, Lookout Mountain is one of Chattanooga’s most popular getaways. Discover Lookout Mountain’s exciting outdoor family adventures. Investigate historic railways that climb up the rocky foothills or delve into a cave to see an awe-inspiring waterfall.

One of Lookout Mountain’s highlights is the Rock City Gardens. This extraordinary geological wonder provides insight into the region’s unique form. Wander along the enchanted trail and admire tranquil gardens and native trees. Hike along the brow of a rocky mountain 1,700 feet (520 meters) above sea level and look out across Chattanooga Valley. Walk along a dizzyingly high swing bridge and see a waterfall cascading 100 feet (30 meters) down the face of the rock. On a clear day, you might be able to see the summits of North Carolina from the mountaintop.

You won’t believe your eyes when you visit Ruby Falls, one of America’s deepest underground waterfalls. Clamber into a dark cavern to watch this 145-foot (44-meter) waterfall leap from the cave rim above you. This cave system also has a fun-filled zip-line course. Check out the views from Lookout Mountain Tower and spot downtown Chattanooga and the Tennessee River Gorge.

To reach Lookout Mountain’s captivating attractions, drive or catch the historic Incline Railway. This charming railway has been taking passengers up the steep face of the mountain since 1895.

Lookout Mountain is a mountaintop city on the border of Tennessee. It is a 15-minute drive from the city of Chattanooga. Enjoy Lookout Mountain as a daytrip or stay overnight in one of the mountain’s boutique suites or inns. With its superb views, exciting adventures and indulgent accommodations, Lookout Mountain offers the perfect escape.
