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.

Our family loves to hike, and we had a wonderful time doing it in the Smokey Mountains near Gatlinburg. It was a cold and rainy week, and some of the trails were still a little too crowded for our tastes, but we really had a lot of fun in the mud and many streams where other families didn't bother to go. We saw many, many of the various kinds of salamanders, and the highlight of the trip was seeing a mother black bear and her two cubs.

Really beautiful any time of the year. This is the spot to take your family shots to post on Facebook, Christmas Card, etc. On Bypass so it's easily accessible and also handicap accessible. Only minutes from downtown. A MUST-SEE!

For all those wanting to see gatlinburg and the mountains from above this is the best free spot to view from. You could ride the sky line at !$ or just drive up here for the same views.

My family and I enjoyed the atmosphere, the beautiful views, and the various attractions. A few were kind of lower end thrill, (think "Earthquake Ride") but it was good for a laugh considering it was a cheesy ride. The trolley ride was quite enjoyable, as well as the fudge! I really loved seeing the Christmas Light show in Sieverville, it was just gorgeous. The traffic in the main part of Gatlinburg is a drawback, but once you park everything is pretty much in walking distance. It's best to utilize the trolley to get around. All in all it is a beautiful experience!
