  • Beautiful sites all along the way with lots of pullouts to take pictures of the awesome mountains. Definitely worth the drive.  more »
  • You don't want to drive too fast that you miss the views... they're fantastic! Such beautiful mountain views and we really enjoyed the babbling brooks along the way.  more »
  • Such a nice and peaceful drive. It’s surrounded by trees, with a few tunnels here and there. The overlooks offer great views!  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!
