    The hike to Sunset Rock was wonderful. Lots of differentiating terrains with boulders, steep climbs, easy stretches, great views, small water features and moss. It was so serenade. Loved it!  more »

    If you like views of Chattanooga and the outskirts, this is the place to go. Not only do you get to look off the mountain at an older beautiful house and cabin, there are also two different trails you can hike. They are to pointe park ontop of lookout mountain and sunset rock I do believe. They are about 2.5 miles to walk if I'm not mistaken, and beautiful views. If you like to hike. ENJOY!

    I liked this place a lot! The ranger on duty was very knowledgeable and helpful. Our parks service doesn't get enough funding though.

    Great place to park for views and hiking the Lookout Mountain trails. Better than Point Park because the parking is free

    Beautiful views and an abundance of history here! The house wasn't open for a tour while we were there, but we peeked in through the window on the front door. It's just below Point Park, which is another place worth seeing.

    Historic house associated with the civil war, but is rarely open to the public. A couple of civil war civil war cannons. Great view of downtown. Trails behind the house that run along the sides of Lookout Mountain. Good place to watch birds, especially Warbles during spring migration.

Where to stay in Chattanooga

Centrally located Chattanooga hotels offer comfortable rooms just a walk from the city's best shops, restaurants, and museums. Staying in the middle of everything can cost a bundle, so if you're traveling on a budget or simply prefer a bed and breakfast atmosphere, consider staying farther away from the central part of townwhile on holiday. Most budget-friendly inns located along the free electric shuttle route servicing the downtown area offer all the comforts of home at the fraction of the price charged by the big chains.
