Owner description: The Gatlinburg Overlook is located on the Gatlinburg Bypass which runs between the Gatlinburg Spur and Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The Gatlinburg Spur runs between Pigeon Forge TN and Gatlinburg. The Bypass is accessible from the Spur or from the National Park. There are four parking areas on the Bypass. You can exit your vehicle and take in the views. We recommend the 2nd and 3rd parking areas. From the overlooks, you will see the entire town of Gatlinburg with its majestic mountain backdrop.

“Felt like we were on the top of clouds”
Reviewed September 15, 2011

The hills. the valley with all its colorful splendor is laid out in front of you when you reach the overlook. The overlook doesnt have a lot of facilities but has restrooms. You would ahev to go down the sky lift to grab a bite to eat.
