We really enjoyed this hike because the majority of it was in the shade which was a welcome break on an extremely hot day. Please note that almost the entire hike is very rocky, so you spend a lot of time looking down so as not to trip. Also wanted to note that as Summer is in full force, the view is obscured by the trees once you get up to Sunset rock, but there are a few places you can look around to see the beautiful view. I bet it would be a fantastic hike in the winter.

My recent visit there was not a good experience. It seems that because of the volume of tourist that go there at sundown, the town does not have the parking to accommodate. The residents are very strict that you do not park on the roads. And unfortunately many visitors are ignoring the 25 mph limit while driving those sharp curves. There are many local walkers and there have been some close calls. All in all, they are way too many fun and beautiful things to see around Chattanooga without all the hassle.

This place is beautiful. A short walk down a rocky path leads you to a breathtaking view. It was a perfect day with not a cloud in the sky so things were wonderful. A great place to beat the traffic and still get the view. Keep a lookout for the parking lot as we missed it the first time. It is small so if crowded there will be no parking.

I come to the point park area of lookout mountain nearly every time I pass through the area. It is a great place to relax, get gentle exercise, enjoy a cigar outdoors and see breath taking views. Sunset on the west side at this rock is really relaxing. Driving back down the windy road just after dark is a little bit of a pain, but worth the effort! Be prepared for uneven surfaces and no grab rail on steps, but by doing that trail, you will be rewarded with many spectacular views.

This was a good hike from Point Park to Sunset Rock and back. About 2 hours round trip along a path below the rock face. Close to 100 steps at either end but doable. Path is well maintained and the views are real good.
