Easy to see why people originally and continue to settle here. The scenery is just amazing and the parking ample. Stop and snap some photos! Make a memory!

what a beautiful view you get to see. You can see Gatlinburg and with the mountains around the town is amazing. A very nice place to pull off and take pictures.

We like taking long drives and stopping to see the views. No matter how many times you stop, you always notice something different; especially different times throughout the year.

Beautiful location this time of year with all the greens, clouds and different colors of leaves. Nice photo shoot area or just a great place to relax and enjoy the view and calm of the area.

We stopped here a couple times during our four day stay in town and it was so amazing! It's a great place to get pictures of the family with that amazing background.

Take your time to take in the incredible views once you reach the top! Plenty of vantage points to take a great photo (rather than pay for the photos taken on the way up!)

We've been up there on every trip and have taken pictures there on a sunny day, partially sunny day, rainy day, foggy day, and even at night.

Gorgeous view of the mountains and very peaceful. Romantic. The perfect place for couples, but would make for a great family vacation as well as there are many activities for children.
