It's sad to see such a historical landmark fall into disrepair! Gates were falling off their hinges, overgrown grass and weeds. You can't see the top from the road, making it a bit scary, --not the best area of town.

The Orchard Knob was a disappointment for me. We visited in the second week of June 2018. We drove there only to find the area overgrown, with no way to pull in. There were trucks there who had workers cleaning monuments, so it may be...More

Not the most exciting attraction. Good for civil war buffs. Nice views at the top of the hill. Sketchy neighborhood.

It is worth the climb to top of Orchard Knob to see Missionary Ridge and Chattanooga area. There are some impressive monuments and signage about the Civil War. That being said, the neighborhood is a bit questionable and the top of the knob feels isolated....More

Chattanooga is full of Civil War history. Orchard Knob is a must see if you are touring the other areas of the war history. This is located in the middle of a neighborhood in the city. It's a bit of a shady looking area, so...More

If you're interested in the American Civil War and you're visiting the Chickamauga (GA) battlefield, a visit to Orchard Knob along with Missionary Ridge and Lookout Mountain will give you the necessary perspective for the Battle of Chattanooga that followed.

Orchard Knob is a trip back in time in the middle of a city neighborhood. Reading about the battle of Chickamauga and Lookout Mtn. and the importance of this small city block is amazing. Nice little hike to the top of the hill, and when...More

One can just imagine General Grant,Thomas and Sherman standing on top of Orchard Knob at daybreak, the sun going over Missionary Ridge. As the sun rises it is hitting the monuments on top of the Knob and is quite a treat not to mention the...More

Lots of historical markers and explanation and a great view of the surrounding skyline; its a great quick stop to take in some history while in Chattanooga. The neighborhood is a bit depressed so lock your car when you hike up the hill.

It is true that it is not in a great area. However, we were there on a week day in the middle of the day and had no issues. It is true that the signage could have been better and it was not kept up...More
