Lookout Mountain Incline Railway, Chattanooga, TN


The Lookout Mountain Incline Railway is an inclined plane railway located along the side of Lookout Mountain in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Passengers are transported from St. Elmo's Station at the base, to Point Park at the mountain summit, which overlooks the city and the Tennessee River. The railway is approximately one mile 1.6 km in length single track except for a short two-track stretch at the midway point, allowing operation of two cars at one time, and has a maximum grade of 72.7. It is billed as one of the world's steepest passenger railways. The inclined railway is just part of the area attractions. We got courtesy car and also visited Rock City. Rock City features a long, convoluted rock trail lined with gardens. These gardens contain hundreds of labeled local trees and plants. The trail also leads through a variety of bizarre rock formations, including the 1000-ton Balanced Rock and the Fat Man's Squeeze. Two other sections, the Fairyland Caverns and father Goose Village, are rock caves decorated with blacklight-responsive sculptures. This is a daddy daughter dream day. I plan on going back soon to see Ruby falls. Ruby Falls is a 145-foot high underground waterfall located within Lookout Mountain. - Submitted by Larry Carvagno
