Grand vista!

Get up here, to this place, and enjoy the area, the views, the clean air, the photo ops! We have been here several times, always worthwhile.

Once you leave the very busy part of Gatlinburg by means of the bypass look for this excellent stop. It will be on your right side and its fairly large for parking. Grab your cameras and shoot!

Great place to view the bustling city of Gatlinburg, especially pretty at night. Surrounded by mountains and nestled in the valley.

Love this place! It's such a beautiful view of the mountains! Worth the price of admission to spend a short or long amount of time!

we have driven by this spot on several occasions and never stopped until this time at night. Seeing the city of Gatlinburg lit up in its vibrant colors at night on a clear night can't be beat.

What's not to love not like. I love taking pictures of the breathe mountains. I have been going for 30+ years now and I never get tired of looking and taking in these scenic spots. As so as I get back home all I think about is when I am going to get to go back.

The Ober Gatlinburg Scenic Overlook was beautiful!! Words can't describe it. Although I left my $180 Ray Ban's on the trash can & took off down the chair lift without them :( I wouldn't trade the time I had there! Wish I could've stayed longer to listen to the band, I could've spent the day!

A great stepping on point to Appalachian trail and a great photo op. NC TN border. Beautiful. There is a beautiful drive up which some days takes you through the clouds. Stay a bit and take in the fresh air and beauty!

Beautiful view! Must see. If you are in the area I recommend taking the time to drive up the bypass to see this for yourself.
