Known as “America’s Most Amazing Mile,” 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, relax 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. And while you’re up top, be sure to visit the many points of Civil War interest, the Battles for Chattanooga Electric Map & Museum and Point Park, part of the Chickamauga -Chattanooga National Military Park system, just a few short blocks from the Incline top station.Then, after you descend back down to the Incline bottom station, explore historic St. Elmo, where a wonderful collection of unique shopping and dining experiences await you.

Family of 7 kids a ages 7 thru 15. We absolutely love this part of Lookout. The ride up was beautiful, calming, and just well.... beautiful. The lookout point was amazing and it really highlights some of the best things about TN.

I've been on inclines many times, but not quite like this one. It's the steepest incline in the world, according to their literature. Believe me, it is steep! At the top is a great view of the valley below. There's a snack shop at the...More

I definitely recommend the triple play tickets and seeing Rock City, Ruby Falls, and the Incline Train on the same day. This particular attraction has just the incline and then two levels with viewing decks. Point park is 3 blocks around the corner which might...More

We took a wrong turn and ended up at the upper station but it worked out great. We rode down, had lunch in St Elmo, then rode back up. The views were fantastic.

It sells you well: world's steepest railway but in reality it does not feel so steep or special. Waste of 30-40m of your life if return trip. Kids might like it though
