you are pretty much right on the money. M'boro to Chattanooga = 100 miles. Starts/Stops/Time Change, perhaps a tick over 2h.
Have a great trip.
What things are you interested in doing on lookout mountain? I ask because if your are doing only certain atractions or another there are some driving TRICKS as far as avoiding some congested areas and short cuts to the mountain from your direction.
Well... really, ideally, we would like to "see Rock City", and the Chattanooga National Park. Then, if time permits, we'd like to go down and see the sister half of the park, the Chicamauga battlefield in Fort Oglethorpe.
Heres a hortcut from Rock City to Chicamauga Battle field in Fort Oglethorp!
This is alot faster than getting back on the interstate!
Once you leave Rock city adn come back down off the mountain on OCHS hwy, Take a left on St. Elmo ave.
You will go down through St. Elmo's neighborhoods and then you will be surrounded by wooded areas. You will later come to a four way redlight! a store will be on you right at this stop light you will take a left onto HWY 2,
you will then after a few miles take a left onto HWY1 which takes you right through the park!
Not much traffic this way and its shorter!
OH Sweeeeeeet.... Thanks!
