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.

We were very, very disappointed as we drove through Pigeon Forge and Gatlingburg on our trip to the Smokey Mountains, but once we drove up to the overlook (6,000 ft!) it was worth it. Next time, I would stay away from the tourist trap areas and maybe drive a little for this fantastic scenery. Too bad they had to make the towns like a Disney World with cars...

We stopped here on our way to go on a hike to see the Gratto Falls. Definitely worth the stop. The view is breath taking.

The scenic overlook was so beautiful. The area is so inviting. We enjoyed taking in the view. We will bring grandkids here to see.

After walking the main street in Gatlinburg in which is a tourist trap with t- sheet and all the street lights of a nighttime Las Vegas. However, the view of the smoky mountains from the out view is excellent. The night views were just as impressive at night as it is in the day light. It is a most see attraction.
