Lookout Mountain Hang Gliding
Yes, it's summertime in Chattanooga, which means it's prime time to get out there and experience the outdoors. Our REALTORS® get asked all the time what it is that makes Chattanooga a special place to live, and there are a lot of ways to answer that question, but our city's natural resources rank at the top of the list. To understand why we love living in Chattanooga, you need to look no farther than Lookout Mountain. 

Overlooking Chattanooga just minutes from Downtown, Lookout Mountain offers expansive, panoramic views across the Tennessee River, the city of Chattanooga, and the rolling mountains beyond. Lookout Mountain is home to Lookout Mountain Flight Park and Resort.

Hang Gliding on Lookout Mountain

Lookout Mountain Flight Park and Resort opened its doors in 1978 and became one of the most successful hang gliding schools in the United States. They gained the reputation as one of the best places to introduce yourself to hang gliding. Whether you're a seasoned thrill seeker looking for your next challenge, or an eager student ready to learn the ropes of hang gliding, you'll find plenty of opportunities here.

No experience is necessary to ride tandem with a certified instructor on a hang glider 3,000 feet over Lookout Mountain. The thermal air currents that rise along the Cumberland Mountains make this area perfect for gliding, allowing pilots to hang over the ridges and valleys for miles. And Lookout Mountain's views are nothing short of spectacular. 

Lookout Mountain Hang Gliding also offers accommodations, including rental cabins, bunkhouses, tent camping and full-hookup RV camping. The 44-acre landing zone includes a pool, volleyball courts, bonfires and an unforgettable atmosphere. You'll also find a wide range of packages to fit your budget, time constraints, and skill level. Trust us – you just haven't experienced Chattanooga until you've experienced it from above! 

More Lookout Mountain Attractions

Hang Gliding is an incredible way to experience Lookout Mountain, but it's certainly not the only attraction on this iconic peak. The mountain offers many hiking and biking trails, ranging from a short afternoon stroll to a challenging trek through the rugged terrain. The rewards, of course – a chance to experience the tranquility of nature and a fantastic view – are well worth the exertion. 

Lookout Mountain is also home to several world-class attractions that have been drawing visitors from all around the world for a century or more. Trek through the natural wonders of Rock City, ride the world's steepest passenger railroad up the Incline Railway and visit Ruby Falls, a stunning underground waterfall that tumbles 145 feet through the caves in the heart of the mountain.
