I wanted the view so I shelled out the $14 for me & $10 for my daughter. She loved it! The green lush mountains were majestic in summer. I can only imagine an Autumn view! It is a "been there, done that" tourist trap experience, but I am glad I went. It would have been nice if there were some hiking trail access up there, but we were really greeted by a souvenir shop & a small viewing station crowded with tourists. It was expected, but we went to Roaring Fork Motor Trails for light hiking beforehand, so I got my fix.

The ski lift went straight up the mountain. You could see the town from the top of the lift. It was good. Got to sit and enjoy for a short time.

It looks much more daunting than it is. It was a nice little ride, a little pricey, but not too outrageous. Great views of Gatlinburg, especially coming down the mountain. Even took my two year old.

Great if you can get to it. The parking in Gatlinburg is near impossible. Only choice is a lot for $10 a day and then you walk and walk and walk!

I could see a huge portion of the "touristy" gatlinburg. The view was amazing and worth ride to the top.
