**The Incline Railway will close for repairs December 29, 2019, and reopen March 2020.**
The Incline’s trolley-style cars climb through the natural beauty surrounding historic Lookout Mountain straight up at a breathtaking 72.7% grade. It is one of the steepest passenger railways in the world. 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. The ride takes approximately 15 minutes.
While atop Lookout Mountain, be sure to visit its many attractions, including the Battles for Chattanooga Electric Map and Museum and Point Park, both part of the Chickamauga-Chattanooga National Military Park system.
At the bottom Incline station in St. Elmo, visitors will find a great collection of unique shops, local restaurants and attractions, such as microbrewery tours, homemade candlemaking, unique coffee, indoor climbing wall, hand-dipped ice cream and nostalgic clothing.
