Lookout Mountain Incline Railroad

Fifteen minutes is all it takes to unlock the Tennessee Valley's scenic beauty aboard the historic Lookout Mountain Incline Railway. This rail line has been in operation for over 125 years, taking the first travelers up the mountainside in 1895. Despite its impressive age, this funicular railroad is the second of its kind on Lookout Mountain and the last of several pathways constructed to the top.

Trains depart every 20 minutes, with two trains operating at a time - one descending from the top and one ascending from the bottom. In the middle of the mountainside, a passing loop allows the cars to change places safely. The scenic journey is made at a slow and steady pace of just 10 miles per hour, allowing riders to take in all the magnificent views from their comfortable seats. Both fully enclosed cars were replaced in March of 2020 and now include even more windows to capture the scenery. Huge picture windows line the sides of the bright red and yellow cars, and on the top, domed glass provides another angle from which to watch the Tennessee Valley unfold. Each departure can accommodate up to 42 guests.

With over 100,000 guests each year and a client roster that includes the likes of President Teddy Roosevelt and Elizabeth Taylor, the Incline is a delight for every passenger that graces its rails. Some of the best vistas in southern Tennessee await on "America's Most Amazing Mile."
