Looking up at the incline I thought it would be scary. It wasn't. It was really nice. Loved seeing the scenery on the way to the top. I bet in the fall it would be really pretty. We will definitely be back.

Great experience.....thoroughly enjoyed the ride and views and the wonderful "Senior Discount"......after you do this once, just drive to the top of Lookout Mountain and enjoy all that it has to offer.

This was a really fun experience! You must do it if you are around Chattanooga. The view from the top is really nice. I recommend taking a walk once you reach the top. There are some really beautiful houses and beautiful views of Tennese river.
