One of the best viewpoints of the Tennessee River and the city of Chattanooga!

Located in Chickamauga & Chattanooga National Military Park, Point Park is a ten acre memorial park that overlooks the Lookout Mountain Battlefield and the city of Chattanooga. There is a paved walking path around the park that takes visitors by several historic tablets, monuments, confederate artillery positions, and scenic overlooks. 

It is at this park that you will see one of the great vantage points of the Tennessee River known as Moccasin Bend. The sunset from this view point is worth the trip, even if you don't have time to walk around, though, I highly recommend walking around the paved walkway around the circle at this park. There are many viewpoints of Chattanooga that are a nice sight to see!

Put into your gps "Point Park." It will be located in Chickamauga & Chattanooga National Military Park at Lookout Mountain. The directions will lead you to the parking lot outside of the park entrance. It costs $5 for admission into the park, and the park closes at sunset. No one mans the booth or makes you leave at sunset however, so you can rest assured you can take your sunset photos and then leave.

When you enter the park, you can take either the left or right, as it is a circle walkway and the vantage point is exactly in front of you on the opposite side of the entrance of the park. Follow the paved walkway to the opposite side of the park. You will see be able to see the Tennessee River from the other side. Once you've reached the halfway point, you'll see a historical concrete-type building that you will walk into to reach the viewpoint. On the backside of this building is the overlook. It is a popular viewpoint, so you probably won't have this to yourself unfortunately. When you're ready to head back, follow the walkway in either direction to lead you back to the entrance.

There are multiple viewpoints from this park, so you will likely stop multiple times to capture the city below you.
