Are there any picnic spots along the Roaring Fork Motor Trail?

Thanks,

There aren't any picnic areas along the Motor Trail but Mynatt Municipal Park is located near the entrance. It has picnic tables, grills and restrooms..

I agree with BryanBe about that picnic area. We've stopped there a few times in the past, and it's very scenic, and restful.

Sadly there are none. Wish there were...a leisurely drive and a picnic would be perfect out there!

Prior posters are correct that there are no picnic tables and formal sites. That said, there are plenty of wonderful places to picnic. I especially like the ones along the roaring fork creek past the last homeplace and to the left of the road. Just walk a few steps off the road and enjoy.

If you really want a picnic area, go to the Greenbrier Road area and travel into the GSMNP. There are several designated day camp or picnic areas along the water. Much more privacy and just a beautiful place that you can access by automobile. Greenbrier is north of Gatlinburg and a right turn off of Hwy 321. Recommended greatly.
