Listed by the Guinness Book of World Records as America’s largest underground lake, the Lost Sea is part of an extensive and historic cave system called Craighead Caverns. During the Civil War the Confederate Army mined the cave for saltpeter, a commodity necessary to the manufacture of gunpowder. At the bottom of the cave you will board a glass-bottom boat for an exciting trip on the Lost Sea. Then, we’ll arrive Chattanooga at noon and explore the magnificent Lookout Mountain and Ruby Falls which is a 145-foot high underground waterfall located within Lookout Mountain. Rock City would be our next destination. It is said that it is possible to see seven states from Lover's Leap, a point in Rock City. Want to know whether that is true? You can join us and find out. At last, we’ll take the Lookout Mountain Incline Railway. Also known as “America’s Most Amazing Mile,” The Incline’s trolley-style cars climb through the natural beauty surrounding historic Lookout Mountain at a breathtaking 72.7% grade – straight up!
