The fall here is gorgeous and almost indescribable. There were a few colder mornings while there so in the upper elevations there was snow, while the lower elevations enjoyed a cool morning. There are a lot of hiking trails and several have natural water falls. I hiked to Laurel falls which was about 2 miles on a well worn trail.... More

We had a nice drive to Gatlinburg the traffic wasn't too bad and we decided to walk around dt. Gatlingurg and stop somewhere for lunch. The weather had started to warm up so we had a nice stroll and stopped in some shops.

There are two overlooks on the gatlinburg bypass. Worth checking out. But more importantly take the bypass on into the national park! Skip the Gatlinburg traffic.

This is a great spot to stop and take in the beautiful mountain view and the city of Gatlinburg as well. It is pretty at night and during the day as well. It is also a great stop along your bypass of the city that can be very crowded.

After an unbearable driving experience getting to Gatlinburg from Sevierville (3 hours) and then having to put up with bad service at Three Jimmy's restaurant on the far east side of town, we again put up with the maddening traffic and crowds of people on the Parkway to get to this scenic overlook of Gatlinburg. There were so many people... More

Been to Gatlinburg several times over the years and never took the Gatlinburg bypass to discover this amazing gem. Roadside pullover gives you an awesome view of Gatlinburg. We stopped during the day but next visit I want to stop and see the town in lights. Added bonus is you get to bypass downtown traffic - duh, why did it... More

With all the hustle and bustle just moments away in downtown Gatlinburg & Pigeon Forge, it would be easy to miss this hidden treasure on the Gatlinburg Bypass. If you are in town, make sure you steal away a couple moments of your vacation to take a short ride on the bypass. If you get on just inside the National... More

We have visited this park at least once a year for twenty years. Cabins have ben by Mountain Rentals, and this year by Amazing Views Of the Smokies. We love the area, all the attractions, the smells. This trip includes the Knoxville Zoo. The Smokies are God's masterpiece.
