You cannot visit Gatlinburg without taking the Gatlinburg By-pass and visiting all the overlooks. Beautiful scenery.

Great stop to view the mountains and take a few photographs. Beautiful trip up to the overlook. Easy to get to. A little warm in July...pushing over 100 degrees.

We drive the Bypass all the time to get around G-Burg. But I never tire of stopping at these overlooks for a picture or three. Great spot for a view of the city in the valley.

A great view of the smokies. Gatlinburg is best viewed from a far; drive through as quickly as you can to avoid this tourist trap. The mountains in the Smokies is the best place to be

Sunsets were spetacular! Worth the drive!!! We also went to hike Clingmans Dome. That was a difficult walk but worth the drive and climb. All pull out areas had room for 5 or more cars. Felt safe as long as you went slow.

There are two overlook points on the Gatlinburg By-Pass. The both give great views of the mountains, but the northern most is better.

The Gatlinburg scenic overlook is a MUST for my family whenever we are in the Smokies. Mom brought us here when we were kids. Now that I am grown, I bringmy family. We always stop here on the bypass and take a family photo with the mountains in the background. It is a family tradition. One I am sure will... More
