This is an excellent place to shoot photos. It can be a little crowded at times, but the best time is as the sun is setting and the light in gatlinburg are starting to show.

This is by far one of the most beautiful times of the year in the Great Smokey Mountains. I highly suggest a day trip on highway 441 from Gatlinburg to Clingman's Dome.

So many beautiful places to visit it is difficult to choose. The views are wonderful and every one worthy of stopping to take pictures. Lots of wheelchair areas and paths in this area and lots of benches to stop and rest for us older folks.

Just a breathtaking view. We went to quite a few areas and none disappointed. We took some selfies and it's just gorgeous with the mountains behind us

Opportunities for really great photos here. At times can be a little crowded but it is worth the wait. Gives you a birds eye view of some pretty amazing sites.

Words can't describe the view from here. It is awesome. You can see for miles, mountain tops houses on mountain sides. Also you can see things you may want to go back and visit at a later time. A must see
