"Lookout Mountain" Top 5 Page for this destination Chattanooga Off The Beaten Path Tip by Stephen-KarenConn

Chattanooga Off The Beaten Path: 19 reviews and 28 photos

  Lookout Mountain as Viewed from Chattanooga
by Stephen-KarenConn

In the Cherokee Indian language "Chattanooga" means "rock coming to a point." And from just about any vantage point in the city it's obvious where the name came from. Lookout Mountain is not actually a pointy type mountain, but a long flat-topped rocky ridge, running many miles through northeast Alabama, across the northwestern corner of Georgia, and then coming to an abrupt stop (point) at the Tennessee River, above Chattanooga.

Many people consider Chattanooga and Lookout Mountain one and the same place, but actually they are different cities, so I have built a seperate Lookout Mountain page, which I will not duplicate in my Chattanooga tips. There is MUCH to see and to on Lookout Mountain, including famous tourist destinations such as: Rock City, Ruby Falls, the Incline Railway and a portion of the Chattanooga and Chickamauga National Military Park. If you visit Chattanooga, by all means don't miss Lookout Mountain.
