“See seven states at Rock City”
Take in the breathtaking views of seven states at Lookout Mountain's Rock City. This natural wonder features unique rock formations, lush gardens, and stunning waterfalls. Walk across the Swing-A-Long Bridge, explore the Fairyland Caverns, and take a break at the Lover's Leap to enjoy the panoramic views. Rock City is a true gem of the South and a must-visit for anyone seeking natural beauty and adventure.
This was such a fun experience! Walking thru the caverns and trails was so exciting. All the little nomes hidden along the trails were really cute. There were some tight spots along the way so if you are on the heavy side or handicap it will be very difficult to navigate. Also best to wear tennis shoes - some spots are slippery and tricky to maneuver. Definitely will be back!
The drive was amazing. The views from Lookout Mountain at Ruby Falls were a nice look over Chattanooga, but we didn't have time or patience to wait in line for tickets and walk through. HOWEVER, we loved the drive and especially through fairy tale neighborhood with streets like Cinderella Drive and Aladdin Lane. Very charming neighborhood.
Visited 10/25/15. Thought it would be more natural... There are some cool views and landscape but as someone previously mentioned it was "fabricated nature". The trees had lights wrapped around then and kind of ruined the feel of nature. Spent about 2.5 hours walking through the trails. The swinging bridge and lovers leap waterfall was pretty cool. But it made me wonder if it was a real waterfall... Had some nice fall colors. Agree it was expensive for what is. Paid $19.95 per person for entry since it was "rocktoberfrst".
Not very good for someone in a wheelchair limited access to almost everything. It was nice but not for 20 buck each we prob won't go back.
Much more than I expected! We had a great day exploring the rocks, caves, beautiful views, flowers & gnomes. Would recommend sneakers it's a lot more climbing around than I thought it would be. Well maintained trails to follow with lots of ups and downs.The view at the top was unbelievable. Plenty of chairs to sit and enjoy the view while having a drink, snack or lunch. I would without a doubt go back when in the area.
Rock city was amazing. The views, the trails, caves...left you wondering what was around the next corner. Wear comfortable shoes because there is a lot of walking.
If you are going through this area you should definitely stop at Rock City! I would recommend the double package they offer that includes Ruby Falls. The falls are about 10 minutes away. Rock City at a steady pace took about 2-ish hours.
This place is gorgeous! The gnomes are cheesy, but it's still well worth the admission place if you like gardens...or rocks. If I lived closer, I'd get an annual pass. For those of you with dogs, they have trash cans along the trail. You just may have to hang onto that poo bag for a while before you see one.
This place was absolutely incredible. Unreal location. The landscape and the paths that wind through the rocks are phenomenal. I am so grateful I was able to experience this. I pretty much had to run through it. Try and plan out some more time so you can really get the full effect and explore a bit more.
Love Rock City. Amazing view. Super cool place to visit in the fall or Christmas time. :)
