The Ultimate Guide To Incline Railway

Incline Railway | Incline Railway Travel Guide

The Incline Railway in Lookout Mountain is said to be one of the steepest passenger railways in the world. The Incline Railway cars climb through the beautiful Lookout Mountain at a breathtaking 72.7% grade. It’s also known as “America’s Most Amazing Mile.”

Address: 3917 St. Elmo Avenue, Chattanooga, TN 37409 (Bottom), Entrance Fee: Adult: $15 round trip, Child (ages 3-12): $7 round trip. I recommend getting the combo tickets for Ruby Falls, Rock City, and Incline Railway.

I recommend embarking on this adventure from the bottom station. You could also take the incline down if you parked at the top station.

Parking: There’s a paid public parking close to the ticket booth.

Wait Times: The time I visited, there was 20 mins wait time.

Bottom Station: There is a ticket booth and an ice-cream shop.

Top Station: On the top, you would find some outlooks offering some breathtaking panoramic views of the Chattanooga valley. There are various points of Civil War interest – the Battles for Chattanooga Electric Map & Museum and Point Park, part of Chickamauga-Chattanooga National Military Park system, just a few short blocks from the Incline top station.
