This spot has an amazing view. We were lucky to get some awesome pictures of a storm blowing in!

“Trees need to be trimmed back a little”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2012

View was obstructed some by the trees that grew out. Needs to be trimmed back some so you have an unobstructed view.

“Great time of year!”

Awesome foliage, but need to time the traffic right or you'll be in the car for hours!

“Outstanding vistas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2012

Gatlinburg Scenic Overlook is spectacular no matter what time of year. I sell wildlife and nature photography and always stop at this location to capture something beautiful and just enjoy the view of Gatlinburg below. Any time of the day or evening, winter, spring, summer, fall, the view is breathtaking and well worth the stop!
