Lookout Mountain Incline Railway Information

Chattanooga, Tennessee’s Lookout Mountain Incline Railway is a ride unlike any other in the world.  Referred to as “America’s Most Amazing Mile”, the Incline Railway has delighted guests to the Chattanooga area for well over a century.  Designated as both a National Historic Site and National Historic Mechanical Engineering Landmark, the Incline Railway has been one of Chattanooga’s most unique attractions since 1895. As the Chattanooga Incline Railway climbs historic Lookout Mountain, Chattanooga’s surrounding mountains and valleys come alive.  The trolley-style railcars carry you cloud high and the breathtaking 72.7% grade of the track near the top gives the Incline Railway the unique distinction of being the steepest passenger railway in the world. Sit back, relax and enjoy as you are taken up and down the side of Lookout Mountain, gaze at the scenic view from the observation windows on the Incline Train and enjoy the panoramic view from the observation tower at the Incline Railway’s top station.  You will marvel at the view from the highest overlook on Lookout Mountain.   On a clear day you can see the Great Smoky Mountains which are over 100 miles away!!!
