  • Great views over the city with just enough parking (in December) to enjoy the views. Very easy on and off from the Bypass.

  • We took the short ride up the bypass to look back at our resort and it was well worth the trip to see these Smokey blue mountains.

  • This is one of the most popular spots for taking pictures of the city of Gatlinburg with Mt. Leconte for a backdrop. Views from here are always beautiful but if you want a spectacular view then do...

  • Beautiful place to stop and see the mountains. We were lucky enough to have a little rain and see the mountains smoke. Highly recommend.
  • If you time it right, you can see everything without the haze. As cool as the overlook was, I think the drive up there is the best. As much as I love driving, I really wanted to be a passenger just so I could look all around.
  • It was a nice drive and the view is hidden until you get to the overlook. There were a few scraggly trees right off the rail of the overlook that was blocking the view a little. The view is amazing.
  • Gorgeous every season. Many people still don't know about this place, which makes it easier for us to park 😄
  • It's a busy spot but super beautiful. We didn't have time to drive into the park this visit but this view made me feel a little better about that. Beautiful views of the mountains and downtown Gatlinburg.
