This is a wonderful drive through the mountains and the forest. Take your time to enjoy the peacefulness and to spot wildlife along the way. Stop at the overlooks; the views are well worth the time.

This drive really unfolds the beauty of The Smoky Mountains. Lush green forest covers either side of the road with some view points which give a good panoramic view of the Smokies. Keep your eyes open to spot wildlife on this road. Absolute must take route to cherish the beauty of the Smokies.

Must do in Smokies.
Number of scenic points with amazing vistas of the great Smokies. The road is winding and curvy. Plan atleast 4 hrs for one way if you plan to stop at all scenic points

We did this our first day, and thought this was a great drive, with lots of wonderful stops. We saw a fox on the way in on the side of the road, but for the most part the wildlife was limited to butterflies and birds. The views were great. Lots of beautiful flowers. Lots of great pictures. The farm on the NC side visitor center is worth a visit. Both visitor centers were great. Buy the guides, they are worth the few dollars.
