You cannot miss this photo op in Gatlinburg. It is awesome. There are a couple of places to park and walk down so can get some great views.

This is a beautiful place, and a couple of the trails are still opened. However, due to the construction of a new bridge, the main motor trail is closed. There is a very nice, easy hike through a nature trail at the Ogle house just as you enter the drive

If you want to be awed by beauty, waterfalls and much more. Then do not miss this experience. There is no charge. Roaring fork is at the top of airport road/Natural Springs road traffic light 8. In the middle of downtown and on the same road that the Holiday Inn Resort and convention center and space needle is on .... More

A beautiful mountain stream that offers lots of great scenic shots. I found a bridge on Low Cut Road that gave me a wonderful Fall foliage shot. Private property all around so I had to shoot from the bridge itself. No parking though at that spot.

We visited in June. The view was beautiful. We saw several deer on our drive through. I would love to take this drive in the fall/ early winter. I can imagine the changing colors is gorgeous!

This driving route goes, up and down and around and around and is gorgeous. It takes at least an hour. The old homesteads are worth stopping for, or if you just want to drive thru it- it is beyond beautiful.

Take time to visit this out of the way section of the Smoky Mountain National Park. It is just a mile or so from downtown Gatlinburg. A narrow, winding 5 1/2 mile one-way road invites you to slow down and enjoy nature. Do not let the 5 1/2 miles fool you.. You are going to spend about two hours here... More
