Newfound Gap Road - the road OVER the Mountains thru the National Park to Cherokee, NC. A MUST DRIVE! Visitor's Center at each end, lots of scenic overlooks to stop at - walk to Clingman's Dome (highest point) and visit Cherokee, NC. Pack a picnic lunch! Nice day trip when in Gatlinburg.
Clingman's Dome Tour - On the way to the tallest peak (elevation 6,643 ft) in the Smoky Mountains National Park you will have a bird's eye view of Dollywood, Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. You will climb to 11,600 feet and have spectacular vistas of Tennessee and North Carolina out of your windows. An unforgettable experience for all ages!
