Very nice garden and walking trail. Excellent views. A must visit while in Chattanooga. Many nice areas for pictures. It is good for all ages. Lots of walking. However, easy walk and beautiful views. One of the best attractions in Chattanooga.

We went here on a Saturday, while they were doing Rocktoberfest. It was awesome. Great food, beer, and German music. Kids had a blast tour the gardens. This place definitely has a magical feel. Can’t wait to go back!

You will have NO PROBLEMS! The path is paved very well and the climbing is done by car. One you get there, it's level. You will encounter steps every now and then, but nothing strenuous.
