The Gatlinburg Scenic overlook is actually on a bypass of Gatlinburg. That by itself would be great. Gatlinburg is a very busy and crowded town that anything to reduce the traffic there is a worthy endever. While driving this there are a couple of pullouts to look over the city of Gatlinburg. There is some informational displays at the pullouts but you have a view of the moutains and the city. You can really see how Gatlinburg nestles in the mointains. I would highly recommend taking this road at least once and more if you want to avoid the commercialism that is Gatlinburg and enjoy more time in the mountains.
