Uf you are near Chattanooga, you must go up Lookout Mountain. Ride the incline railway, or drive up. Totally worth it either way. Wow what breathtaking views with the fall leaves changing color.

Each attraction at Lookout Mountain has a price. It's nothing to drive up the mountain - but to get to the point where you can see the seven states is the entrance fee into Rock City. It's $20 to get in there. They have a... More

Are dogs allowed in the Park?

Response from Patricia W | Reviewed this property |
I know they are allowed on the trails around Point Park, but I don't recall any in the park proper. They are allowed on the Chickamauga battlefield and the Signal Mountain one.

Do you have to pay to just walk around Lookout Mountain? Or does it just cost to do Ruby Falls, Rock City Park, etc.
