  • This is a nice scenic road that takes you for Tennessee Into North Carolina. a lot of history has gone through her. Just a peaceful drive.  more »
  • This is a great drive from Gatlinburg, TN to Cherokee, NC through Great Smoky Mountains NP. It's free to enter the park and this is the main road through it. Halfway through, it stops at Newfound Gap....  more »
  • I love nice, quaint drives like this one. The overgrowth of the trees and the winding path make for a peaceful day!  more »

  • Great view on both sides. The mountains just go on and on forever. Nice that the Appalachian Trail comes out here, saw some serious hikers braving the cold trail. Glad here are bathrooms but running water would be nice to wash hands - there are only hand sanitizer pumps, no sinks. Great place to stop and enjoy the view.
  • Strikingly beautiful. We found it by accident on the way somewhere else. We looked up and saw people in the trèes. We turned around and found they were actually on an observation deck. Interesting museum, nice gift shop, and beautiful views. I'd return if I'm driving near there again.
  • On a good day some of the best views in the Smokies. Go early before the crowds pick up
  • A beautiful drive full of amazing scenery, breath taking views, and rich mountain history! Set plenty of time aside and take your time. So much to take in!
  • Beautiful! Great ride on a rainy day and we stopped at several points along the way for different perspectives of the glorious Smokies!
