I LOVE this view! This place commands such breathtaking views of the Smokies and Gatlinburg for FREE. It's a great place to take pictures and just soak up the beauty of the mountains. It's very easy to get to, and right off the Gatlinburg Bypass on the way to the visitor's center.

This overlook is easy to get to and offers a great view of downtown Gatlinburg as well as a great view of the western Smokies. A good place for a selfie or you can always find someone to take your picture for you.

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.
