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