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.

The Incline was priced at a reasonable $15 per person (roundtrip) and the rides up and down were scenic/thrilling. My only complaint was that there was about an hour waiting time to board the incline, then we were forced to deboard and wait in a...More

If you're on Lookout Mountain, and you've got small children, you may as well. It is the steepest railway in the world (well, at least at the top), you get some pretty cool views of Chattanooga, and it's a good way to kill some time....More

Being on a road trip with a 6 year-old boy, we had to find something to ride in every place we visited. Chattanooga had many options - I think we ended up taking advantage of them all. Who can resist a ride up a steep...More

I recommend parking at the bottom and riding up. The lot is only 2.00 per 24 hours verses the parking meters at the top of the mountain. The train car is a little stuffy because it's not air conditioned. The view is ok but at...More

We parked up at the top near Point Park, took the Incline down & had lunch (Purple Daisy fabulous!), then took it back up again. Parking at top was easy & the meters were free when we were there a few weeks ago. But you can... More
