Great place to stop and enjoy the beauty that lies in front of you. You can see the busy town of Gatlinburg, and how it is tucked into the beautiful Smoky Mountains. Turn your back to the city, and take that awesome selfie.

So gorgeous! Great overlook of Gatlinburg and the Smoky Mountains. So easy to get to, even when it is mixed weather. Easy to park, easy to get out and take pictures. A "must do" when visiting the area.

Even though we rode through the new part of the Foothills Parkway, we still have to do our annual drive to the overlook. It would not be a trip to Galinburg without it.
