The Incline’s trolley-style cars climb through the natural beauty surrounding historic Lookout Mountain at a breathtaking 72.7% grade – straight up! Sit back, and enjoy the scenic views of the mountains and valleys from the observation windows on the train as well as the panoramic views from the observation tower at the Incline’s top station. Come see for yourself why the Incline is one of the most fun things to do in Chattanooga!

While you’re atop Lookout Mountain, be sure to visit its many attractions. You’ll find points of Civil War interest, including the Battles for Chattanooga Electric Map & Museum and Point Park. Both are part of the Chickamauga-Chattanooga National Military Park system, located just a few short blocks from the Incline top station.

At the bottom Incline station in St. Elmo, you will find a great collection of unique shops, restaurants, and attractions. Some of the things you’ll find are microbrewery tours, fresh flowers, homemade candlemaking, unique coffee, indoor climbing wall, fresh-made burritos, outdoor local dining, hand-dipped ice cream, nostalgic clothing or relax with a massage.
