“Lookout Mountains-Spectacular”
Reviewed 8 August 2014

The name " Lookout Mountain " is said to have come from the Cherokee term for "two mountains looking at each other.

Near Chattanooga, the caves of Ruby Falls are contained within Lookout Mountain, and the rock formations of the "City of Rocks" (or Rock City) attraction are situated on the ridge. From the "Rock City" we can see seven U.S. states viz:Tennessee, Kentucky, Virginia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Georgia and Alabama.

Our drive from the bottom to the top of Lookout Mountain was amazing. The scenic view was wonderful.

“You can see Downtown Chattanooga TN”

This mountain can be busy. Go early you have several attractions on the mountain. Look Out Mountain sign in front of Ruby falls. Long lines there. Enjoyed it!

“Spectacular Scenery”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

Easy 20 minute drive from bottom to top of Lookout Mountain. Well worth the side trip if you're driving through Chattanooga. Narrow 2-lane windy road, so switch drivers if you're timid. Scenery overlooking Chattanooga and the Tennessee River is awesome and it's hard to avoid trying to look as you're driving. Fun just to see the beautiful private homes that have been built on the mountain. Ruby Falls and Rock City available for fees at the top. Also, a military park offering spactacular views and lots of historical info about the Civil War battles that took place here.
