Recommended length of visit: <1 hour
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.

“Beautiful view from sunrise to sunset”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

An awesome viewpoint overlooking the entire city of Gatlinburg with the mountains as a stunning backdrop. Amazing at sunrise! And getting there is the best shortcut in and out of busy Gatlinburg.

“Nice view looking down into the city”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

Its located on the Gatlinburg by pass .You can take the bypass coming from Pigeoun Forge and you will travel a couple of miles and is on the left side of the road. You can see downtown really well and also see the Tram & the skylift as well. The space needle is visable as well.
