Printed Text (Back)

Situated at the point of the mountain's crest, as many as thirty people at one time have stood upon its flat surface. One gazing upon it for the first time would be inclined to think that a friendly zephyr would tip it over. In this immediate neighborhood can obtained such vistas and panoramas as are conceded to be among the most remarkable in America. This curious rock formation is an object of great interest to the visitors on Lookout Mountain. It is a 15-minute drive by auto from Chattanooga over a concrete highway to Point Park on the summit of Lookout Mountain.
