We love driving on the bypass to this overlook! It is so awesome seeing how small Gatlinburg looks nestled down in the mountains!

It was worth it. The night was clear, the view was spectacular. Since it was early in the season the trees hadn't leafed out too much so the view was unobstructed. There was a 3/4 moon and the temperature was ideal. It was a great experience for us all.

We have been here during several different times of the year, from April to December. It's a god place to get a view of Gatlinburg and the Smokies. Just wish I had remembered to bring my tablet so I could get panoramic shots.

Now that is a view to behold. Spend sometime there to soak up the area. I hope commercial building will stay away. A must visit place for all.

We almost always drive the by pass a few times each trip. There are 2 pull off spots. Both are nice and give you a different view. We like to go there at night and look at the stars and the city lights. If the town is busy and you don't feel like driving through Gatlinburg then you can take... More
