Overview
More
The Gatlinburg Overlook is located on the Gatlinburg Bypass which runs between the Gatlinburg Spur and Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The Gatlinburg Spur runs between Pigeon Forge TN and Gatlinburg. The Bypass is accessible from the Spur or from the National Park. There are four parking areas on the Bypass. You can exit your vehicle and take in the views. We recommend the 2nd and 3rd parking areas. From the overlooks, you will see the entire town of Gatlinburg with its majestic mountain backdrop.

Beautiful view and it goes AROUND Gatlinburg, which after you drive through once, you probably don't want to do again.

Great view and free as well. We would recommend to everyone. If in the area at least stop and snap a few photos.

Beautiful views of the valley and the mountains. Drove to RV through the Mountains with the grand kids and they wanted to stop and take pictures. Beautiful views!

Beautiful spot, beautiful view and great for getting your family vacation photos! You also don't have to drive through Gatlinburg and all of the foot and car traffic!

If you want to get away from all the traffic in Gatlinburg, take the by-pass. Its much faster plus you get to see a BEAUTIFUL view of the mountains.

We love to come here every year when visiting family that live in Tennessee. It's a beautiful place and a great place to visit.

Saw the sights, took pictures. Trees, hill tops, you either go in the woods after that or not. I live practically in the Ga mountains, so the view is typical for me.

The wait was minimal and the views were spectacular. This is a must o when visiting Gatlinburg. The mini tour description during the climb was pleasant as well.

I come to the scenic overlook every time I visit Gatlinburg! The price is great and its still so beautiful, even after the fire. Great for all ages.
