Owner description: 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 but sad to see the damage caused by fire. Love looking at the mountains. Green mountains I'm sure would be beautiful in the fall.

It's sad to see all the damage caused by the wildfire, but it is an awesome view. In Gatlinburg you can't tell it happned. Still just the friendiness place in Smokies!

Quick stop, well worth it. Great thing about this overlook is it is on the route to several other destinations that are well worth visiting within the park. Absolutely stop here for pictures if you're in the area and want a breathtaking view.

We make the drive to the overlook every trip. It's a great location for pictures and to see the entire downtown strip of Gatlinburg.

The shops were uninteresting and I thought the views would be more spectacular, that said though, it was a scenic drive up and lots of things for the kids to do.
