Chattanooga has trolley like Incline Railway scales steep Lookout Mountain before reaching Ruby Falls waterfall and Rock City, featuring sweeping views, sandstone formations, and gardens. Point Park, also atop Lookout, marks the site of a Civil War battle now honored at the Battles for Chattanooga Museum. But since we had a car, we drove to the Ruby falls first as it was supposed to get closed by 5 pm. We reached there and took the ticket which will take us 1100 feet inside the lookout mountain and then towards the 150 feet tall fall. Some distance was covered in a lift after which we had to walk. This is a guided tour and they take you in batches of 9-10 people.
We boarded the elevator and it took us 650 feet down. Once we got out of the elevator the guide explained to us about the place and its history. This place is a limestone cave and it had many live rock formations while some had stopped growing. We started to walk and soon were able to see beautiful limestone formations but were instructed not to touch any of them. We were able to see the Elephant's feet, Fish, Dragon, Angel's wing and much more. The path was narrow and wet mostly because it is a live limestone cave. The guide explained us the story of the founder of this cave Leo Lambert.
